Good episode? Give it some love!
In Episode 5, we get out of domestic disaster response and take a deep dive into the causes, effects and structures for managing international disasters. Dr. Uzma Alam (@UzmaAlam3) joins us to talk about her experience responding to disasters like the Ebola crisis, and how geopolitics can be its own force of nature in creating international disasters. International journalist Antony Loewenstein (@AntLoewenstein) then joins us as we talk about his book, and soon to be documentary, Disaster Capitalism, and how there is often more incentive for managing a crisis rather than resolving it. We also talk about the role of international institutions, nation-state, for-profit and non-profit actors as well as the communities themselves.
