Today, we’re going to make you afraid of water, and invertebrates, and working. We’ve covered a lot of Bad Day at Work episodes, but this is by far the worst one we’ve ever done, and we don’t mean just by blood volume. We mean by pure existential horror. Enjoy! On this episode, we’re going to explore a job so difficult, there are less than 400 people on the planet who can do it, you’re going to hear about the forced the expulsion of his thoracoabdominal cavity, and you’re going to hear the term meat balloon used contextually. This is hands down the most existentially horrifying episode we’ve done to date. It all takes place in a moment, and it looks like something out of that annual La Tomatina tomato-based street fight they hold in Spain. Celebrity guest stars include James Cameron, Jaques Picard, World Record holders Herbert Nitsch  and Ahmed Gabr, and Nils Olav III the Penguin.

No matter what the scariest thing you’ve ever seen on Halloween, it was a baby food sampling party compared to what we’re about to talk about. You’re going to hear about people crushed under concrete two feet thick, a particularly instructional kind of trauma, and the generous help of volunteers trying to straighten out twisted limbs to make people appear more comfortable. On this unusual episode, we’re going to deal with more gas than you could way a hockey stick at. We’re going to try and convince you smelling farts are good for you, We’ll learn about propane safety and why it’s important for public events to start on time. What we’re about to talk about has been called the most deadly accident in Indiana State History and special guest stars include The Beatles

If you’ve ever watched someone using drugs while going to the bathroom on a train, you’ve seen some pretty egregious stuff, but I can promise you’ve never seen anything like this before. It’s the Malbone Street Disaster of 1918. On this episode, you’re going to hear about people performing acrobatics through a cacophony of sharpness. And debatably, it only gets worse from there. And it all takes place in the dark. We have had plenty of episodes in the “bad day at work” category, but this one, woof. The Malbone Street Disaster was so awful, they buried and renamed everything around it so no one would ever have to think about it again. And yes, it’s horrific, but on the plus side, we’re working with the MTA to make sure you’re prepared for anything from light groping to MMA practice to grand larceny the next time you find yourself in an NYC subway.

Do you like mountain roads, claustrophia and not breathing well? Have we got a road trip for you. We’re visiting Afghanistan, but we’re not visiting for the breathtaking beauty - we’re visiting for the unrelenting brutality. On this episode, you’re going to hear about just about every bad thing that can happen behind the wheel. You’re not going to hear a lot of impact injuries, but there will be fire and people will suffocate as many ways as they can. This is a bit of a special episode personally, in that we are revisiting the Soviet Union’s disastrous invasion of Afghanistan in the 1980s. And now, forty years later, Russia has invaded Ukraine. In 1940, my father’s family was forced from his ancestral farmland in Ukraine by Russians. If not for that, this podcast might have been recorded in Ukrainian. I stand with the people of Ukraine, but I also stand with the people of Russia who recognize this invasion for what it is.

Today we’re going to cover a ghost story, which is cool, but most of the ghosts are women and children, so actually I actually would have been more comfortable starting with a child labour joke. You’re going to hear a lot about bosses and employees and employee rights and work-life balance, and in our history of bad day at work episodes, this one is special. That said, you’re going to hear about people Tetrised into debris and then set on fire.
We’ve talked about some emotionally draining and painful disasters, but having researched hundreds of disasters, I was touched by the level of humanity displayed in this one. What we’re about to talk about has been called The Worst Industrial Accident in Massachusetts History and one of the Worst in American History – which is saying a lot.

You’re about to hear a story about the most unique and deadly natural disasters to ever hit the US that no one was allowed to talk about. An amazing story that started out as a draft. This is the first story we’ve done where the resulting damage can be compared to laser damage from space, so you know you’re going to hear about a lot of people Hereditaried and bisected and a whole host of things so awful most didn’t make it into the show.

On today’s episode, we’re talking tornados, but we’re not focusing on the science. We are focusing on a tornadic ability that freaked me the hell out, and I think it can do the same for you. Celebrity guests include world record holders Matt Suter and Usain Bolt, Tetsuya Teddy Fujita, Dave Thomas of Wendy’s fame, Orville Redenbacher,  Roger Edwards of the National Weather Service, and God - or at least God’s Finger.

