Nice job, Justin. Similar to another favorite show of mine, Disaster Area, Disasters from History is a well researched and entertaining podcast - written, performed, and edited all by one person! A solid Titantic series plus episodes featuring lesser known disasters such as ten-cent beer night (what the hell were they thinking). Justin has a great voice and I'm looking forward to the next episode.

Rank #3: Departure

Podcast cover

It is often said that we know more about outer space than we do about the darkest depths of our oceans. With oceans covering over 70% of Earth's surface, it's easy to believe that hidden in their depths lie some amazing historical artifacts and relics. One of these relics in particular, despite its world-famous reputation, has only been seen, in-person, by very few pairs of eyes over the last century. This is the story of that artifact. (This is part one of a multi-part series.)

Rank #5: A Killer Crowd

Podcast cover
Read more

Whether waiting outside a concert venue, a shopping mall, attending a rally, or even just waiting for a subway train, crowds are all around us. They're an everyday part of life for many of us, especially for those who live in cities or other population-dense areas. Though we all know the joys and pangs of being a part of one, many of us forget, or are straight-up unaware, of the inherent dangers that are present in large, high-density masses of people. Thankfully, various protocols and developing technologies have helped manage large crowds to make them safer, but these modern day advances are all a direct result of events which unfolded outside a concert venue on a cold December night in 1979.

NOTE: I apologize for the clipping audio which is present in most episodes of this podcast. These clips are caused by my fairly old computer which I record on, and its inability to process audio seamlessly. Trust me, I find the issues very annoying myself and I am working to correct them in future episodes. Thank you for your understanding.
