Older episodes hold up well

The earlier episodes often give introductions to topics in a way that normal people can understand. If you are interested n space and related subjects, then you can listen to these primers, get entertained and informed, and have a significant backlog of episodes that are still relevant. Plus, new episodes keep you up to date on recent developments.

A Garbage Podcast

Factually incorrect, & shamelessly so. A complete waste of time.
