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 34: Hurricane Harvey in Progress
As the devastation in Southeast Texas and Louisiana continues to unfold, we wanted to capture the many ideas, opinions, and thoughts that have been circulating around on social media from both the meteorology community and the public. From the decision to evacuate to the innovative use of social media during this event, Castle and Minh examine these ideas to inform people about the nuances in decision-making and also the challenges that many people face in the coming months and years. It is not our intention to be disrespectful to the victims of Harvey. We want to take this opportunity to talk about ideas that certainly need to be discussed while acknowledging that we can help people affected by the storm.