Elephants make a trumpeting sound to indicate excitement, aggression or distress, and it’s loud enough to hear up to six miles away. You know where you don’t want to hear it? Six feet away. On this episode, we’re going to explore several new ways to die, most of them bloodless. You’re going to find out how to out-smart one of the smartest creatures on the planet, and this will be the second time you’ll hear Kool-Aid Man used as a verb. You’ll learn how dangerous elephants can be compared to other actual predators. You’ll learn ho much they can bench with their nose among other things, and celebrity mentions include billionaire Tom Siebel, boxer Mike Tyson, Olympian Usain Bolt, Kana the Tiger, and three blind men of ancient lore.

On today’s special holiday Disaster Moviesode, we’re visiting a story so unbelievable, NASA actually uses it as a diagnostic to pre-screen test applicants. They study it for inaccuracies. The record so far is 168. Let’s see how we do. We’re revisiting the cinematic spectacle of Michael Bay’s 1998 end-of-the-world Action Adventure Sci-Fi Thriller monster smash hit, Armaggedon. You will hear about people being ejected into space by their faces, and turned into paté by meteors, but not everything you hear today will necessarily gel with your understanding of how science or human behaviour I supposed to work.
You will however, learn your survival odds after being jettisoned into space. You’ll learn about your anus and urethra, and how space shuttles, asteroids and even simple geography do and do not work. Special guest stars include a urine soaked Alan Sheppard, John Glenn, Michael Clarke Duncan and Ben Affleck.

In space, no one can hear you scream. But on the launch pad? You can yell, scream, or bleed all you want. No one will hear you there either. For example, on today’s episode, you will find out how rockets work, and how they don’t work. You’ll hear about people vaporized into flaming mists and others faced with a kind of toxic shock syndrome you don’t hear about in commercials. You are going to learn about one of the worst managers in history, and a whole bunch of not-to-do’s about skin care. You’ll learn a few German words for jerks who had it coming. It’s a disaster so stupendous, it changed the course of human history and no one was allowed to know about it.

Buck up, idiots. Today’s episode is almost guaranteed to make your next workplace screw-up seem a little less screwed up. 
This is not normally the podcast you play around kids.or while eating, but today’s episode is different. No blood loss. No body count. What happens in today’s story is unbelievably dramatic, but no one gets their face lazered off, or turned into steam, or crushed to death or any of the horrible endings people face repeatedly through the history of this show. You will learn that math is hard, that gravity don’t care about your feelings, how to survive a fall without going to parachute school, and the best practices for outwitting a lake that is trying to eat you - all with one of the biggest work place screw up stories of all time. There will also be mentions of Joe Jackson - not the one you’re thinking of, Brad Pitt, and Penn & Teller.

In 1917, job and housing markets in the UK were really blowing up. On this episode you will not hear me mispronounce Trinitrotoluene for half an hour, but I’ll probably mispronounce it anyway. You will also hear me describe people losing their heads. Or parts of their heads. Or limbs. Or lives. But definitely bowel control.This is the story of the single largest explosion to ever occur in the United Kingdom - which is saying a lot. Amazingly, because today’s disaster involved the military, no one heard about it for fifty years. It’s the needs of the many vs the needs of the view in this explosive episode of Doomsday.

Of all the ways people throughout history have died while mining, todays will probably be the most “impactful”. This episode recounts the most statistically-unlikely disaster in history, complete with two safety sections, but you’ll also hear about people referred to as gravy without lumps, and flesh described as scattered. You’ll also hear about two Guinness World Records, and a celebrity cameo from Nelson Mandela himself. You will also learn your odds of dying from the random things you spend too much time worrying about. You’ll also learn the best possible way to survive a hypothetical free fall in an elevator, and we have a special safety section covering panic attacks.

Most people wouldn’t think a burp could kill you. By the time you finish this episode, you won’t be most people. This episode has everything: fish farts, exploding lakes, tennis pro Vitas Gerulaitis, ancient African spirits, and a 0.0075% survival rate. You’ll also hear about people’s eyes popping out of their sockets while their skin blisters from within, and others who just drop dead like their strings were cut. But you will also learn how to protect your family against the non-spoiler cause of this disaster. Of course, you may also be left wondering why you never knew the ocean exploded before.

