    Full shownotes: www.80dayspodcast.com/apollo-8 | Support: www.patreon.com/80dayspodcast |

    In this minisode, Mark takes us further than we've ever been before, in a story that's out of this world! From Houston, Texas, in 1968, we tell the story of the USA's space programme and how Christmas came to be the backdrop to the first voyage by humans around the moon. Often overshadowed by Apollo 11's Moon Landing a few months later, Apollo 8 laid vital foundations, and took place during the festive season, watched by millions of families around the world.

    Hosts are Luke (@thelukejkelly), Mark (@markboyle86) and Joe (@anbeirneach). A list of music used is in the shownotes on our website. From all of us at 80 Days, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Hunger for adventure: Satisfied

I found this podcast whilst deep in the bowels of Reddit and have since binged through a season and a half between two lonely 7 hour drives; it is quite possibly the only thing that kept me sane during this time. I am consistently surprised by each episode and wholeheartedly plan to listen to every episode out and every one that will come out. As someone who finds myself often lost in the Wikipedia page of a random country, this podcast is everything I could dream of in learning about the intricacies of a people's culture and home. As a broke college student this is about as close to world travel as I can do. I am beyond thrilled to keep listening and will definitely share with anyone/everyone, these guys deserve it!
