The latest episode is particularly interesting as Andy chats with Rachel Slade, acclaimed author of 'Into the Raging Sea'. Rachel's first book looks at the heartbreaking account of the sinking of the American merchant ship 'El Faro'. On October 1, 2015, 'El Faro' was lost at sea with all hands after losing propulsion near the eyewall of Hurricane Joaquin.
It's truly an intriguing chat with Rachel who compels you to find out more about this tragic story, how the shipping industry works and lessons that have, hopefully, been learned. I know I'll be adding 'Into the Raging Sea' to my Christmas wish list.
So enjoy. Make a cup of tea & make some time in your day to listen.
