The St. Pierre Volcanic Bio-Swarm of 1902 | Episode 2
Play • 41 min
This episode is the disaster equivalent of one of those trick birthday candles that just won’t blow out. So if the idea of close, intimate contact with insects, arachnids and reptiles bothers you, today’s episode will bother you. A lot.
In this episode you will hear-tell of a plague of terror being cleared away by cleansing mercy of a volcano and people voluntarily jumping into boiling water, on purpose, because it was the best of all available options.
So dear listeners, would you rather: wear a coat of panicked insects and snakes or run with arms outstretched into the face a 1000 F pyroclastic flow?
