About This List

Figured I'd group all of us disaster casters to make us easier to find for each other's listeners.
  1. Active

  2. Who is to blame for history's greatest tragedies? The Plague. The sinking of The Titanic. The break-up of the Beatles. Writer/Comedian Rebecca Delgado-Smith and guests scrutinize history’s greatest disasters to figure out what went wrong, and most importantly, who’s to blame. Tell us who you think is to blame at Email us at Follow us on Instagram @thealarmistpodcast Follow us on Twitter @alarmistThe Call the Earios hotline! 844-370-8643
  3. All Bad Things is a weekly podcast about accidents, tragedies, natural disasters and other anxiety fuel. Hosted by wry GenXer David and bleeding-heart Millenial Rachel. Trigger warning for everything possible.
  4. A true crime podcast in the air. Lifelong aviation enthusiast Gustavo Sorola and his co-host Chris Demarais break down the major accidents in aviation and the steps taken to prevent future disasters. If you like true-crime podcasts but want something fresh and unique, you’ll love Black Box Down. Subscribe now and fasten your seat belt. New episodes release Thursdays at 2 AM Central.
  5. Calamity! is a podcast dedicated to disasters. In each episode, we learn about a calamitous event from around the globe, including the cause, relief efforts, aftermath, and lasting impact on society. Amid the sobering facts, we often find reason to celebrate the human spirit, and take a fascinating tour of science and history.
  6. Chain of Events. Cause and Effect. We analyse what went right and what went wrong as we discover that many outcomes can be predicted, planned for and even prevented.
  7. Transportation disasters occurred every day across the world. Most disasters are learned from which makes travel safer for everyone today. We tell the story of these disasters so they will not be forgotten. A "cornfield meet" is an old term used where two steam trains collide head-on in a field out in the country. We use this term to represent the meeting of transportation with a disaster. Climb aboard with your host Michele Sargent and co-hosts Andy Sargent (Sargent Signals) or Mel Bee as they take you through the history of accidents in transportation (rail, air, water, and road) on this weekly podcast! Podcast available on all major apps: iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, iHeartradio, Google Podcast, iTunes, Overcast and so much more.
  8. Phil Jerrod and Phil Lucas discuss the most famous disasters of all time, along with lots of other terrible calamities you may never have even heard about! Every two weeks we'll take you through what went wrong, how it went wrong, and sort out whether it was Our Fault, or God's Fault. It’s dark, funny, bleak and sometimes a little bit sad, but always entertaining. If you’re tired of True Crime, but still want something a bit dark on your commute to work, you’ll love the CB Wallop Podcast.
  9. A podcast about disasters throughout history - what caused them, how people survived, and how we've responded to keep those disasters from happening again.
  10. Reflecting on human society from diverse disciplinary and ideological perspectives to understand the root causes of disasters.
  11. Disaster Tales is a conversational review of historical disasters and the issues that surround them. Each monthly episode examines both man made and natural disasters and the events and changes they cause.
  12. Whether natural or man-made, disasters attract a strange mixture of horror and fascination. However, the spectacle of devastation is only ever one part of the story. Take a closer look, and you will find tales of extraordinary human endurance and heroism, stories that veer from the horrific to the oddly humorous, and lessons that can be learned to make our world safer. From the Titanic to the Costa Concordia, the Station nightclub fire to the Pulse nightclub shooting, these extraordinary events – and the people involved – are examined on the Great Disasters podcast, written, researched, recorded and produced by me, Kari Fay. From official reports, first-person accounts, and contemporary media, I delve into the often-appalling details of these events to bring you the full story.
  13. Tsunamis, volcanoes, tornadoes, earthquakes...these are real-life monsters. We like to think we’re prepared for a catastrophe. But time and time again, Mother Nature proves us wrong. Each week, Natural Disasters examines the earth’s biggest catastrophes that took countless lives, destroyed communities, and toppled civilizations. Natural Disasters is a Parcast Original with new episodes released every Thursday.
  14. 1

  15. I'm a pilot obsessed with flying and all things aviation. This podcast series covers more than a century of commercial aviation and how its shaped the world. Aviation is now safer than its ever been, but it took one hundred years of learning and often through accidents and incidents to reduce the risk of flying.

  17. We go on a journey through the history of disasters: Some man-made, some natural, some modern, some ancient, and all devastating.

  1. Occasionally Dabbles in the genre

  2. Hello and welcome to Body Count, the podcast where we believe history doesn’t repeat itself; it rhymes. Our only rule when we choose a topic: someone, or a lot of someones, died. Host and lazy historian Jessica Manor takes a co-host verbally hostage once a week to cover topics ranging from Genghis Khan to Mount St. Helens. We give you the series of events in a narrative fashion and correlate said story with current events. Please check all highbrow academia at the door and buckle up for a wacky adventure through the annals of history. Member of the Big Heads Media Network.

Follow our Twitter updates at @BradyHeywoodPod
  3. Catastrophes are part of life, but many of the worst are the direct result of human error. Whether it’s poor planning, design flaws, or simply greed or hubris, we are often our own worst enemy. Join volcanologist Jess Phoenix as she explores the stories of natural disaster, failure, and calamity, and what we learn from our fascination with digging through the rubble.
  4. If there is a catastrophe or disaster, manmade or natural, it has probably grabbed our attention. Join us as we delve into the world of catastrophes and disasters, find out what went wrong, and the lasting consequences.

  6. Engineers make the news by designing cool things, building great things, or causing spectacular disasters. Apollo 11 is famous for putting astronauts on the Moon - Apollo 13 is famous for putting astronauts in extreme peril. The Curiousity Rover landed on Mars. The Mars Polar Lander crashed iinto Mars. The Golden Gate bridge is a spectacular landmark - the Tacoma Narrows bridge was a spectacular failure. There are place names hardly anyone would know except for the tragic events that happened there. Bhopal, Potters Bar, Chernobyl, Flixborough, Seveso, Fukushima. This is a podcast about how not to be famous.

  3. Miss Alex is known for sharing the stories of horrific plagues during awkward lunch hours. She's an avid reader of Wikipedia's "list of worst natural disasters" page, and reading Camus's "The Plague" as a 14-year-old scared the crap out of her just enough to become fascinated with them (and terrified of rodents). She loves telling stories, and she wants to share a crazy one with you.
  4. Greetings! Welcome to the Podcast of Doom--a podcast that explores the famous disasters and emphatically bad decisions of history. We will travel around the world and analyze how these calamities occurred.
