Well researched/written, presentation could improve

Generally, I like this podcast! The host’s genuine interest in each topic definitely shows, each disaster is very thoroughly researched, and the scripts are well-structured and respectful of the victims involved.

The audio quality can vary though, and the narration is not super polished, with pretty frequent stumbles. A bit more work could be put into correct pronunciation of names/places, especially when covering disasters in areas outside of the US/UK/Canada.

Bad research and confusing retelling

She jumps around in her narratives sometimes and it makes for a slightly confusing understanding of what actions take place first and what leads to what. See the Hoboken Docks Fire. Also her Carolean death march episode was ridiculous in leaving out all of the atrocities committed by the Swedish army to the people of Norway they plundered and raped and killed and the children who starved because of their invasion. She acted like these poor Swedes just got caught up in the cold and died.

Great topics but.....

Great topics and great research. I find myself focused on the podcast. But girl—-stop apologizing so much!! Every time you think you say a word incorrectly you apologize. I listen to the Pan Am helicopter accident and you apologized to any helicopters buffs listening because you weren’t sure of the helicopter parts! But keep up the fantasy research!
