Must listen for hardcore space nerds and casual ethiusits alike.

I'm actually going back to their website to start at episode one because it is abosutley worth listening to David and Ben go over various space related topics (the Manipulators episode is an early highlight).

If you're interested in space, especially the hardware, you can't skip this podcast. I only wish I had found them sooner.

Not Always Well Researched

Frustrating to listen to this podcast when they aren’t up to date and accurate on the subject matter. It is easy to monitor twitter/reddit/NSF these days to compile a better understanding of the happenings in space. This podcast should deliver best available accuracy but it does not.

Best Space Podcast

One of my favorite parts of the week is getting to listent to this podcast. Fun, Positive, and very informative about current space flight events. The new Data Relay segment is also awesome teaching about various parts of spaceflight in great detail. Awesome show!
