Warnings, Warnings Everywhere

Description

After a disaster happens, we want to know whether something could have been done to avoid it. Did anyone see this coming? Many times, the answer is yes. So why didn't the warnings lead to action? This week, we revisit a favorite 2018 episode about the psychology of warnings. We visit a smelly Alaskan tunnel, hear about a gory (and fictional) murder plot, and even listen to some ABBA.

Interesting episode! The part about how we listen to in-groups left me wondering how we square issues of priveledge with who's warnings we actually listen to? Many times it's not the "in crowd" that is sounding the alarm
