How do you like the new banner I made for Copenhell?

Wait, that was for Copenhell? I like it, let's keep it!

What's Copenhell? Let's go back to the old one!

Whatever, I want a completely new one!

InterestHBO Chernobyl critique

1) I believe they modeled the visual appearance of the radiation victims on actual photos.
2) It was impossible to contain the news of the disaster, but the Soviet government certainly did try.
3) 31 deaths, sure, but how many got cancer, deformities, or other negative effects?
4) Sure other disasters were worse, but this is more about the potential than the actual outcome. Also, look up 'whataboutism'.

I'm with Vuzman on this btw

Well, some facts would be helpful. The article is solely baaed on the testimony of this Robert Gale, who is apparently lying?

I can accept 1 and 2 with some sources.

3 and 4 I completely agree with.
Vuzman on July 03 2019 23:10:14
I don't need sources for 2, I remember it...

I think I misremembered 1. I glanced through the podcast where they talked about this and it was based on research and Lyudmila's own account of what her husband looked like. So, AFAICT, no actual photos.

Anyway, I recommend listening to the companion podcast (just called The Chernobyl Podcast), where the creator of the series details how the series was created, and which liberties they took, and why.

I barely remember where I was today, so good on you smiley

I listened to several episodes of the podcast - very interesting.
