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 19: December Potpourri

On Episode 19, Castle and Minh discuss an article by Meteorologist James Spann (ABC 33/40 - Birmingham and WeatherBrains Podcast), where he writes about the many frustrations relating to his viewers' lack of geographical awareness and his interactions with social media negativity. We also look at the National Weather Service - Birmingham's Facebook post from late November that caught the attention of many folks on "Weather Twitter." The post generated a lot of buzz for its confrontational and rant-like tone. We debate on what the best practices are for using social media as a tool to promote preparedness and education. And, we discuss the Southeast drought and wildfires that ravaged Eastern Tennessee, including the deadly Gatlinburg fires. We haven't had a chance to talk with one another for quite some time, so we do a little bit of catching up. That, the usual shenanigans, and our songs of the week are coming your way.
