By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Between 1951 and 1992, the US Government tested 928 nuclear bombs in the Nevada desert, and Utah and its unsuspecting residents were downwind. Over time, scientists started to make connections between incidents of cancer and contamination from the fallout of those tests. Utah writer Mary Dickson has created a new play that looks at the human consequence of nuclear testing, and it's a very personal story. Mary Dickson joins Doug to talk about her own family's experience and about being "Exposed."
