Airport of the week (around 5 minutes): a story, a tip or a piece of trivia about the airport the episode is named after.
How are the topics chosen?
In a nutshell, they are topics that the authors love.
Whilst the show attempts to cover a large band of aviation news, the focus is mostly on commercial aviation, its industry and the innovation surrounding it.
Curating topics is about making choices: some topics will undoubtedly be left out—Alex and Paul admittedly sometimes struggle to pick and choose a subset of what comes out every week, but it is a good discipline that allows for focus, information and entertainment value.
