Music School: UCLA Professor Jessica Schwartz on Nuclear Resonance in the Marshall Islands

We interview Jessica Schwartz, UCLA's professor of punk.

After World War II, the United States tested 67 nuclear weapons in the Marshall Islands. Vaporized land, radioactive fruit, babies born without limbs: life sounded exactly like science fiction.

The iconic mushroom cloud continues to resonate today. In her upcoming book, Jessica argues that music gives a powerful voice to Marshallese people who refuse to be silenced.
