Scary

I live in Seattle so this is definitely relevant. I feel totally unprepared for any major earthquake we’ll have, but this is definitely giving me a lot to think about and helping me get my mind wrapped around what will happen.

Great host

Very interesting documentary with good interviews and a nice pace.

Research-backed warnings

It has what-if disasters scenarios well designed after the experiences of Christchurch in 2011. The city's official line is too confident: the schools aren't ready; 72hrs of supplies is not enough; the building codes, though good enough to get us through the "big one", aren't good enough to assure we have a building safe to re-enter after it hits.
The podcast is not intending to scare but to inform. I wish everyone on the southwest coast of BC would listen.
