Today it's just us - your hosts Jason (@vonmeding) and Ksenia (@KsChmutina) - to talk about our 2 years of work investigating the expression "natural disaster" in academic literature.
We reflect on our new paper, A Dilemma of Language: "Natural Disasters" in Academic Literature, and talk more broadly about the importance of language in influencing how people understand risk and how they behave towards it.
Who is served by disasters being understood as natural? Is it actually harmful?
