Fantastic and informative

Thanks guys for putting together such a great show each an every week. I’ve been listening for almost a year now and have learned so much. I started out knowing very little about space flight and bit by bit you have been helping me fill in the enormous gaps in my knowledge. I appreciate how you keep it fun and engaging even for those of us with little to no knowledge. A must subscribe for anyone with an interest in space exploration.
