BCPcast Episode 5 - Total Meltdowns and the Emergency Planner's Paradox
Episode 5 of the BCPcast investigates what happens when carefully laid, and well-rehearsed plans collide with reality. This one is about big disasters, their effects, and the positives, if any, that can come out of them. We also confront the uncomfortable paradox that many emergency planners grapple with throughout their careers - that disasters are inherently unknowable, and no amount of planning or speculation can truly emulate the chaos of real disruption. The result is an uncomfortable double bind: you hope the worst never happens, but it's the only time your plans truly get tested.
