My fave podcast!

Always look forward to a new episode! Great job, Gary. 🚀 A few requests / ideas if you need any for future episodes:

- astronaut training from beginning to end

- sitting down with Bob & Doug & having them go over their entire mission from lift off to landing

- life after a long term missions on the ISS

- an interview with a student from the new Artemus program

- interview with Elon Musk about plans for Mars

Thank you for making this podcast!! ✨
