Love this podcast

I’ve always enjoyed learning about space history, and this podcast does an excellent job of presenting a chronological record of how it all progressed. I’m starting at the beginning (you can find all episodes at spacerockethistiry.com). I love the fact that you get whole episodes on something that might otherwise be just a footnote in history - I’ve learned so much and I’m only 20 episodes in. It’s well researched and well presented. Thank you, Michael!
