Great story tellers.
Black box down is such a compelling podcast with great expert analysis of a wide range of aviation incidents. Gus and Chris have a great rapport and effortless style. I feel strangely reassured about flying when you hear just how many things have to go wrong for a crash to happen.

This is such a great show for anyone into avionics. There is this great chemistry between almost a teacher and student. Very entertaining and highly highly recommended.
