V.I.A. Podcast Ep. 34: How Vancouver can prepare for “The Big One”


This week on the V.I.A. Podcast we’re taking a dip into the pool of 30+ awesome episodes in our archives to bring you a treat. No, it’s not a popsicle (though in this heat wave that sounds pretty great). It’s our excellent chat from January 2018 with CBC Vancouver’s Johanna Wagstaffe on the topic of earthquake preparedness.

Johanna Wagstaffe on the V.I.A. Podcast

Wagstaffe is a science reporter, meteorologist, seismologist, and author of a children’s book about earthquakes, Fault Lines. We talked about her book, the earthquake podcast she hosted, if and how we can be prepared for the big quake that’s on the horizon, and more. Because, oh, yeah, Vancouver: the big one IS coming.
