I love Nasa
❤️ got my good app I really enjoy itWith the experience
I really enjoy the show and usually learn something - but there are times when management types are interviewed, particularly relating to chatting up Houston - get a little old. More about Space!
I really enjoy your podcast. Gary does a great job, and I enjoy hearing from the astronauts. Less so from the management side, as those get a bit dry. You recently had an episode with Mary Jackson, who is a Flight Director. As a compliment to that, I’d love it if you could do an episode with a CapCom.
