Introduction to Catastrophic Calamities

Catastrophic Calamities is the new podcast from Pulpular Media, telling the stories of both famous and forgotten tragedies of the 19th and 20th centuries (with the occasional foray further back), the communities and people whose lives they changed forever. Some are natural disasters, some caused by people, some are just an unlucky confluence of both.  All of them, deserve to be remembered. Listener suggestions are welcome!
