Dark Side of the Earth. Amazing

The absolute best shared astronaut experiences. Not how water stays in balls and pissing in diapers. Profound views of a Earth and what it is really like out there.

Great Execution

The sound design, constructed narrative, and exploration of ideas on this podcast are just amazing. The episodes aren't segmented or dry like a lot of information based audio content. Pick an episode featuring a topic you are interested in, sick back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

Amazing show, but why limit episodes?

Everything about this show deserves 5 stars. One of the most interesting, well-produced, consistently enjoyable shows I have heard.

However, I can’t in good conscience give a show 5 stars that deletes episodes as new ones are released. Especially, as in the case of this one, when old episodes are still available to be downloaded from the show’s website. I spent the better part of a day downloading old episodes, adding them to iTunes, entering the title and release date for each one (so they will sort and show up properly in the list), and syncing them to my phone. Maybe there is a reason why only 150 episodes are available here, but if so, I don’t understand why.
