EP 622 Warning: The Next Disaster is Just Ahead

 Whether it’s the climate crisis arriving, a terrorist attacking or a mass shooter on a rampage, it seems that disasters are becoming more frequent. In her new book, “The Devil Never Sleeps”, Juliette Kayyem, an international leader in crisis management, disaster response and homeland security, explains why we all must become disaster responders on the first line of defense in these times. She offers a new framework to anticipate the many forms the “devil’s” appearance may take and our role in blunting the impact. When we are’ left ‘of the boom we must prepare so that when we are’ right’ of the boom we minimize the consequences of a storm, madman or organized threat. We discuss a range of disasters including responses that are so vivid in regards to the COVID 19 pandemic.
