Best Space Podcast
Best space podcast I’ve ever listened to! So please continue to produce! Thank you so much!
Great Content Annoying Host
We don’t need to hear the host say cool, how about that, ok, hmm, oh, and interrupt these people all the time. The podcast is to listen to the brilliant minds at NASA speak. Why does the host do all this stuff...not to mention the non-funny jokes. Also why does he try to restate what they say in an often unclear sometimes wrong way?
