Remarkable must listen series

This is a terrific series that goes into great detail about the very young and talented men and women behind the scenes that made the Apollo missions possible. If I were king this series would be required listening for ALL high school seniors!

Wow!

Episode 6 - Saving 1968. Wow!

All the episodes are very good and worth the listen, but Episode 6 was outstanding. Especially the portion leading to and the broadcast of the words of the Apollo 8 Crew on Christmas Eve.

Great Interviews and Insight

I absolutely love the show. Just discovered it thanks to an inclusion on a “Best Podcasts of the Year so far” and I have been binging since. Looking forward to listening to the rest of the podcast. Great work
