When was this Podcast recorded? The line "a storm of the magnitude of Katrina is unlikely to form anytime soon" I hope that this was recorded before a category 5 made landfall in October of 2018.

i didn't like that there were 4 different presenters. they each read like one sentence and went around the table over and over again. they should have broken it up into 4 big parts to avoid switching too much
