Enjoyed the episode as always, Nate. Thank you.
How have I just discovered this…and by accident?! Truly one of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to – well written, beautifully presented, unique stories, inspiring.
This was my first episode – I’m now “binge listening”.
Thank you – I’ll be recommending this to everyone I know and supporting you!

LOVE the show. It aggravates me when it ends with no music, no goodbye no nothing. I’ve heard everyone of them. I was introduced to you by SLATE. As many of these as I’ve heard I STILL get mad at the end because there IS no end and I can’t wait for the next one.
I’d love to know what that acoustic song was near the end of the episode.
Reminds me of William Herschel’s sister Caroline, who was one of the great early charters of the night sky.
This reminds me of the anecdote I read about in T-Minus: The Race to the Moon, in which the calculations for the early Soviet moon shots were done by women rather than computers. Nothing wrong with their brains; in fact, better than my own in that respect.
Loved this episode. It made me tear up.
Thank you. Yours is a podcast to be savoured.
