NASA Podcast Show

For the last year, I have listened to every new episode of your show. Gary, you and your fellow podcasters are great interviewers. I have learned so much. NASA should thank you publicly for all the people you have attracted and will bring into the NASA family in the future. The only other thing I wish you would do, is to post a daily update (Walter Cronkite style) talking about how the Artemis is doing and what's next to come. Thank you for all you do...

Great show-but

09-08-2022 (update). Once again a dive into self aggrandizing bureaucrat (with dinosaur DNA) detracts from a great podcast. A whole program of someone who who talks about “I” for the whole program, who brags about reducing program capacity, at the expense of science and greatly benefits commercial interest, is a waste of time. Do better.

I really enjoy the show - but - a whole show devoted to what a great job P.I.O.s are doing I a waste of time. Let your work speak for itself. More Space! More Mars, more future space station…
