The Aftermath: Tangiwai Train Disaster

On this week’s Aftermath, Rebecca speaks with guest expert Janine Krippner about the Tangiwai Train Disaster. A Physical Volcanologist from New Zealand, Janine hosts the podcast Popular Volcanics and worked as a Contract Scientist for the Smithsonian Institutions Volcanologist Program. Needless to say, she has a wealth of knowledge to share about Volcanoes. Not to mention the newest natural phenomenon that’s soared straight to the top of The Alarmists list of major anxieties: Lahars! Producer Clayton Early and Fact Checker Chris Smith stop by to debrief.
