Hear from the Space Advocates!

The Planetary Society has been advocating for astronomy, space exploration, and related science since 1980. Their podcast is a great way to tune into the pulse of the state of space! The hosts are extremely knowledgeable yet still very personable. This is a great way to learn about everything related to space, and to know how to support space exploration.

Just Great!

I’m always excited to listen. Matt Caplin is outstanding at presenting space and technology information with genuine enthusiasm. Unfortunately there’s been more of Casey Drier lately, who comes across as an arrogant hack only interested in money and politics. I usually skip his segments or delete the show if it’s just him. And I can’t not mention Bruce, awkward yes, but awesome space facts!

Awesome podcast from an awesome organization

So cool to hear straight from the thinkers & doers in the study & business of outer space. One of my all-time favorite podcasts.
