Welcome to When It Goes Wrong, the podcast about disasters, accidents and when things fall apart. On this episode I discuss The Donner Party - the group set off to hike the Oregon Trail in 1846 - this is always a hard journey, but in this case they were struck by bad luck, wrong directions, accidental deaths and eventually being stuck in the frozen mountains for 3 months awaiting rescue. This would result in the deaths of almost half the party and the choice of whether to eat the dead.
