About This Show
WeatherHype is a podcast started by two besties who love weather and its connections to people every single day. We wanted to provide an avenue where we could talk about important weather-related stories and educate listeners in a very informal, unstructured way, all while getting a little side-tracked and having some fun too!

Episode 32: Weather on the Go!
On Episode 32, Minh and Castle discuss new research into how the communication landscape is changing for where people acquire weather forecast information. Previous studies have shown that local television was the dominant source, but with more and more people turning to smartphones, a new study highlights the use of smartphone apps among the younger generation. Also, with the recent Fourth of July holiday, some municipalities in the country decided to go on with their firework displays, even with extremely dry conditions. We discuss that and how fireworks affect air quality. And of course, we have our songs of the week and highlight causes for our "Giving Back" campaign.
