Episode 18: The Aggie Bonfire collapse

The official report on the collapse is the main source for this episode. It’s a really good read in that it’s not too dry, only sixty-two pages, contains some detailed graphics for people who need a more visual explanation, and really goes into every aspect of the disaster.
