Two crashes involving the new 737 MAX aircraft, one in October 2018 and one in March 2019, took the lives of 346 people. In this week's episode of Take to the Sky: The Air Disaster Podcast, Shelly recounts the terror that happened onboard Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, as well as the investigation that followed, which led to shocking discoveries about how the aircraft design came to be and the flawed process used to certify the plane as safe.
We start this episode by talking about our new favorite quarantine activity: baking! Stephanie baked an almost perfect cheesecake; this photo shares a few of her other creations. Need recipes? Just ask!
