    This is a super episode! My wife introduced me to FlightAware on a recent trip and it allowed her and me to feel confident about our travel. The discussion on this episode reveals how geeky and technical airline flying can be, but underneath it all is a true enthusiasm for flight by the host and guest. Enjoyable!
