We Have Concerns

Plan for the Worst and Let a Bear in Your House

Episode Summary

Entire teams of people spend their days imagining what might happen in a crisis to ensure we can be better prepared for when the worst really does happen. Jeff and Anthony discuss their methodology and try to decide if it is a job they could do. Then, it turns out, in the case of endangered predators, the problem isn't the wild bear wandering through town, it's the humans not knowing what to do. And one study suggests we should all just adapt to letting bears into our lives - for at least 14 years. Anthony and Jeff examine this notion, and try to figure out if it worth it to make room for the grizzlies.
