Outstanding

Loved the way the team behind this show broke down the story from so many angles. Really made the 13 minutes come alive. Fantastic show.

Absolutely Awesome, Not Perfect

This podcast was absolutely awesome to listen to, as the title suggests. I am writing this as my first review of anything because of how much I enjoyed it. It pulls together awesome parts of history, especially oral stories by people who were there and a very careful selection of audio clips. Additionally, the research is very extensive and is incredibly informative, not only from a technical standpoint, but also from a human standpoint. It has a great pace and all the right information.

However, I was not a fan of the overly loud music, and there were times that I felt the interviews should’ve been played out more. Nothing beats the words of the people who were actually there. Other than that, fantastic.

Extraordinary😍❤️

I've watched and listened to many movies, documentaries, YouTube videos and podcasts on stuff relating to space exploration and specifically the Apollo missions for their heroic adventure and turning the impossible into a reality..... But nothing, absolutely nothing comes close to the amount of excitement, aspiration, appreciation and awesomeness this podcast offers❤️
The story telling, the music and the whole theme of the podcast is just 10/10
Thanks BBC🙏🏻
