About Catastrophic Calamities

Catastrophic Calamities is a twice-monthly 60-minute podcast telling the stories of famous and forgotten tragedies of the 19th and 20th centuries, with the occasional forays reaching further back in history. 

Host Susan Ferman, a witness to the tragic 1994 Northridge earthquake (Episode 1), focuses on  the communities and people whose lives were changed forever by tragic circumstances beyond their control. Some episodes will cover natural disasters, some that were caused by people, some just an unlucky confluence of both.  All of them, deserve to be remembered. 

Catastrophic Calamities is a production of Pulpular Media.


Executive Producer is Richard O Jones, producer and host of the podcast True Crime Historian.


Episodes will be released on the second and last Tuesday of each month.
