Lance Armstrong, Australia Brushfires & Flu Epidemic Highlight The Crisis Show

Episode #24 of The Crisis Show, recorded on January 16, 2013, was a discussion about crisis management/crisis communications issues related to brushfires in Australia, the flu epidemic in the United States and the continuing legal/PR fiasco surrounding Lance Armstrong.

Host Rich Klein was joined by Jane Jordan-Meier, a crisis management expert, and Eric Neitzel, a national public information officer and trainer of first responders on communications, including social media. Former federal prosecutor Richard Cutler, an avid cyclist and triathlete, helped us analyze the Lance Armstrong story.
