Hey all, so in case you didn't see the announcement video, we launched a new scripted podcast last Wednesday called Extremities. It's all about why and how people live in earth's most isolated and extreme settlements. In season one, we tell the story of Pitcairn Island--a small British territory in the South Pacific with just 50 people. It's 300 miles/500 kilometers away from the nearest other inhabited place, 3000 miles/5000 kilometers away from the nearest city, and 10,000 miles/16,000 kilometers away from its capital city in London. The twist and turns that Pitcairn takes through history and the explanation of why and how Pitcairn still exists today are fascinating, in my biased opinion. Episode 1 is out now, episode 2 comes out tomorrow, and I'd love it if you'd give it a listen. Extremities is available at the following places: Apple Podcasts: podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/extremities/id1467292185 Anchor: anchor.fm/extremities Spotify: open.spotify.com/show/3yXc8WTwbZcieQhdr3Y6ao Google Podcasts: www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy9iZWJhNzBjL3BvZGNhc3QvcnNz Stitcher: www.stitcher.com/podcast/anchor-podcasts/extremities Breaker: www.breaker.audio/extremities Overcast: overcast.fm/itunes1467292185/extremities Pocket Casts: pca.st/OW0M Podbean: www.podbean.com/podcast-detail/e7bgg-9466c/Extremities-Podcast RadioPublic: radiopublic.com/extremities-8gKAOL I hope you enjoy! -Sam

4:35 Your INCORRECT GRAPHIC does not match with the spoken words. The graphic shows "<24,500 ft" or LESS THAN 24,500 while the spoken words describe Maastricht air control in control of traffic GREATER THAN 24,500 ft. The correct graphic would be ">24,500 ft". Please correct your graphic.

At times the planes are spaced in such a way that their airstreams eventually widen and merge with the one next to it resulting in a thin but total cloud cover. One can imagine that the area trees hate those days.

Twenty flights daily equals more than one an hour? Must be on metric time in Europe.

Step 1: raise ATC wages. Seriously, how much could it cost to pay that small group of highly talented individuals enough to not strike.

It really depends on where the ATCs are working. In my area they get paid 100,000+

Spoken like someone who doesn't understand the job. When you can put 135 (I had about 95 of those) airplanes on 4 runways in an hour then maybe you can voice an intelligent opinion. There is no IA that could have kept up with that hour! BTW, using EuroControl is probably not a good example of volume. Try the busier FAA ATC facilities. We rarely limited flights based on staffing. Volume goes up and we just work harder/smarter.

In this day and generation, I'd have expected ATC software be able to render flights (with their projected vectors) and terrain in 3D perspective to give them better visualisation of separation or impending danger.

Hey Wendover Production. Just out of curiosity; is it your own crew that conducted the interview with that directors? If yes, you have made it in life.

Not fun fact: Obama was quota hiring Air Traffic Controllers. Putting me, my student pilots, and the public at risk. When Trump was told...he immediately ended this racist and dangerous practice. The Leftist media...which even slammed Trump for "misfeeding goldfish" in Japan....said not a word. Why? Try defending "How not White or not Asian are you?" as a job qualifier. Especially for a job where lives are at risk.

As an ATC I had to train these hires. They had NO idea what real ATC entailed. It is very difficult to teach someone to think 3-dimensionally. Instead of having a limited amount of hours to certify (check-out), the FAA instituted "train to succeed." We called it train to suck!
