Remembering the Great Alaskan Earthquake

What one woman reporter did for Anchorage.

by Eric Holdeman / May 26, 2020

You might call this a human interest story, but I listened to it for a number of reasons: 

  1. First-hand accounts on what happened -- what people were thinking
  2. How just one person, with the right tools, can make a huge difference
  3. Volunteers pitching in where and when they can
  4. The role of the family in a disaster --  are they safe?
  5. The need for information and connections in a disaster
  6. Sacrificial service in a disaster

All of these things are in this The Daily Podcast, Genie Chance and the Great Alaska Earthquake.

I recommend it for your listening.
