Episode 265 - Lucy Jones

In this episode of Talk Nerdy, Cara sits down with Dr. Lucy Jones, founder of the Dr. Lucy Jones Center for Science and Society and author of the new book, “The Big Ones: How Natural Disasters Have Shaped Us (and What We Can Do About Them)”. They just so happened to record on the morning of July 5, 2019, between the magnitude 6.4 foreshock on July 4 and the magnitude 7.1 earthquake on July 5, 2019 in southern California. They discuss earthquake safety, seismology, and the psychological biases that prevent us from accurate risk assessment. Follow Lucy: @DrLucyJones.
