S1E12 - Disaster Myths

This week we are joined by Dr Samantha Montano to talk about disaster myths. Samantha is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Management & Disaster Science at University of Nebraska Omaha.

In this episode we discuss what it is to be a "disasterologist" and what kind of myths and other destructive disaster narratives that she has dealt with in her work across research, emergency management practice and grassroots community activism. 

Of course, the idea that disasters are "natural" features, as you might expect!
