Spectacular

Wow! It astounds me that I never knew the story behind the Apollo 13 mission. I love anything space and our space program and let this slip past. Honestly, these men should have a day set aside in honor. Sean Brady tells this riveting account of this mission with such clarity that keeps you captivated throughout. They had guts! Anyone would’ve melted down under the pressure. For sure. Don’t miss this fantastic pod!!
