A fantastic perspective on aviation

Gus is hands down my favorite podcast host. Chris’ enthusiasm at the start and growth in understanding (along with the listener, such as myself) is also fun to listen to. Aviation has always fascinated me and Gus and Chris have a way of making these disasters enjoyable to learn about. I especially appreciate how they try to explain how each disaster was learned from and changed different aspects of the industry. Just listen.

Great!

Super informative, I didn’t think that I would even be into information about plane crashes but now I’m obsessed. As someone who knows absolutely 0 about planes, the details are broken down so well. Great podcast!

Flight Attendant Love

I’m a flight attendant and love this podcast! I love the way all the information is presented and appreciate that not only do they mention what went wrong but what resulted and changed in the industry because of it. The aviation industry is very reactive and as a flight attendant part of our training is to understand why we have certain rules and unfortunately what crash or death caused such changes so I love that the general public is finally hearing and understanding why we are so adamant about things like seatbelts and tray tables.

Review from an Aviation fanatic

So I just want to say for the record I love podcasts and especially true crime I supplement my podcasts with tv as well. Gus I just have to say after binging all the way through the episodes you are not alone in your fascination with aviation. I have personally watched almost all episodes of air disasters, air crash investigation Alaska, and all other air crash shows available on tv. Originally before developing narcolepsy I wanted to go into the navy as a fighter pilot and move to NASA so as to fly top secret air craft. I think aviation is one of the coolest advancements we have made though it probably helps my moms side is distantly related to the wright brothers ;) this is the one of my favorite podcasts and definitely in my top 5. I am so glad I found it especially since it seems to be a unique podcast as I haven’t found any others that talk about plane crashes and aviation disasters. I can’t wait for future episodes and thanks for creating this! Real quick point of constructive criticism: Gus buddy I understand your fascination with aviation as I said and I know there is a lot of info to get through but I have to be honest for the plane crashes I don’t already know about, I have to listen to your episodes a couple times. You talk really fast and it’s so much detailed information that it is hard to keep up and process the whole way. If you could slow down a bit. Certain parts you slow down enough to keep up but then when going over some details you breeze through and I have to rewind it and relisten to it again.

Informative and Interesting!

I love this podcast! Gus is clearly passionate about the topic and conveys things really well — informative but never too complicated. And Chris is a great counter to Gus by asking questions someone as informed on the topic as Gus might not stop and think to ask, but that the audience might be thinking. Overall one of my favorite listens right now!

Scary good

I agree with the other positive comments: super interesting, kinda terrifying, full of great new info. Thanks, Gus, you’re a great presenter. But I want to give a shout out to Chris as such an excellent ‘everyman’ responding to Gus’s info. He’s a great stand in for the audience, and asks GOOD questions. Often the secondary host on a show is either trying too hard to be funny, completely unnecessary, or throws off the main story. I love the dynamic between these hosts and really appreciate how Chris asks thoughtful questions that I’m sure most of us listening are wondering as well. (Gus is so enthusiastic and knowledgeable on the topic, it’s great he’s paused occasionally to translate for us novices!)Anyway, thanks to both of you for a great show (and thanks to Covid so I won’t be flying anytime soon, lol)!

It’s my new favorite podcast

I’m super picky about podcasts and I LOVE this one. I was skeptical if I would like it because planes seemed boring to me, but turns out they’re not! The host is really good at presenting all the information in a clear way and he explains technical plane things in a way that’s easy to understand.

Informative, Entertaining, and Digestable

Love this podcast. I had no previous experience or intrigue into the world of aviation, but I love to learn. It wasn’t until after I found this series that I found a new enthusiasm for the work of flight. I listen at my work (which is right new to a private airport) and now I watch the tiny prop planes swoop in their massive elliptical paths around my building. I think about their mechanics and operating procedures. Now I might want to drive over and see about some flight lessons.

