Emergency Management is a Feminist Issue


Natalia interviews Dr. Samantha Montano, disasterologist and professor at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy about her newest book DISASTEROLOGY: Dispatches from the Frontlines of the Climate Crisis. They discuss why emergency management, something traditionally seen as “wonky” is actually hella feminist, how to battle fatigue when hearing the news, why flood plain maps are important and we ask the question, is there such a thing as a natural disaster?
