Doing Disasters Differently

The Podcast

Disasters are changing. We need to change too. That’s why we’ve launched Doing Disasters Differently as a podcast so that anyone (and everyone) can listen to real-life experiences and join the conversation towards building resilience to all types of disasters.

Hosted by Renae Hanvin, founder of corporate2community, the podcast invites disaster experts from businesses, communities, governments and non-profits to chat about what we need to think and do differently when it comes to before, during and after disasters.

Doing Disasters Differently: The Podcast is available from your favourite podcast provider.
