13 Minutes to the Moon - Wow! What an Auditory ride!

I found Kevin Fong’s podcast late, but have absolutely fallen in love with it. It took me back to age 7 and my own memories of that never to be forgotten day. This is an outstanding piece of work and one of the best histories of the moon landing I have ever heard.

I learned many new facts and I very much enjoyed his interviews with various astronauts and members of mission control. His breakdown of the final 13 minutes it took Armstrong and Aldrin to land in the moon was mesmerizing, as was his wrap up segment at Rice University in Houston.

If he were to undertake a comprehensive podcast of manned space flight I suspect that listening to something like that would take me to the moon. I would recommend this podcast to anyone who is interested in the history of manned space flight and the Apollo program in particular. My hat’s is off to both Mr. Fong and his producer, Andrew Luck Baker. Thank you again for the experience

I love it ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

If you wanted to learn about the landing on the moon, this is the perfect podcast. I remember hearing this on American public media and I loved it right away. It interested me in astronomy. Now I listen to this podcast all the time.
