Loved EPISODE 10

Thanks so muchh for these great podcasts… they’re priceless.

I’d like to know if astronauts have notice a new perspective about life on earth after their missions… I mean in their regular day-to-day activities… like of they sometimes just look up the sky and remember things from space

Phenomenal

Simply inspiring, fascinating, and well told. For me, this podcast just highlights the incredible abilities, instincts, and natural curiosity of humans which is often forgotten or easily shadowed. I just love this - it gives me zest for life.

Production suggestion

Yay, new season! To the engineer if you are using a de-esser on the narrator’s voice, maybe raise the threshold?