Back in the day before marketing appeared in washrooms, projected on buildings, geo-targeted to your phone and dragged on banners across the sky, people could raise brand awareness by simply blowing things up. This is the story of the worst marketing stunt in American history. With anything, like music or social media or free speech, no form of communication is inherently evil. It all comes down to what you do with it. What will the cast of today’s story do with it? On this episode you will hear about skull fractures, eye gouges, steam burns, people playing catch with flaming metal and showers of boiling water. Celebrity cameos include human monster PT Barnum, Dutch physicist Christiaan Huygens, and singer Susan Boyle.

We’ve talked about the Cold War before. But today we’re going to talk about a very cold war. Just sit back, slice open a Taun Taun, and let’s get into it. We say the only value of any disaster is what can be learned to safeguard people in the future, but in this case it was very much a matter of people dancing on the lip of the volcano. We’re going to talk about a disaster so phenomenal it was erased from history. On this episode we will describe shattered bodies with blue faces, people having their insides turned into their outsides, and pieces of people and equipment intermingled. I will also premiere a secret psychic force I’ve been quietly developing in my down time. Celebrity cameos include Franz Ferdinand and Utzi the Iceman.

According to the NTSB, airplane accidents have a 95.7% survivability rate, and normally that would be great news. Try telling that to the passengers on today’s episode. As promised, we make our inglorious return with a welcome back minisode about the most unlikely plane crash of all time. A disaster so bizarre it actually became the worst case scenario in ICAO Aviation testing. We are headed to Africa to answer the question: what has eighty teeth, bad breath, and sucks at flying. We always endeavour to make you smarter and more aware in a way that could potentially save your life one day, but this episode is just bizarre, even by our standards.

Gratitude. Excrement. Explanations and Updates. This entirely tiny episode has it all!. This minisode is actually my quick and candid explanation for my absence from the microphone - but you’ll also get to hear a quick story about rich people drowning terribly, a few teasers about upcoming episodes, and my promise that we’ll be back on the air before you know it.

Today’s episode is about a disaster so potent it would kill you today as easy as it would kill your descendants 35,000 years from now. And although this episode will be light on actual gore, we will be talking about an awful lot of human organs turning into cancer. But nothing too aggregious. A lot of ignorant but pioneering scientists with brave ideas and bubbling skin had to die for us to learn how dangerous today’s topic can be. Yes, this is another in our on-going series on nuclear mishaps and mayhem. Without spoiling anything, I can say that nuclear bombs have been struck by lightning, survived plane crashes, burned to the point of melting, smashed into the ground at super sonic speeds, dropped from an aircraft parked on a runway, crushed by oceanic depths and blown apart by the missiles they were attached to. If nothing else, it’s a testament to how well they are built and designed.

Today’s episode is basically a Public Service Announcement for future time travellers. Do not go back to Victorian England. Disease, murder, and stink around every corner. It’s hard to overestimate how terrible every facet of life was in Victorian England. On this episode we’re going to learn what it takes to turn a full size adult into a briquette. Why Jane Eyre stunk, and the best way to saw up a dead horse. I’ll give you a hint - time and bacteria work better than cutting tools alone. Work smarter, not harder. Well, would you rather be locked away for life against your will for no good reason and have Jack the Ripper as a cellie, do take your chances trying to escape during the worst fire you’ve ever seen? How many places do you know that have too many clients, spread over too large an area, being cared for by too few staff, with too little money and crumbling infrastructure? Sounds like a recipe for disaster, right? But seriously, we look down our noses at health care from a century ago like we’re so great. We’re not perfect. No one is. But as imperfect as it might be, mental health care has never been better.

On this episode we are going to learn why fighter jets – graceful and aerobatic though they may be – make terrible ground vehicles. You’ll also learn how to say run for your lives in Ukranian. We'll be celebrating unlucky episode number thirteen by describing burning jet fuel and debris spraying into a crowd, and something described as behaving “like a human lawn mower”. We’re considering putting out barf bags for our beloved Doomsday Cult Members, and this is the episode that inspired the idea. So, Air Shows huh? Nothing really funny or fun to say about them. They have a pretty good safety record, but on those rare occasions where something does go wrong, they are pure nightmare fuel..

