Why does the host keep saying her Ts as Ds? It’s tiTan, mounTain, and curTain.

I just re-listened to the first podcast I ever listened to, but also probably my favourite - Moonrise. 13 minutes to the moon is great and all, but it’s very much the ‘how’ of what for humans to the moon. (13 minutes was my second podcast listen lol). Moonrise looks much more at the why, the...Read full review »

I learned about Lilian Cunningham from American History Tellers last prohibition podcast and looked her up. Found she had done Moonrise, which I had listed to, learned from and enjoyed years ago. I’m bing listening to her all her Constitutional - it’s great- and when I’m done I do all 44?...Read full review »

I'm so glad I found this podcast! I thought I had a pretty decent knowledge of the whole history around rockets, competing with the Russians, etc. but this brought my knowledge space to a whole new level with such detail that it just blew me away.Read full review »

All of her podcasts are so intriguing!

I was pointed to this podcast while listening to Field Trip and, being an amateur astronomer with a keen interest in space, gave it a listen and what an outstanding podcast series! The research, writing, editing and presentation result in an informative and entertaining piece of investigative...Read full review »

Really enjoying the story. Very interesting. I find the reporter’s tone a challenge. Slow, disinterested and a lot of pausing between words in an manner that is distracting.

Really clear and in-depth storytelling. I enjoyed it so much
ellemac via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/23
Agree with other review. This tries to hard. Good idea but ultimately just becomes annoying. Just tell the story!
lrhhrl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/06/23
From filling Lillian from Presidential, Constitutional, to Moonrise. She’s gotten more and more comfortable with herself and Moonrise shows it! Love the production, information and how she tells the story! Can’t wait for the next thing she does 👀

I’m not a huge science buff but I absolutely LOVED this podcast! It was very interesting and there were many moments that made me yearn for more…(almost every episode!) I would definitely recommend you giving it a listen! :)

I love all things space especially the space race. There are just a lot of things you got wrong. I really wanted to like this podcast but there is too much mis-information.

With the new 2022 goal to launch Artemis. I was looking for more background Found this excellent series.
lmcb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/22
The most banal, stupid podcast I’ve ever come across. Worth listening to because it demonstrates how low the standard of podcast narrative has become. It’s over the top superlatives, overly dramatic music track and desperate attempt to weave a dramatic plot out of nothing is brilliantly bad. Do...Read full review »

It is one of the best podcasts ever thank you so much!😃

Uses forgotten secrets of “radio” to tell a great story. Incredibly enjoyable listening for this listener.

I was 13 years old when Apollo 11 landed. I was watching it at the home of a relative who was involved with planning a Mars landing program. I was also able to watch the Apollo 13 launch. We were across a stretch of water on a beach. I very vividly remember feeling the vibration of those huge...Read full review »

Love it, love it love it. I’ve listened to it over and over and always learning something new. So much detail that you would never have known if it wasn’t for this teams hard work. Love the way it’s read and truly enjoy the pauses, very well narrated. Lillian Cunningham’s voice is a pleasant calm...Read full review »

Fantastic production and very well written. Makes me inspired for our own future in space, Mars and beyond.
Pavlo_laroty via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/18/22
This podcast takes itself way too seriously. I really wanted to learn about this topic, but the distracting and unnecessary sound effects, pregnant pauses, etc…, made it annoying and impossible for ME to finish.
cdarwinj via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/22
I have now listened to this in successive years to find it even more approachable and rewarding. Cunningham followed her discoveries throughout the series taking you along with a broad diagnosis of history of the time, history felt today, bonus of an atmospheric presence the music leaving you...Read full review »

This show is by far an amazing masterpiece. I listened it more than once. The audio design and the narrative are designed to take you into a wonderful era. I loved it and i wish i could rate it more than 5 stars. Well done!
Desert Vessel via Apple Podcasts · United Arab Emirates · 08/13/21
The information in this podcast is so well researched and very captivating, but I couldn’t get over how dramatic and over-produced everything was. So many awkward pauses. And the sound effects were almost annoying.
kvanstrom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/11/21
The sound effects and music weaved throughout are SO well done
emily's nickname is emily via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/21
If you live space and NASA and all things of that realm, you must listen to this podcast. Educational, great history and background, well produced and reported. Just excellent all around. It’s both gritty and realistic about the darker side of politics, but somehow remains a little bit hopeful by...Read full review »

