BECAUSE the children are our future - Mitch and Andrew talk Hurricanes Katrina, Sandy and the long term effects of disasters on children and families with David Abramson, the founding director of NYU's Program on Population Impact, Recovery, and Resiliency (PIR2). Warning: It's not pretty. On the bright side: How do you get teenagers involved with disaster recovery? Can Mitch even get his own daughter to talk to him about disasters? Also, where were you when you heard John Lennon died? Can starving actors turn the tide on hurricane evacuation? And we get fan mail from Canada!
Get the Dukes. No, really, get 'em!

Episode 13 FTW!!
Tuesday, May 5, 2015
Mitch and Andrew drink Shandies and break down all things tech+disaster with Brandon Greenberg of @disasternet. You may already have had your last avocado, thousands of people are sifting through pictures of Nepal right now, and Facebook urges you to check yourself before you wreck yourself with Safety Check. All this, the worst musical interludes of any podcast ever recorded, and even more in what may be the deepest episode of the Dukes of Hazards so far (which may not be saying much).

In this episode, special guest Jack Herrmann joins Mitch and Andrew for a compelling hour that looks at the response characteristics of the Nepal earthquake (including Facebook's new status check), why we suck at cybersecurity and the curious case of the radioative sand in Tokyo. Then, in a special segment, we look at Jack's own experiences coordinating mental health relief after 9/11. Plus, we answer Scott North's questions! All on Dukes of Hazards: The Emergency Management Podcast. Plus: Mitch is like 3/10s funny, it turns out.

Mitch's old (er, youthful) compadre Mark O'Neill comes on the show to discuss the historic Florida hurricane season of 2004. Plus, megacyclone Pam hits Vanuatu, the iWatch tracks us all, you have to believe in climate change to get FEMA money (no word on whether humans had to cause it), and it turns out sometimes you CAN take an elevator in a fire. Who knew? Plus, we tease a future tease of a Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson movie.

The Dukes break down the Lac Magantic train disaster (although Mitch can't pronounce it) and compare it to the recent West Virginia train derailment. Plus, Austin in 1960 may be better at civil defense than we are and it turns out Ebola is stll happening. Not to mention the Dukes of Hazards review of The Last Man on Earth! All that plus the one place in the USA you are most likely to die from zombies.
