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.

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!

Research amazing but....

.....the ladies must be competing for a ‘Most Words Said’ competition because the need to comment on every-little-thing is a constant. I get it—that’s what podcasters do, but each girl cuts each host (3 host total) off every chance they get. The poor guy host just wants to finish a sentence sometimes—-and I WANT him to finish a sentence cause it’s usually interesting what he’s saying.

That said—very well researched and you can really tell these host enjoy what they are discussing.
