Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode, Daniel Aldrich (@DanielPAldrich) returns to the podcast to discuss his new book, Black Wave: How Networks and Governance Shaped Japan’s 3/11 Disasters. We go deeper on social ties and how they impact disaster response and recovery, and why it matters beyond the disasters in Japan.
