    It happened again on Friday. An angry passenger screaming "STOP THE PLANE!" tried to break into the cockpit on a Delta Air Lines flight from Los Angeles to Nashville. The crew restrained him, and the flight diverted to Albuquerque.

Christopher’s Podcasrs

I just discovered these today. They are cool. Christopher reads each of his stories I am working through them now to get current. His daily stories are part of my life. I can listen well I eat breakfast.

Well done, Chris

Content and delivery excellent. Background music awful. For us with hearing issues it makes listening very difficult. Without music you’d have gotten a five star.
