Could be the best.BUT...

Could be great if only it didn’t have that synth drone thro ALL of it! Your guest speakers say great stuff..they don’t need that. I can’t listen to this podcast because of that corny synth. Is it supposed to make me feel ‘spacey’ or something?

I’m worried about the moon core temperature because cold iron would be magnetic and the moon orbits inside earths magnetic field. the moon core might have cooled a bit since the Apollo era? 🤔🤒😧
