The Dr. Lucy Jones Center is launching a new, weekly podcast called Getting Through It in June 2020 where Dr. Jones will sit down to share her insights and perspective on the chaotic world around us. Dr. Jones will share how the world works, why you might feel the way you do about a particular disaster, and how you can manage the chaos around you that is real life. The topics range from earthquakes to other disasters that affect people, as well as the history of science and big disasters, and how through understanding why, we are more able to manage it and be more successful at “getting through it.”
While launching this podcast, the Jones Center is also launching a Patreon page where supporters can contribute to the Center and get early access and other perks for being a monthly supporter.
Getting Through It is co-hosted with community resilience expert and Center Deputy Director John Bwarie. The duo were co-creators of The Great Shake-Out and worked to create sweeping policy changes in seismic safety in the City of Los Angeles and dozens of other communities across California. For Caltech in 2019, Dr. Jones and John developed and co-led the Center’s Science Activation workshop and training program.
You can access the latest podcasts on the Getting Through It page and the full archive is available for supporters.
