S1 E20: Hearing Hiroshima (2020 REBROADCAST)

August 3, 2020


2020 REBROADCAST: The word “Hiroshima” may bring to mind a black-and-white image of a mushroom cloud. It’s easy to forget that it’s an actual city with a million people and a popular baseball team. How did the cataclysm of 1945 reverberate in the place where it happened?

Hearing Hiroshima is a production of Minnesota Public Radio, from American Public Media.

    A thoughtfully composed and significant piece toward understanding a sensitive and controversial event. Greatly appreciated.

    My son recommended 3 episodes,

    “Seeing White”


    “The Country ….Yet”

    Is this from 1 season and, If so, which one?

      Those are our three series, which consist of multiple episodes each. They are Season 2, Season 3, and Season 4, respectively. (Season 4 is still ongoing — episodes release every other wednesday.)

    Just wanted to let you know Hiroshima is in Honshu Island, not in Kyushu as the host mentioned in introduction. I used to live in Hiroshima as a child. Thank you for reposting this.

      Yeah I came to say the same thing. He must have been thinking of Nagasaki?

  4. This was great. Thank you. Important messages that shouldn’t be forgotten.
