Go-to for all things aviation

Great podcast for all things aviation; commercial, defense and related industries from WW2 airshows to the latest from Cirrus. Professionally produced and well organized, they added chapters last year so if it’s too long you can skip to the parts you like. Or just listen and you might learn something. This podcast is really just a part of, and the center of, a much bigger community that has developed around it.

Over speed

Wind shift can create a sudden increase in airspeed and cause a sudden over speed.
Airlines should be talking about these things openly in an ideal safety culture.

Stay up to date with a minimal time investment

With so many avaiation podcasts out there it is hard to pick one that will keep you generally informed on what is going on in the aviation world without a huge investemtn in time. I find that Airplane Geeks does this with their weekly, about-an-hour episodes, while providing some in depth learning on one topic.
