I'm more than happy to endorse everything Andrew says here. Doing an interview for him was a pleasure. It's a neat podcast he's running. John

> Episode 15: John Downer on Fukushima and quantitative risk assessment
> Episode 16: Michael Holloway and the Iraqi Grain Disaster (no particular connection there)
> Episode 17: Glenbrook, Waterfall and failing to learn from accidents
> Episode 18: Friendly fire and data safety (yes, there is a connection there)
> Episode 19: Through Life Safety, Alaska Airlines 261, and Star Trek Transporters

> For those who don't have to worry about "impact", public engagement is fun, and the audience is much bigger than a typical class or conference room.
