About the Podcast 

Each episode of Segal's "Crisis Ahead" podcast examines how organizations and individuals in the news are dealing with crisis situations and the lessons to be learned from their successes and failures. The podcast is based on Segal's new book on crisis management — "Crisis Ahead: 101 Ways to Prepare for and Bounce Back from Disasters, Scandals, and Other Emergencies" (Nicholas Brealey).
