Yesterday a 7.5 magnitude earthquake hit Ecuador, part of the “rim of fire” that circles the Pacific (but certainly not pacified) ocean. There’s no season for earthquakes like there are for hurricanes, and you can’t see an earthquake coming like you could a tornado. So how do you survive one? Joe and Amy Alton talk about strategies that will give you the best chance.

Also, Dr. Joe Alton finishes his series on radiation events with a discussion of decontamination procedures, treatments for radiation sickness, and how to remove radioactive elements from drinking water.

Plus, the Altons talk about their latest book “Alton’s Antibiotics and Infectious Disease: The Layman’s Guide to Available Antibacterials in Austere Settings“…
