Welcome to Take to the Sky!

We are a story-focused weekly podcast dedicated to our shared secret obsession: air disasters.

If you’re a fan of air travel, true crime, aviation history, and storytelling, there’s a good chance this podcast is for you. If you can’t seem to look away every time a cable news station runs 24/7 coverage of a plane crash, you’re not alone—and you’ll love spending time with us!

In every episode, we share a new story about some of the noteworthy plane crashes and air disasters that have made headlines over the years. In addition to discussing the facts, we also talk about the people and legacies that have led to improvements in flight safety. We’re here to share the facts, details, and surprises behind some of the disasters that occur at 35,000 feet. Most of all, we want to have fun. And it’s OK to have fun talking about plane crashes. Really. We promise.

Rate, review, and subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Pandora, Audacy, or anywhere you listen to podcasts. Your reviews help us to share these stories and their legacies as widely as possible!
