Whether natural or man-made, disasters attract a strange mixture of horror and fascination. However, the spectacle of devastation is only ever one part of the story. Take a closer look, and you will find tales of extraordinary human endurance and heroism, stories that veer from the horrific to the oddly humorous, and lessons that can be learned to make our world safer.
 
From the Titanic to the Costa Concordia, the Station nightclub fire to the Pulse nightclub shooting, these extraordinary events – and the people involved – are examined on the Great Disasters podcast, written, researched, recorded and produced by me, Kari Fay.
 
From official reports, first-person accounts, and contemporary media, I delve into the often-appalling details of these events to bring you the full story.

Just want to say thank you

I have enjoyed the podcast. Keep up the great work. The podcast is great. It goes into great detail without being just a list of facts. I love the way she tells the story of each disaster and gives prospective s from those involved.

Not an ordinary disaster podcast!

Beautifully researched and told with a lovely voice, this is not just another disaster podcast! A unique mix of well-known and more obscure disasters. Looking forward to more new episodes
