How Malibu surfers are fighting wildfires

Five years ago, a group of Malibu surfers came face-to-face with a devastating California wildfire.

As first responders were overwhelmed by the flames, these neighbors banded together to save people’s homes and got supplies to those in need.

Now they’ve created a new kind of model to help fight wildfires. A new podcast follows this group of misfits who survived a deadly wildfire and are now working to change how communities fight wildfires.

Adriana Cargill, the creator of the "Sandcastles" podcast joined Idaho Matters to talk more.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
