In this episode, our very own volcano expert, Meagan, talks about what occurred during the infamous eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 CE. We discuss what is left of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, as well as what makes them spooky. We also dive into supervolcanoes, including how much of a threat they really pose to the survival of the human race and some spooky stories about the biggest eruptions that humans (or at least our ancestors) have witnessed.
