Space kills time once again

A great listen for the space enthusiast.
Note: The best ones are the interviews of experts in the field who give great mini classes for the average listeners.
Feature request: weekly updates on the latest in various space agencies, like on 9to5mac

Interesting podcast

I have no interest in space or rockets, but this podcast is very interesting to listen and learn from. Zac does a great job at bringing this interest to the masses without making you feel too uninformed or in the dark.
