Horrible incidents, but extremely compelling listening

John does a wonderful of walking through and unpicking the incidents discussed. His expertise in control systems and how they factor into unfolding events make this a must listen for anyone with an interest in engineering matters. Keep listening and pay attention.

Fukushima

Great podcast. Just finished Fukushima and it’s amazing the amount of misinformation put out by other podcasts that talk about this incident. It’s great to get an engineering perspective on what happened. Keep up the great work.

Wonderfully in-depth explanations by an engineer

John explains the causes of disasters in great detail—many of them about incredibly interesting events that I did’t even know about.
