We're excited to bring you Season 2 of the Living With Fire Podcast. Here's a little preview of what to expect.
Hi, welcome back to the living with fire podcast. I'm your host Megan Kay Outreach Coordinator for the living with Fire Program at the University of Nevada Reno extension. And I am very excited to get to announce that we are working on season two of our podcast and are about to start releasing some new episodes. So I wanted to give you a little preview and talk about what to expect on season two of the living with fire podcast.When fires occur, we don't want to develop tools and technologies just like we can respond to them. That's just hard to do. Right? We need to treat this thing at just a much larger scale because the burns are big, and they're going to be continually into a continuing to occur.For a lot of people in our area,especially after the last two years, which have been weeks and weeks and weeks of smoke there was almost like a trauma response to the smoke in the air and just like oh, okay, here we go again.So it's not about, oh, we're gonna have to serve water that doesn't meet standards. No,that's never going to happen.It's about mitigating because you can have impacts and it would create potentially increased treatment costs.Humans are a part of our ecosystems, and they always have been and we've always been land tenders and stewards of the land through 1000s of years.This season on the podcast, we wanted to tell a broader story of what it means to live with wildfire. So we are exploring some topics that are not necessarily related to wildfire itself, but impacts of wildfire that are more under the surface,or maybe go unseen so far this season. We've already talked to some experts about wildfire,smoke, trauma, watershed management, mental health, and more. I'm very excited to share these stories with you.
