Episode 41 - Roscosmos Shoulda Bought Bitcoin

This month, Anthony and Jake are taking it bit easier. It’s summer, everyone is excited about getting back in to the world again, and space news will be winding down a bit. It’s just the two of us, and we go through a potpourri of topics from random space stories that have caught our attention, some stray conspiracy theory talk, then talk shop about our plans for the show, our work, our lives, and more.

Episode 32 - Well Within the Kill Zone

Jake and Anthony are joined by Lord British himself, Richard Garriott de Cayeux. Richard is a storied video game designer/developer, an entrepreneur, an astronaut who flew to the ISS for a week, and an adventurer with so many tales it’s hard to keep up. Richard is also the son of Owen Garriott, a NASA astronaut who flew on Skylab II and STS-9. Richard joins us to talk about growing up as the son of an astronaut, to tell tales of spaceflight and undersea adventures, to ruminate on the commercial spaceflight industry, and to blow our minds with stories of dodgy Russian safety protocols. Also, our fundraiser is over and we’ve made a significant impact on two organizations working hard to bring racial equity to STEM and space. We raised nearly $35,000!
