Found this podcast via another podcast called The Infinite Monkey Cage. I first heard of Dr Kevin Fong there too and by gosh is the anything that man hasn’t done. Music great host is great and so are the interviews. If you could do season 3 on sts-1. There’s a story there that not very well known.

When I was a kid I was fascinated by the shuttle program, this pod cast will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

Probably the best podcast
Opdekoeck via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 05/29/20
Superb series. Fantastic technical details matched with life or death drama. Even though you know the outcome the tension is almost unbearable.
Stretch Jr. via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 05/29/20
Great show , I can’t stop listening . I know it’s about something that happened 50 years ago but I’m still sitting on the edge of my seat!!

I have loved both series, but felt compelled to write a review after finishing the second bonus interview with John Aaron. Both this and the interview with Jim Lovell were outstanding. Always very interesting but at times very moving and also hilarious. Two absolute legends.

Fantastic podcast. Riveting
Apollo Heuston via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 05/26/20
Enjoyed the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and thought that was it for the podcast. Was excited to listen to the story of Apollo 13. Great work.

Brilliant fascinating podcast

This podcast has raised the standards for me to listen to other ones great music great narration . Highly recommended for every space nerd and flat earth theorist😅
mengezz via Apple Podcasts · India · 05/24/20
I am compelled to write my very first review on this amazing story. I got chills listening to the recordings and interviews. Truly inspirational!
Camelot C via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/23/20
Not a space geek but this is an incredibly captivating podcast. Informative, fascinating and moving, worth listening to whether the subject initially interests you or not.
cbmadrid via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 05/23/20
Loved Season 1, but Season 2 is more gripping than a tense drama series (even knowing how it all pans out). The clarity of explanation is superb, too.
nking83 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/22/20
Very nice storytelling!
Miguel Corderos via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 05/21/20
I’m not into space etc. But this was brilliant. Series 2 may even be better. Passed it on to my wife. She said the same. Superb interviews, clips and presenter. The characters are brilliant. I’m hooked.
UK PE teacher Sarge via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/19/20
Fantastic podcast. Took a break from the true crime theme and absolutely loved this. Season 1 was amazing and Season 2 even better. No spoilers but the research, attention to detail and awe inspiring music paint such a vivid picture, you can almost close your eyes and see it. Will be amazed if...Read full review »

Both series are just superb. They are beautifully produced, intelligently put together, and utterly compelling. Truly inspiring.
Richard Marles via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/15/20
I just found this podcast recently and it is amazing! As a kid growing up in the 60s the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo astronauts were my heroes. This podcast provides so much insight into the program that I wasn’t aware of. Thank you so much BBC. You are the best.
BW fromTexas via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/15/20
Loved to listen to as I code.
Prakharabhiraj via Apple Podcasts · India · 05/15/20
I love this series, I like the balance of interviews, narration, replays of recordings from the original events and the production/ timing/ music works really well for me. It’s made me a space nerd
DrAnesthesia via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 05/15/20
If you like this please go and watch First Man movie, Apollo 11 on Netflix and Apollo 13 movie all good but what this portrays is factual analysis. Loved it. What could season 3 be about?
UKmanonfire via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/14/20
I have thoroughly enjoyed this podcast and want more! I may have to re-listen as I enjoyed it so much. I listen to it while I work and it makes my time very enjoyable. It’s been about 2 weeks since I wrote the above sentence. I have now listened to both of these whole podcasts twice. The way...Read full review »
Dr. Longfellow via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/20
I’m a project Apollo super nerd, and I love hearing new fragments of info to learn more. This podcast is very well done. My only (picky) critique, is Kevin’s delivery can at times be slightly over-polished and affected, rather than genuine and less formal or conversational. I have incredible...Read full review »
RichieMcFly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/20
Gripping. So honest to the achievements of all involved. But, I’m so desperate for the final of series 2
Sarge!001 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/13/20
Started listening to this walking the dog in the morning. Enjoyed it so much at times the dog got an extended walk so I could finish the episode.
Wellibob66 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/13/20
Thank you for this wonderful podcast. This is amazing!!!
jabedabedoo via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 05/12/20
Believe it or not this is my first foray into the world of podcasts and surely I couldn’t have chosen better! My fascination into the astonishing achievements of the brave space pioneers in the 1960’s was reignited last year after watching the equally magnificent TV documentary ‘Chasing the...Read full review »

I was about 14 years old at the time of the first moon landing. A grammer school student in England. I remember bits of it from TV and reading newspapers. I listened to season1 last year and loved it! Loved the format and the content. Exceptional information you would never have heard back then....Read full review »

This has been one of the best podcasts ever. It’s informative and extremely entertaining. Thank you for putting it all on the record since we are losing so many of our astronaut and mission control pioneers. Their contributions will never be forgotten. Amazing story. Thanks again.
aircathy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/20
Beautifully made (although I could have done without the overly melodramatic music). Highly recommended.
TheRandyManCanCan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/09/20
Learning all over again what a fantastic achievement this journey really was and appreciating it all over again
HK Justice's via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/09/20
This remarkable series brought the wonder and audacity of the whole project - and the size of the achievement home to me for the first time. But just as remarkable, if not more so, is the example of what teamwork and mutual respect for one another’s gifting and expertise can achieve. The bar was...Read full review »

Excellent podcast-production, presentation and content. Well done!

This podcast is just amazing
Maverick129122 via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 05/06/20
I enjoyed this podcast very much! The music, the way it was done, the details…so so so great! I just discovered it „late“, in 2020, so I’m actually late for the party, but I can highly recommend it. Thanks for creating this!
basser_aus_kurpfalz via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 05/06/20
Listening to these podcasts has shown me that mankind is capable of so much if we all pull together, a message that is so relevant at the moment. The dedication and self sacrifice these people displayed to achieve their goal is inspirational, the drama involved in the story telling absolutely...Read full review »

Best podcast I‘ve listened to.
Tim97xyz via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 05/04/20
This is one of the best podcast series I’ve ever heard. Kevin Fong takes us into the nitty-gritty details and especially the human aspects of the astronauts, mission control and others. I listen to each episode at least three times to savour the many details, telling remarks by the astronauts and...Read full review »
massofalc via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/04/20
We all know the outcome, yet I find myself on the edge of my seat... narration and music coupled with interesting interviews and actual real time audio from ground control and space craft make this an entertaining and exciting look at this part of the history of space travel. Wonderful!
RSinMd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/20
This is such a classy production, taking a complex subject and making it both understandable and riveting. Everything about this series is superb; the interviews, music, archive footage, narration, editing...just brilliant. Have only listened to series 1 so far, but can’t wait for Apollo 13....Read full review »

Amazing piece of work. I would love to hear how they made it back to earth though, as it was probably far from trivial!
carpoucapse via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 05/01/20
Wow
I love this one, how the story is presented And the music, very inspiring!
