Great pod

Pcpc is incredible. Certainly not a better plane crash related podcast out there. About 24 hours so far of awesome content. Thorough research, great hosts (Tess should be considered a host not a guest). Very good job y’all.

Really Well Done

I really enjoy listening because it’s fascinating to hear how the crash happens, what was going on in the cockpit, and how air travel was made safer because of the incident.

Fave Podcast!!!

Plane Crash Podcast is my absolute favorite non-business podcast. In fact, it’s the only podcast I listen to “just because.” For reference, I found Serial boring and gave up. I have a low tolerance for boring podcasts, mainly b/c I have the attention span of a gnat. But, there’s something about Michael and Tess (and the accidents they choose to cover) that grips me every time. As a formerly terrified flier, I have found TV shows like Mayday (Air Crash Investigation) very helpful in mitigating my fears over time. So, I can’t say that I really listen to PCPC to allay my fears of flying at this point. Instead, I simply have an interest in how plane crashes improve overall aviation safety. PCPC has a very relaxed vibe and the hosts have come into their own with a respectful, informative, genuine attitude toward discussing plane crashes. The first few episodes, I’ll admit, teetered on the edge of possibly a bit abrasive. This is through no fault of Michael or Tess, and it really was just the natural process of finding the right tone for such a sensitive podcast topic. I think it was smart to take the comedian off later episodes. He’s funny AF, but his brand of humor might have come across wrong at a few points in those early episodes. If you happen to listen and find the first few episodes mildly abrasive, please skip ahead to the ones where it’s just Michael and Tess.I find Michael and Tess to balance a nice amount of banter and aviation news with hard facts. And, they inject the PERFECT amount of sensitivity to the victims and their families. I also enjoy that the episodes, while they sometimes are familiar to me from Mayday, always delve deeper into the back story of the pilots, their families, and the passengers. I always learn something new, even if I’m familiar with the crash they’re discussing.The episodes are long. Sometimes, they’re a bit *too* long when I’m in a hurry. I solve that by returning later to finish up when needed. Anyway, this is the first review of a podcast that I have ever written. I just get so much out of PCPC and couldn’t not write a review. I love it and would genuinely be upset if the podcast were discontinued. I love hearing the hosts’ journeys toward feeling less fear when flying, and I love the updates on general aviation news—provided by laypeople. It’s perfect for me, and I now have my husband hooked, too. Thanks for providing a fabulous podcast! You two rock!

Can’t stop listening!

Great topic for a podcast. I have a few crashes you could cover:Flight 191 out of Chicago 1979 (I know someone who went to pick up one of the passengers that perished).Flight 587 out of JFK Nov 2001Flight Learjet 35 1999 Payne StewartRegarding Flight 800. I thought you could have spent more time on that crash. I have always doubted the “cause.” I’m hoping someone could convince me that it was the center fuel tank explosion. I am not sold on that conclusion.Thank you for a fabulous podcast!Best regards,Christine M. PacTarzana, CA

Long winded on your introduction

I enjoy your show. But every episode has a minimum of 12 minutes of wierd useless conversation that can be cut down to make the show better.

Ehhh

The content is interesting, there’s a lot of interview chatter that isn’t interesting or entertaining. The thing that really killed this podcast for me was the levity they showed when referring to people losing their lives AND one of the guests talking about how fat the person next to him on the plane was. The guest also went on to say that the passenger next to him started eating Oreos and he wanted to tell him not to get fatter. I’m sure this guy thought he was being funny, but he wasn’t. The fact that the producers of this podcast didn’t think it was necessary to edit the “fat” portion out makes them equally fallible. I won’t listen beyond this one episode.

Always interesting and right focus on what was learned/fixed

Great podcast. This is a not a gore and violence podcast. Instead, Michael and Tess do a great job focusing on the lessons that came from airline mishaps to demonstrate how commercial aviation in the US became the safest in the world and continues to become safer. As an aviation professional, I used to discuss these accidents with my students in crew-resource-management and simulator training. Michael and Tess do a great job translating the aviation jargon into something the layperson can understand, while not watering it down so much that seasoned aviators find it boring.

Great Podcast that I really appreciate

I would like to thank you for producing this podcast. Some of these unfortunate accidents and crashes I have read/researched before, however there are many that I was unaware of. I have been following air crashes and accidents since I was about 9 years old. I am an anxious person/flier! Like you I am extremely interested about finding out how these crashes implemented increased safety measures and changes. I would like to recommend a podcast on USAir flight 405 that crashed on takeoff from LaGuardia in March of 1992. I do know it was a catalyst for improving better deicing procedures for aircraft. When I was 9 years old my parents were going through a divorce and my counselor was killed in this crash flying home to Cleveland after a weekend visiting NYC. I hope to find out more details of crash and how it help make air travel safer for everyone. Thank you for your time and I am extremely appreciative for your podcast! Thank You!!

Nice Podcast, But Can Get Better

This is a great podcast to learn about aviation accidents, although on a more amateur scale. It’s probably not the most informing podcast out there, but it is fun to listen to. Objectively, I would rate it a four star. I am not an aviation expert, but I do have some basic to intermediate knowledge about planes, flight, airlines, and aircraft accidents, and this podcast is about that level. Again, it’s not the best informative one out there, but it is a great podcast considering that the hosts are not aviation experts or students. There are some things I would suggest doing to improve the podcast.1. Dive deeper into the events, it will be more appealing to more educated audiences.2. Invite aviation experts or accident witnesses (like with Western Airlines 2605) to the podcast to increase the presence of ethos in the show.3. Weekly Uploads? Or Bi-Weekly? It will be really nice for there to be a scheduled4. Change guests throughout episodes. Tess is nice and adds to the podcast, but she has been the guest since episode 4 or 5. It’ll be nice to see some other guests once in a while. Maybe just establish her as the co-host?5. It would be awesome if there can be a segment (15 minutes or so) every episode to discuss more wide scale modern aviation news and aircraft models. I know Michael spends about 5-10 minutes discussing “the world of aviation”, but I feel like that it fails to cover more important headlines.Again, this is a great podcast and has potential to grow even more. Also, please do not criticize the host for being “unprofessional” as he states that he a pilot of aviation expert at the beginning of every episode.
