The Response: Occupy Sandy – Making Contact Radio

This week, we explore the remarkable communities that arise in the aftermath of natural disasters; namely, Hurricane Sandy, and its impact on the Rockaway Peninsula. It’s a story about unlikely friendships, radical recovery efforts, and disaster collectivism.

The Response documentary podcast series is part of the “Stories to Action” project, a collaboration between Shareable, Post Carbon Institute, Transition US, Upstream Podcast, and NewStories.
