Team, I simply CANNOT express how I appreciate what the team has done to portray happenings of both the Moon Landing, as well as the shenanigans of Apollo 13. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou.... Love, love, love... I am aware of so much of the Gemini and Apollo missions in particular, and the era of "the right stuff", and it is always with pride that I know it was truly a global escapade, that even Australia had such a huge involvement with. Thankyou BBC World Service team... You utterly rock!! What next? Challenger? Columbia? The last flight of the Shuttle?.. Wishing the team the very best..... Catelyn.... ❤

If anybody wants to listen to big hacking stories go to Darknet Diaries. This episode from BBC might be nice but why it's delivered like SPAM? :/ Also these shows are overproduced :/

Nothing to do with space as far as I can tell - seems a bit keen to be suggesting this episode as part of the 13 minutes to the moon brand (which was excellent)

This podcast series has been fascinating. I've been binge listening, and love hearing about this great accomplishment from the people who lived it. Particularly liked the episode about the onboard computer design and build. Well done, and the music is great.

loving the show but every in every single episode youll be listening to a story and either it will skip ahead or go back and repeat what you've just heard. It's not my app as im watching the clock when this happens. its becoming very frustrating as this is not an isolated issue.

I was very excited about the podcast. But repeating voice snippets (Including, but not limited to, president shouting) which are meant to hype up gets too old when you're watching a epsiode by epsiode podcast. Giving up on this!

a great podcast. if you're interested in space stuff, this has a better level of detail than most mainstream documentaries and a fabulous cast of Apollo people assembled to talk-sometimes pretty candidly-about their part in history. loved it
