This is perfect.

There is podcasting and then there is this. BBC changes the game of podcasting with this riveting and extremely beautifully produced series, immaculately presented and firmly guided by Kevin Fong. Resting on a bed of Hans Zimmer’s incredible soundscapes and scoring, this podcast makes you see images clearer than your eyes ever will. Never have static noice and poor radio recordings been this terrifying and exhilarating at the same time. Kevin Fong, Hans Zimmer and the incredibly talented BBC crew have made a 50 year old event an absolute breathtaking 2019 highlight.

What a time to be alive; To get to listen to this level of sound production for free.

This podcast sounds like nothing from earth. But then again, it was never meant for earth.
