    The Global America Business Institute is pleased to present Nuclear Energy in Korea, a new audio podcast that endeavors to promote and expand discussion of the major issues and challenges in Korean nuclear energy, as well as the US-Korean relationship on the questions of nuclear energy. As a non-partisan audio podcast program, Nuclear Energy in Korea combines an ever-expanding base of research and development in nuclear energy with equally important policy discussions.

    The program features both one-on-one interviews with experts and field leaders, as well as in-depth documentary-style reporting to provide listeners with balanced and comprehensive coverage of some of the most pressing questions of our modern age.

    GABI will introduce new episodes of Nuclear Energy in Korea periodically, so please visit our website for podcast updates.
