Today I consulted on a program to air on History Channel Canada and Discovery Channel UK covering the weird and the wild. The program's researcher was interested in learning more about fringe claims that nuclear bombs were used in prehistoric India after reading my eBook Ancient Atom Bombs? We had a nice conversation about the science behind the claims and the scholarly malpractice through which genuine ancient Sanskrit texts were systematically altered to make them seem like they told about nuclear weaponry. I will keep you posted if more comes of this.
I am an author and researcher focusing on pop culture, science, and history. Bylines: New Republic, Slate, etc. There's more about me in the About Jason tab.
