This unique podcast took the listener on a journey through the aftermath of an earthquake - where do you go? Where are your kids? Can you get money? How should you prepare for all of these things? I don't live in an earthquake-prone area but having lived through Hurricane Harvey I know most people in the world could be impacted by a natural disaster at some point, and we are definitely not prepared. We're so reliant on the internet and phones. I loved that each episode ended with real tips to get yourself earthquake ready.
Excellent reporting done in a way that feels like a rich story vs. a dry lesson. Stellar production values, and I particularly like the angle of looking at the (inevitable?) event from various angles: The Science, Economy, Buildings, etc.
