Our first guest-hosted (an in-person) episode is live! In this episode, Zeke Lunder of “The Lookout” cameos as host of Life with Fire, and sits down with fire researchers Yana Valochovic and Eric Knapp at his office in Chico, CA. They spoke about Valochovic and Knapp’s research on the Camp Fire, which deeply impacted the town of Paradise, CA three years ago this week. Their research explores how homes are arranged and built, and how these factors can impact their susceptibility to ignition during wildfires. This is an essential conversation on home resilience, defensible space and what factors contribute to home ignitions in wildfires. Call it “Building in The WUI 101,” if you will, but you won’t want to miss the invaluable insight, tips and lessons learned from Knapp and Valochovic’s extensive research and work in the aftermath of the Camp Fire.
