Podcast: The Lusitania Sank in just 18 Minutes, Beating Titanic

The British ocean liner RMS Lusitania was struck by a German U-boat torpedo in May of 1915, and sunk within sight of the Irish coast in just 18 Minutes! Compare that to the rather luxurious sinking of the Titanic three years earlier in 1912 that lasted 2 hours and 40 minutes. We have all seen the popular Titanic movie, so just imagine our two protagonists, Rose and Jack, having just 18 minutes to escape the massive sinking ship.
