Just excellent!

Very entertaining, good podcast about the moon landing and people behind it. Original sound documents paired with interviews with the original engineers and astronauts. Just perfect!

Highly recommended

I recently came across the BBC podcast „13 Minutes to the Moon“ thinking it would be yet another moon landing retrospective documentary, but found it to be an incredibly incisive and emotional view on leadership, teamwork, failure, and success.

Great podcasts

Great insight into the Apollo programme. The author however seems to lack a certain distance to his topic. Therefore no critical questions in this podcasts but glorification of the moon mission.
