Thoroughly enjoyed!

Enjoy the way each moment is dissected, analysed and explained. Great podcast series and the music is just beautiful too. Well done!

Great story. The music at times was a bit too much. More interviews less Zimmer.

Simply inspiring

It’s easy to believe the moon missions were easy and to dismiss or ignore the work required to get there.

If you’ve ever worked in creating anything - from a nice meal, to building a house, to building launching and supporting products - then you’ll feel the familiarity of challenge and the pain these people went through

Truly interesting listening, without the gung-ho backdrop of ‘we’re no 1’

Listening to the full 13 minute landing in episode 11, after having been led up to this point through the series, is truly cool.
