In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we go on a bumpy ride with the Hurricane Hunters, the government’s team of scientists who fly into storms so the rest of us can have accurate info and research about storm weather. Our guide is Nick Underwood, of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
