CSR Jan 20 2022

In this episode Lynn and John’s guests are (01:32) Creek Stewart author of THE DISASTER-READY HOME: A Step-by-Step Emergency Preparedness Manual for Sheltering in Place and (28:53) Senior editor at Scientific American, Josh Fischman.

Cool Science Radio's guests include:

Weather Channel host, Creek Stewart. Also a best-selling author and disaster expert, Stewart joins the show and discusses emergency preparedness and his book THE DISASTER-READY HOME: A Step-by-Step Emergency Preparedness Manual for Sheltering in Place. He calls it an inevitability for all of us.

Then, Senior editor at Scientific American, Josh Fischman talks with John and Lynn. It’s more important than ever to learn the intricacies of current science with Covid -19--what’s new with omicron, what’s the holdup with new vaccines, and when’s the right time to use a rapid test—if you can find one. Josh shares his insight into these questions and more.

John's curiosity with science and technology began at the age of 7 with the country's space program. With a subscription his parents gave him to Popular Science and Popular Mechanics along with other periodicals and Walter Cronkite's evening broadcast he studied everything space. He followed the lives of America's test pilots and astronauts who piloted Mercury, Gemini and Apollo spacecraft. His curiosity in how things were built led him to dismantling the family's window fan, toaster and lawnmower. Taking apart things was easy. Putting them back together, well, not so much. John grew up in New York state and Massachusetts with 2 brothers and 2 sisters. He received a BA in Economics and Sociology from the University of Maryland.
