I’ve been fascinated by disasters since I was a child. Okay, that may be a little odd, but disasters are fascinating things. There’s so much to learn from them, on a human level and on a more analytical front. What went wrong? How could it have been prevented? How did people react and cope with the situation? From the Titanic to the Costa Concordia, the Station nightclub fire to the Pulse nightclub shooting, these extraordinary events – and the ordinary people involved – will be examined on the Great Disasters podcast, a fortnightly broadcast written, researched, recorded and produced by me, Kari Fay.
