Listen as we tell the story of the Titanic—its celebrated construction, employing thousands during difficult times, its sailing and final plunge to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean.

Few know that the Titanic’s plunge into the frigid Atlantic was predicted more than a decade before the disaster. In a strange twist of fate, the author inadvertently foretold his own death. He was onboard the Titanic when it sank in April 1912. Join us as we share insights about a well-known story that might change your viewpoint of that fateful date with destiny.
