The Blackbird of Chernobyl

3 years ago

On this week's show, we'll be discussing the "blackbird of Chernobyl" and sharing a grim anniversary. 35 years ago today (April 26), an explosion at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, in the northern region of Soviet Ukraine, led to the worst nuclear disaster in history. The Chernobyl accident, as it is called,  put 400 times more radioactive material into the Earth's atmosphere than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.

With such a landscape of human and environmental destruction, it only makes sense that the paranormal would find a home within this abandoned, condemned and yes, haunted place where nobody lives.

The Q Files is a personal, purposeful, paranormal podcast about the highly strange and weirdly unknown. Join us on our queer adventures as we explore the people, places, and phenomena, outside popular consciousness.

The documentary series features astonishing stories about the paranormal, the supernatural, occulture, forgotten history, and the strange.
