EPISODE 1 – There’s a 30% chance… we’re starting a podcast.
In the premiere episode, Megan and David explain how their fear of storms became a fascination that led them to become meteorologists. Plus, they talk about their favorite food from the Lowcountry and the seemingly normal lives in which they live.
EPISODE 2 – There’s a 30% chance… it’s probably made up.
This week’s episode covers the major weather movies we watch, including the blockbusters Twister, The Day After Tomorrow… and yep you guessed it, Sharknado. Fun and far fetched, Megan and David break down what went right and what is actually made up in these Hollywood movies. Can you guess which one left Megan scared as a kid?
EPISODE 3 – There’s a 30% Chance… We’re probably annoyed
In the 3rd episode of There’s a 30% Chance, Megan and David can’t EVEN. They’re talking about meteorologists’ biggest pet peeves. EVEN if they wanted to control the weather, they can’t. They EVEN talk to Meteorologist Josh Marthers about his biggest pet peeve. We bet you can’t EVEN guess what it is… but you won’t be able to unsee it. Are you picking up what we’re putting down?
EPISODE 4 – There’s a 30% Chance… We weathered that storm

EPISODE 8 – There’s a 30% Chance… it’s Greek to me
WHO comes up with those tongue twister hurricane name? And WHO is responsible for retiring them? And WHERE did the Greek alphabet go? Megan and David work their way through these questions and try their hand at the new list of names in this week’s episode.
EPISODE 9 – There’s a 30% Chance… we’re sneezin’ for a reason
I’m sneezin’, you’re sneezin’, we’re all sneezin’. It’s that time of year, Lowcountry, the pollening. If your car is now a lovely, bright yellow, you are not alone…
EPISODE 10 – There’s a 30% Chance… you’re probably distracted
Somebody call the podcast police! In this week’s episode Megan sits down with the Mount Pleasant Police Department to chat about distracted driving… and to finally convince y’all to stop driving through those tidal flood waters. #TurnAroundDontDrown
EPISODE 11 – There’s a 30% Chance… a storm’s a brewin’
Severe weather? Not terrible common here in the Lowcountry. However, when we get it, it can make a lasting impact. Megan and David talk how rare this mode of weather is for us, and catch up with Meteorologist Josh Marthers about last year’s Easter Monday tornadoes.
EPISODE 12 – There’s a 30% Chance… the tide is high
Anyone else a Blondie fan? We like the Tide is High but we really don’t care for when the tide here is THAT high. King Tides and coastal flooding sure cause quite the headache for the Lowcountry. This week’s episode even features a quick guest appearance from the Chief himself, Rob Fowler!
