    Surviving the Marshall Fire

    Guest: Bob Henson




    Introduction: On December 30, 2021, The Marshall Fire ripped through suburban neighborhoods in the Denver-Boulder metropolitan area - spread by high winds and fueled by months of drought. The wildfire left two people presumed dead, burned more than 6000 acres and destroyed more than 1000 homes.  Bob Henson is one of several atmospheric scientists who call that area near Boulder, Colorado home.  He joins us today to talk about the fire on this edition of Weather Geeks.

    The American Meteorological Society has been a collective of meteorologists and a fixture in the professional community since its foundation in 1919. Since then, numerous achievements in the field have taken us through the discovery of the radar, the satellite era, and the constant advancement in atmospheric modeling. The AMS has been there throughout this technological journey. Since 2004, Dr. Keith Seitter has been the Executive Director of the AMS and almost 20 years later, he is retiring from the organization. He’s here joining us today to reflect on his time with the Society; so please welcome, Dr. Keith Seitter!

Worth your time!!

Concise, informative, and interesting. I have a basic understanding of weather (BA in geography), but my interest is now just a hobby so I really enjoy quality podcasts on weather— so far, this is the only quality weather pod I’ve found. Keep up the great work!

Interesting and engaging!

I am not a weather geek, but am casually interested in science, and these interviews always have something for me. It’s interesting to get a peek into this industry/subculture, too.

I second the complaints about the audio quality, though. Just getting a quality microphone for the host would be a big improvement, I think.

I would enjoy this podcast more if the audio quality were improved