This episode is a short one but a good one. What it lacks in bloodshed, it will make up for in patriotic razzmatazz and screaming. We are calling this our palate cleanser episode. In this episode you will hear about people screaming for their lives – nothing weird there. You’ll hear cheese grater used as a verb – that’s kind of new. All in all, this is our palate cleanser episode. You could pretty much play this one while eating or around kids – but there is a brief mention of masturbation – so there’s that. Fantastic is defined as imaginative, extraordinary, irrational, wild, absurd, implausible, far-fetched and unbelievable. We promised fireworks, and we hope you’ll agree, today’s story was short but fantastic.

 Paris is the city of lights and when you think of its non-tower based icons, the Moulin Rouge races to mind pretty easily. But Paris is a city with a long and troubled history. This is a place with six million skeletons in their sewer for crying out loud.

 We’re heading to South America to talk about a disaster so spectacular that over a thousand Americans recreate it in their own home every year. In this episode we will describe a deep fryer the size of a department store and flesh dripping from bodies like wax from a candle. In fact, this is the first episode we’ve done that requires two separate safety segments. This was another in our long line of bad-day-at-work stories, but also in the thread of disasters that could not have happened without a series of contributing factors all falling perfectly into line. We really played up fire safety. It’s because this is the first episode where all the ingredients for disaster are right there in your kitchen.

Jean Paul Sartre said Hell is other people, and he’s right. Commuting proves this true. But if you’ve ever been on a train and had someone clip their nails or fall asleep on you, the people of Australia think your complaints are adorable. If you enjoy the bucolic leisure of a train ride and arriving alive, this is not necessarily the episode for you. On this episode we’re going to talk about people awkwardly Tetrised around debris in the most claustrophobic situation possible, and others who compressed to the height of a business card. Fun fact: the actual fear of trains is called Siderodromophobia. Whether your fear is about crashing, or the lack of control, or they trigger other phobias like claustrophobia, social phobia or germ phobia, the easily rememberable and pronounceable Siderodromophobia has got you covered.​​​​​​​

In India you can make prayers to any one of 33 different top tier deities. You may want to. This episode is a bit of a Russian Nesting Doll of suffocation and electrocution and explosions. In this episode we will describe people being electrocuted by goat blood soup. You will hear about an awful lot of death, and explosions, and fire, but don’t worry, because most of the deaths are caused by smothering and suffocation. If you remembered that crowds are more dangerous than sharks, you get a gold star. We are trained to fear things that are scary and flashy, but when you really boil down a disaster like this, its mundane circumstances building on top of each other.

If you Google “worst jobs” you’re going to see things like crime scene clean up and sewer diver, but compared to medieval bell ringer? At least sewer divers can be hosed down. Bell ringers had to be hosed off – like, every surface. In this episode you will hear about people superheating to five times the temperature of the surface of the sun before exploding. You’ll learn what a terrible job TV and movies have done teaching you about explosions, and you’ll also learn how to say stop, drop and roll in latin. I would really like to see the stained glass fresco depicting the events of this story. Also, spoiler, Stop Drop and Roll in Latin is Prohibere, et stilla volmine.

Riddle me this. I make intestines peek out of a belly. I make bone protrude from a fractured shin. I make blood spurt from a gash in the buttocks. What annual sporting event am I? Find out this week on Doomsday: History’s Most Dangerous Podcast. In this episode, you will hear about a man being carried around by a horn stabbed in through his neck and poking out his mouth.

This episode is the disaster equivalent of one of those trick birthday candles that just won’t blow out. So if the idea of close, intimate contact with insects, arachnids and reptiles bothers you, today’s episode will bother you. A lot. In this episode you will hear-tell of a plague of terror being cleared away by cleansing mercy of a volcano and people voluntarily jumping into boiling water, on purpose, because it was the best of all available options. So dear listeners, would you rather: wear a coat of panicked insects and snakes or run with arms outstretched into the face a 1000 F pyroclastic flow? If you want to support the on-going production of the show, you can find us at www.patreon.com/funeralkazoo.

There are over 400,000 caskets in Arlington National Cemetery, but only one is lined with lead, sealed under several feet of concrete and placed in a metal vault just to prevent it from killing you. In this episode we’ll describe the worst groin injury in the recorded history of medical science. You’ll learn how to autopsy a corpse from across a room, and you’re also going to hear Kool-Aid Man and Silkwood Shower both used as verbs. We hope you enjoy our episode on the world’s first peace time nuclear accident and the only fatal nuclear reactor accident in U.S. history. If you want to support the on-going production of the show, you can find us at www.patreon.com/funeralkazoo.