Great to Listen to at Work

I’ve been watching Rooster Teeth content for years, so I am already familiar with Gus and Chris. Even if you are new to their content, I highly recommend this podcast. This stuff is super interesting and I haven’t even heard of most of these incidents prior to listening!

A great listen when mowing a lawn

I have started listening to this podcast when I mow my lawn and it is a very enjoyable way to pass the time when mowing. This was a subject I didn't really have any knowledge about, but it is a great mix of informative and interesting. Now let me stress that this 5 star review assumes that it is being listened to during a mow and I can not vouch for if this podcast is enjoyable if you are not mowing a lawn. When the winter months come and I have to stop mowing until next year I will most likely have to hiberante on my listening of this podcast until the next year. If you have a lot of grass to deal with you should give this podcast a listen.

Need more.

I may be biased as I’m deep in the Rooster teeth ecosystem and watch a lot of content but I feel this is a really well done, widely appealing show. Gus comes in with a lot of passion and curiosity for the aviation and said mysteries; he does a good job with fact, pacing, and structure. With him he brings Chris, the goofy boyish one from RT. Chris brings a eclectic energy and peppers in humor when appropriate. He also asks the question you may be thinking but never would ask. Gus and Chris have a good rapport that makes it feel like you’re listening to two of your own friends talk. I typically would listen while I game or other stuff and find my self pausing the game and rewinding the podcast to enjoy more attentively. I would rate higher if I could.

Fascinating podcast, well produced

As a fellow avgeek, I really enjoy hearing about aviation history and how accidents have shaped aviation today. This podcast does a great job explaining the incidents, why they happened, and why we should care in an entertaining and compelling way. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who liked aviation or even true crime

What’s the rush?

Slow the pace a bit. I am fascinated by air crashes and have watched every documentary I can find. You are telling a story- a story about the most horrifying thing that could happen in an an airplane/jet. Airplanes and crashes are complicated and you seem to blast through important points as if you're speed reading. Tell The Story.Chris doesn’t seem to know or be interested in a darn thing about planes. IMHO, a guest host (Chris) ought to have SOME passion for the topic. Hundreds of people die in these events. Families are devastated. Act interested. Better yet, be interested.

Flight Attendant Approved!!!!

This podcast is both entertaining and informative!!! The hosts make serious situations understandable by breaking down the how and why in terms that regular people can understand. As a flight attendant myself, I love to hear about what goes wrong in the air because one day (God forbid) that may help me save countless lives. These situations are sad but oh so real. Air travel is definitely the safest form of transportation due to all the advancements and changes made from these tragedies. Thankful to have found this podcast and can’t wait to hear more!

I love this podcast!

I don’t know much about aviation but I’m learning so much and I find this entire subject fascinating. The two hosts Gus and Chris have a great banter and I love true crime podcasts but this is like a completely different twist on the subject. Try this podcast I don’t think you will be disappointed!!

Very informative

This is a very well produced podcast, where the host will dive directly into the story with facts, what is known, and give you all the information needed within a small time frame. Perfect podcast if you are on a long commute to work in the car. Awful podcast if you commute by plane. Keep up the great work.

Chris is smarter than he sounds, I promise you.

Gus Sorola is the pilot and Chris Demarais is the kid who gets a paper hat who’s just there along for the ride. Very informational and entertaining. Definitely worth the rating.

From a female flight student

Love this podcast! It’s an easy way for me to brush up on aircraft accidents and incidents (especially since I can’t fly because of quarantine). I study aviation disasters in many of my flight courses so I have already heard of some of these accidents. Listening to someone else’s analysis of what happened is really interesting to me. I like how Gus and Chris think outside the box (lol) and talk about crashes that came about under different circumstances; mislead missiles, airship disasters, and system errors. The hosts do great research and remain focused on the facts of the accident, while also entertaining their audience. (And hey Gus, if you’re reading this, look up the Swiss Cheese Model, it does a great job of explaining how many aircraft accidents are caused.) Overall it’s a great, informative, and entertaining podcast that I highly recommend to anyone interested in Aviation. Thanks for making studying fun!
