How do bridges work? Why don’t you get an alert before earthquakes? How can you repair your old wood home? This podcast is for everyone curious about the structures you live in, work in, and drive across. Co-hosted by two structural engineers, Elide Pantoli and Andrew Martinez.
Episode 04: Land Reclamation
If you live in the Bay Area, you’ve probably heard this term at some point, but land reclamation is not just relevant to the Bay Area. We reached out to Cary Ronan, an experienced geotechnical engineer, to help explain what land reclamation is and how it works.

We talk with Bob DeGroot and learn about ShakeAlert, the USGS' earthquake early warning system.
Episode 2: Is Your Stuff Earthquake Ready?
In the second episode of The Deconstructed Podcast, our amazing hosts, Elide and Andrew, talk to a wood construction expert, Kelly Cobeen, about something else that can go wrong in the typical home during an earthquake. Let’s talk about “nonstructural components”.
Episode 1: Can my wood home survive an earthquake?
In this episode of The Deconstructed Podcast we take a look at wood homes and how they perform during earthquakes. Kelly Cobeen, a structural engineer with over 30 years of experience and an expert on the topic, joins us and explains what we should expect when the shaking starts. This is part one of a two part series on the effects of earthquakes on single family homes. Be sure to subscribe to the podcast so you can hear part two as soon as it’s available.
