George Kourounis is an extreme storm chaser and star of “Angry Planet.”
He tells the story of chasing a 12,500 foot wide tornado (2.5 miles) with swirling winds of 200 MPH, and how he lost his dear friends in the chase. George stopped by the show to talk to us about climate change and chasing extreme weather, and about his recent visit to the coldest continuously inhabited place on the planet.
His show, “Angry Planet” airs Fridays at 10PM on Pivot. Enjoy it, Jake
