A Furious Sky with Eric Jay Dolin

With the end of summer comes the arrival of hurricane season for the southern United States and East Coast. Today, we await their arrival through radar and satellite imagery, watch their ferocity on television, and expect the government to assist with their clean up. All of these things are relatively new in the long history of hurricanes.

Today, I am joined by historian Eric Jay Dolin to discuss the history behind hurricanes and our ever-changing efforts to understand them. Eric is the bestselling author of numerous books and a returning guest on the podcast, and in this episode he is going to talk to us about his newest book "A Furious Sky: The Five-Hundred Year History of America's Hurricanes." He and I will discuss some of the earliest encounters with hurricanes in the New World, the early scientists who studied them, and some of the most notable hurricanes to strike the United States.
