While I do find the topics interesting and the hosts likeable it does fall a bit too much in the Elon's fanboy camp, at least for my taste.

hey guys. Really enjoy the show. I skipped passed the first 20 minutes or so because it was the politicised 'Opinion' section of the newspaper. I have a feeling we may agree with what was said, but for others you might want to consider withholding the 'Letter to the Editor'. Thanks for what you do!

Hi, great podcast! Just wanted to mention to your why dont they just use rocket engines which use the atmosphere of the earth. Currently there is a engine under development which does exactly this. It is called SABRE(synergetic air breathing rocket engine). Greetings

Wasn't the seismometor the instrument that picked up the "sound"? I wasn't aware that they brought a microphone.

Great job! Thanks to Tim Dodd for plugging this on his YouTube channel, I was able to find Our Ludicrous Future and subscribe. I'm looking forward to catching up on the rest.
