Excellent Program with Competent Host
I remember listening to the very first episode a few years ago when it came out. It sparked an interest in space for me that has never seized; thank you.
Really informative - great listen
Something to look forward to
I look forward to a new episode every week. In particularly as their are new missions to the moon.
Good amount of detail but clear enough to understand. Keep up the good work
