Kurt Andersen and the writer Sebastian Junger talk about why our culture is drawn to the menace and beauty of natural disaster.

His most recent book, Fire, is a collection of stories from various dangerous journalism assignments, ranging from battle in Afghanistan to fire fighting in the American northwest.
