In the 37th podcast from CatastropheCast.com, we delve into the troubled history of the de Havilland Comet, and how the lessons learned from those crashes led to safer airplanes today, led to a better understanding of metal fatigue, and unwittingly gave rise to de Havilland's competitor, Boeing, taking the lead in jet airliners.…

In the 36th podcast from CatastropheCast.com, we delve into the last time the world was under the grips of a disease on a massive scale - the Spanish Flu of 1918. In this podcast, we talk about the potential origins, why it's called The Spanish Flu when there was no origin of the virus in Spain, and how one city avoided the second wave of the flu, …
 
Japan is a country that's accustomed to earthquakes, and one you might have thought would be prepared for anything. However, they were not prepared for the scale of the megathrust earthquake that happened one Friday afternoon in March. Drawing heavily from eyewitness accounts, I'll tell the story of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Visit w…
 
It is perhaps the most famous volcano in the world - but the event it’s best known for happened almost two thousand years ago. So what is it about Mount Vesuvius that allows its story to endure? Using the eyewitness account of Pliny the Younger and other historic and modern material, I'll tell the story of Vesuvius and Pompeii. Visit www.greatdisas…
 
In the 35th podcast from CatastropheCast.com, we delve into the most powerful earthquake to rock Japan that has ever been recorded, and the ensuing tsunami and nuclear disaster. Also, I interview Professor Daniel Aldrich who has written a book about survival when it comes to Japan's 3/11 Catastrophes, and the surprising (to me, at least) rates of s…
 
In the glamorous Gangnam area of Seoul, South Korea, hundreds of shoppers browsed through luxury goods or stopped to grab a couple of things on their way home from work. Then, with a loud bang, the store literally collapsed around them. Drawing on contemporary news reports and accounts from survivors, witnesses and investigators, I'll tell the full…
 
Also known as "an Gorta Mór" in Irish, or the Irish Potato Famine to those outside the Emerald Isle, the Great Hunger created a dividing line in Irish history. It was triggered by the potato blight, but the true depth of misery that it brought was largely created by the politics of the British government. Drawing on contemporary news reports and hi…

In the 30th podcast from CatastropheCast.com, we go back in time more than 100 years and discuss the incident that destroyed the city of Halifax while World War I was raging on the other side of the planet, how hard it was to survive, and the heroes that came out of it. And we also touch on two recent Boeing 737MAX crashes, in the hopes of coming t…
 
This episode looks at a disaster which struck close to my home - the Morecambe Bay cocklepicking disaster. A large group of Chinese immigrant labourers were sent out onto the sands to collect cockles, but they didn't know just how dangerous the tide can be.

In the 29th podcast from CatastropheCast.com, we go into two different incidents that happened ten years and ten miles from each other in San Juan Puerto Rico. The hotel fire has always intrigued me, and the building explosion was a listener request. And remember, Puerto Rico isn't a foreign country, but is rather a territory of the United States. …
 
Mining has never been a job to take lightly. With the weight of the world above their heads, and only the lights they took underground with them, the miners of Monongah worked in dirty, cramped spaces for the Fairmont Coal Company.
