Coming Soon: This is How We Die

This is how we die, a podcast about cities, infrastructure, natural disasters and how you can survive. Natural disasters are getting stronger, and the built environment that makes our lives better day to day also increases our risk. Each episode in S1 we will explore a different city and what "big one" they should be most concerned about--and provide some tips on how to survive! Hosted by Meghan and Megan--two emergency management and built environment experts who've had an awful lot of wine.
