"Quakeland: On the Road to America's Next Devastating Earthquake" by Kathryn Miles


It’s not just the West Coast that should be worried about the potential devastation of an earthquake.  Acclaimed science journalist Kathryn Miles explains how humans have been making enormous changes to subterranean America, and why these could induce an earthquake in places we have

Guest: Kathryn Miles, is the author of Superstorm: Nine Days Inside Hurricane Sandy.

Jennifer walked into her college radio station as a 17-year-old freshman and never looked back. Even though she was terrified of the microphone back then — and spoke into it as little as possible — she loved the studio, the atmosphere and, most of all, the people who work in broadcasting. She was hooked. Decades later, she’s back behind the radio microphone hosting Maine Public Radio’s flagship talk program, Maine Calling. She’s not afraid of the mic anymore, but still loves the bright, eclectic people she gets to work with every day.
