Such a great podcast great for all ages
REACH is great for all ages!
I love waking up to this podcast - I really enjoy learning about space, but I must admit that I usually listen for its calm energy and a reminder that there's more going on in the universe than in my little life. Reach has a great balance of keeping information and learning fresh, and it's so cool to hear directly from astronauts and others in the industry! Thanks Brian and Meredith!
