A Pleasant Surprise
Found this podcast by two wonderfully entertaining gents from the UK during my Space Summer of 2019. I rewatched From the Earth to the Moon, Apollo 13 and First Man, then listened to the podcast. Andy and Elton are funny and smart and have great insights into the films and episodes.
Not enough expertise
I had to stop the Apollo 13 episode less than halfway in due to the sheer number of inaccuracies in the commentary. For such a niche topic, I expected more research and a solid knowledge base.
This show is an amazing look back at one of the seminal moments in HBO mini series history .
I have been a fan of the Gemini and Apollo programs since I was 8 years old in 1965 .
