How We Survive

How do you live in a place that wasn’t meant for development? And should we even try? The climate crisis is here, and we’re looking for solutions.


Miami is one of the most vulnerable coastal cities in the world. Because of rising seas and stronger hurricanes, whole neighborhoods could be submerged by 2100. Or sooner.


Billions of dollars are pouring into the region to help it adapt to hotter temperatures, fierce storms and rising waters. But will it be enough?


Join host Amy Scott on this season of “How We Survive” as she digs into how South Florida can adapt to remain as livable as possible. The podcast explores how the insurance industry  determines where people live, and the concept of “managed retreat,” which relocates entire communities from unlivable places.
