Life Lessons | Passionate, moving and beautifully written

I have had the MOST wonderful time listening intently to the hours and hours of this podcast. Indeed listening to some of it more than once!

Hearing the passion and dedication, the concert of coordination and teamwork, the leadership and calmness displayed by all those in high-stakes decision-making roles brought tears to my eyes on numerous occasions.

I am floored by this podcast - the very best of storytelling, content delivery, and learning rolled into a few hours of concentrated reliving of history.

Really well done. Thank you.

Needs editing

Needs a lot of editing and tightening. Lots of repetition and empty music, and irrelevant interviews, e.g. reactions to the moon landing. Interviews included should support a tighter storyline. The podcast should inform and inspire, not bore. I feel I wasted several hours of my life listening to most, not all, episodes.
