The Dallas Fort Worth Microburst of 1985 | Episode 36
Play • 36 min
A lot of people have fears about flying: turbulence, engine failure, the sheer this-is-too-heavy-to-stay-in-the-air of it all, but we’re going to tell you a story about a whole new way to die in the air you didn’t even know about. 

On this episode, you’ll hear about people being reduced to burning tatters, you’ll learn why your $200 IPod Shuffle is more dangerous than lightning, and we’ll even maybe teach you the best seats for surviving a plane crash, sort of.

This is one of those episodes that remind us that the only thing that makes it bearable is the evolution of safety developed in its wake. In this case, a lot of people had to die so you could land safely at airports without even thinking about it.
