Great premise

This is a truly outstanding podcast. Kevin Fong was just the right person to tell this story with insight into the technical and physiological aspects of the Apollo project. Using the final thirteen minutes of the descent was a great was to frame the story. I’ve listened to it twice and will probably listen again. Another BBC gem!

Brilliant then and today!

I’m partway through this incredible story and storytelling. There are things that amaze you and things I have shared as leader of teams today. Not just for history or space buffs - there are elements for leaders, team members, entrepreneurs and many others.

I cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you for this work!

Extraordinary Scientific Storytelling

I couldn’t have wished for a better dive into this fascinating moment in history and all the steps that got NASA there.
