Ep. 23Four Decades of Fire, With Sue Husari (and Guest Host Zeke Lunder)

Sue, middle, with two crewmembers while working with the Lassen Hotshots in 1976.

This episode’s guest, Sue Husari, went from pounding dirt as the first woman to work for the Lassen Hotshots in 1976 to an eventual role as the Fire Management Officer for the Pacific West Region of the National Park Service, from which she retired in 2012. In between, she saw fundamental changes not only in how fires burn but in how we fight them. She provides some truly invaluable perspective in this episode, which is guest hosted by our friend Zeke Lunder from The Lookout, an online project that aims to contextualize wildfire information through storytelling and digital media.
