This week marks the one-year anniversary of the Getting Through It podcast where Dr. Lucy Jones shares her insights and perspective on the chaotic world around us, co-hosted by community resilience expert John Bwarie. Since its premiere on June 14, 2020, the podcast has released an episode every week and garnered over 76,000 downloads. In these episodes, Dr. Jones explains 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 the pandemic to other disasters that affect people, as well as the history of science and big disasters and how through understanding why, we are more successful at “getting through it.”
Episode highlights from the year include exploring communication practices during the COVID-19 pandemic, why you feel what you feel during an earthquake, and a four part series on why earthquake prediction is currently — and likely forever — impossible. In this week’s episode, Dr. Jones and John discuss water, water pipes, and water storage in an earthquake.
