This episode is about attempts to make things safer that actually make things worse. The episode focusses on the work of two specific authors, Edward Tenner (Why Things Bite Back: Technology and the Revenge of Unintended Consequences) and Lisanne Bainbridge (The Ironies of Automation). There are examples throughout the episode, but the main case studies are China Air 006 and the New Orleans Hurricane Protection System.