What an amazing podcast! Felt like I was reliving the entire odyssey.
KCinel via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/24/21
I didn’t know much about the the race to the moon, other than just the regular high level info everyone has … this podcast was so interesting and well done. I really enjoyed this!
lstebbins via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/21
Lillian Cunningham has done it again. First, she explored every president in “Presidential” (2016), then followed that up with “Constitutional” (2017), an examination of different aspects of the Constitution, its origins and its lasting effects. With “Moonrise” (2019), timed to start during the...Read full review »

Listen to Moonrise with a good pair of headphones and you’ll forget where you are.
Garnet n Pearl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/27/21
I saved this podcast when it was released to listen to ASAP, just as I did with dozens others 🤦🏻‍♀️ so it took me a while to get to it and albeit super late, I’m loving it. I love all the archival interview, there’s something very powerful about hearing the main characters’ voices. I love all...Read full review »

Insightful and well done
WMWDM via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/16/21
This Podcast is very interesting. We get to see the topic of the space race under a new light. All the people involved, both in the US and in the USSR. But the most interesting to me was the sci-if background to the space race and how it related to US in the ‘60s,
hangsangreading via Apple Podcasts · Portugal · 03/08/21
I couldn’t find enough glowing words to explain how well researched, written and produced this series is!
California Grandad via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/21
Well done! Very informative!
BDRJGuenther via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/21
This podcast is very well done and is great from start to finish. Any person who loves history will enjoy this and appreciate the work that went into its production.
Frank A. B. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/21
Very informative and well done. But the host loves to drop into vocal fry musch to often.
EdHow via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/06/21
As a space geek, I greatly enjoyed the history. VonBraun, Kennedy’s speech, LBJ, all the historical context around those people and events was wonderfully. I dropped the podcast a star because of the over done frame as well as the agenda of the WP. Equal rights and discrimination were...Read full review »

Fantastic historical podcast. Brings together so many interesting aspects of 20th Century world history. This podcast is a knock out. Fun and entertaining as hell. A rewarding listen.
JSires via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/26/20
Most stories about the race to the moon start in the early sixties, or the late fifties at best. This surprising podcast takes it way back to the thirties and describes why and how key-figures got involved in space-exploration. Very interesting and surprising. Changed my prejudiced relation to...Read full review »

Very interesting
ChemistofBerkeley via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/01/20
Superbly conceived, researched, and produced. Stitched together so many of my own experiences and life long interests (science fiction, politics, space exploration, raw courage) into a narrative that I couldn’t see in its entirety until now. Thank you!!

That was great... I’ve just listened to the whole podcast for the second time. Well done. From Villiersdorp South Africa.
Les Bush via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 09/11/20
As someone born in ’63, I find it fascinating. So much more behind the Kennedy speech.
DACason via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/21/20
After listening to this podcast twice, I highly recommend it as a companion piece to BBC’s 13 Minutes to the Moon. This expands the narrative focus to include many moments of cultural context behind the moon landing, such as Sci-Fi and the turbulent 60’s. The host’s enthusiasm comes across in her...Read full review »

Loved this podcast. For someone that grew up watching any movie I could find on the space race this was a real treat.
Gianni Vinarosso via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/12/20
Waaaay overproduced with unnecessary dramatic overload. Great reporting but didn’t need to make it sound as there was a conspiracy behind every rock. Music was weird, full of pregnant pauses making you think the episode ended, and modulation of sound needed work. Having said that there are...Read full review »

I couldn't stop imagining JFK looking into the beady eyes of the puppy as the background fades into a fiery nightmare of failing rocket launches with drunken Russian laughter echoing in the distance. No idea what i'm talking about? Have a listen and at some point, you'll see it too 🤣Read full review »

One of the best podcasts I’ve listened to. Wish there were more like these. Great journalism, great storytelling. And the host is incredible. She brings it all together to life.

I’ve not listened or watched as well done a program, memoir, biography or analysis of the race to the moon! I’m 57, an Apollo kid and now an Artemis grandparent. I’ve followed NASA and as a teacher helped my students to employment at NASA and other aerospace companies. I have been to JSC, KSC and...Read full review »
