amerinz_podcast_150x150Today provided a good example of the realities of life in the Pacific: It’s a vast geologically active area, and people ignore that at their peril.

This is also school holiday time in New Zealand, and I talk a little about that, as well some technical issues that delayed my recent podcasts. Comments next studio podcast.
