It's been six years since the earthquake hit, the tsunami struck, and nuclear reactors exploded in Fukushima.  So I asked three people who lived through Tokyo's version of the nightmare to relive their experiences.  While Tokyo was not a deadly place to be, it was on the verge of falling apart. Tokyo survived, but it certainly dodged a nuclear-tipped bulled fuelled with the power of one of the most powerful earthquakes on record. Yikes!  We had to deal with government confusion, media lies, family pressure, and 900 aftershocks. 900! 

One thing that I've noticed is that time moves us on, and the way we think about the horror today is far different from how we were reacting to the disaster when it occurred. At the end of the podcast, I rail on about the strange events that arose out of the confusion and destruction.  Humans are strange creatures.  There's some gallows humour, but our thoughts are with the people who died, and the people who survived.
