Vermont Edition looks at the recent history of Vermont Yankee, beginning with Entergy's purchase of the plant in 2002, and the events that unfolded in the following decade that changed public perception of the plant. Our guest is UVM researcher Richard Watts, who chronicles that period in his new book, "Public Meltdown: The Story of the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant."
Also in this segment, reporting by VPR's John Dillon on the current legal status of the plant.
