saderfanatic ,

really swell!

Kids nowadays can put together a terrific podcast about death and destruction in fiery obliteration and not be either morbid or stupid which is what most podcasts about this subject often do. One of the female hosts (Miranda) will occastionally get a bit shrill which tests whats left of my hearing but that's okay. I hope to be perished soon anyway. Really great podcast.

Too Heavy to Land, by One

This is one of those podcasts that makes the all-too-common mistake of 1) assuming their listeners are stupid; 2) adding a superfluous person to represent the stupid listeners; and 3) asking the dumbest friend they have to be that person.

Both women talk in goofy, affected voices a lot. They still sound uncomfortable after 100+ episodes. Miranda constantly interrupts to ask obvious questions or to ruin the point someone was building up to. The only sound effect they need is not, as they seem to think, a piercing recreation of a cockpit warning. It’s a *womp womp* to play every time Miranda talks.

The worst habits of Thinking Sideways, Going West, and LPOTL all in one tiresome package. Good effort?

Fun and Informative

My favorite podcast. The hosts set a conversational but informative tone that is easy to listen to, easy to follow, and even sometimes fun (which sounds weird for a podcast about aviation disasters, but they make it work!) 5 stars and highly recommended!
