Remember & Prepare Podcast

In San Francisco Is In Ashes #8, the last episode in this series, we remember the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake Click here to learn about third-party website links and provide some concrete advice for preparedness today. The Loma Prieta quake resonates personally with many Bay area residents. It is one of those “where were you when…” questions, like when John F. Kennedy Jr. was shot, or when the World Trade Center Towers were bombed. I was not living in the Bay area at the time, so I found it really interesting to hear our Museum visitors talk about their personal experiences, and recall vividly how the quake affected them.

Some of the individuals I spoke with in the Museum said they were indeed prepared if and when another earthquake hits, but many – like the vast majority of Bay area residents – are not. We think it just won’t happen, or somehow it won’t affect us. History, in this case 17 year old and not 100 year old history, tells us that it’s highly unlikely for this to be true. So my hope is that listening to some of the concrete steps mentioned in the podcast will inspire you to go out and even do just one thing to better protect your home and yourself. If you don’t live in an earthquake prone area, think about what else you may present a threat that you can prepare for today. Now that I’m not focusing so much on podcasts, I’m going to give preparedness some thought – AND some action!

As a self-admitted neophyte when it came to iPods Click here to learn about third-party website links up until just this January, I have learned a lot during this pilot project. There are a lot of people that helped make this podcast happen, and they each deserve some recognition. In prepping for this project, I researched what was out there in podcast-land and found some really great podcasts. So now when I pick up my little i-pod mini, I have a full selection of podcasts for my listening pleasure. Some are about Museums and history, and some are just purely for fun. I hope this podcast series has been both interesting and entertaining for listeners. If you have any comments now that the series has wrapped up, please send them on!
