When Damien Cave arrived in Sydney from the US with his young family to establish The New York Times’ Australian bureau, life near the ocean brought ideas and questions at odds with their American mindset that risk was a matter of individual choices. Perhaps risk could be managed together, by communities. Rather than being eliminated or romanticised, risk might instead be respected and even embraced. So, Damien set out to understand how our current attitude to risk developed – and why it’s not necessarily good for us. Join Damien as he discusses Into the Rip, a book that will change how you think about facing the world’s hazards.
