PODCAST / LINKS. The best podcast and on-line resource for disaster preparedness that I have seen in 10 years of being CERT, and 5 years being a CERT trainer (community emergency response team). Warning, the podcast is graphic and may make you uncomfortable. Making the podcast made the host, Jacob Margolis, uncomfortable, too. Follow he and his family as they come up with a major earthquake disaster plan.
There’s a 50 percent chance that some time in the next 30 years, Southern California will be crippled by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. It’ll take less than two minutes for more than 10 million people to lose water, power, internet. Host Jacob Margolis and Producer Misha Euceph go on a journey to understand what the disaster means for Los Angeles, the U.S. and the world.
Follow along here to find out what people are doing to prepare and what it will take to survive.
The Big One Is Coming
If Los Angeles was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake would you be ready? Scientists say The Big One is coming and when it hits it’ll take under two minutes for more than 10 million Southern Californians to lose water, power, and a sense of security.

A polar bear killer, a Sputnik-inspired scientist, a man who uses the past to see the future and seismologist Lucy Jones. What do they all have in common? Without them, we wouldn’t understand the what, when, why and how of the big one.
