About This Show
WeatherHype is a podcast about weather, climate, and how it affects you. It is hosted 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 45: Crisis Communication of Volcanic Proportions (w/ Dr. Janine Krippner)
1 day ago
In the last two weeks, the eruption of Kīlauea, a shield volcano on the Big Island of Hawai'i, has forced roughly 2,000 residents to evacuate, destroyed around 40 structures, and even caused several serious injuries. We are joined by Dr. Janine Krippner to explore the vast world of volcanology. While the Kīlauea event has been devastating, it is our hope that it can bring hazard communities together to learn from one another. Therefore, this podcast is a first step toward learning about the similarities and differences between the volcanology and meteorological communities. Stay tuned because we are talking all about volcanoes, social media, and risk communication on this new episode of Weather Hype!Thanks to Jared Smith from the Carolina Weather Group Podcast for his help with this episode's Weather Ready Nation preparedness message for Spring weather.
