The Mission Readiness Review–Episode 3: Learning about the Birds and the Bees

This site contains my opinions and ideas only, not the opinions or ideas of any organization I work for. It’s my idea playground, and I’m inviting you in. Welcome!

Hello everyone!

This is the third episode of TMRR.

We are moving away from SoundCloud to Podbean, which is why the link looks a little different. Nothing wrong with SoundCloud, but Podbean has a much better podcast plan.

If you like the podcast and find it useful, please go ahead and just let anyone, who you think might be interested in TMRR topics, know about it.

Thanks again for listening. Just click on the immediate link below to get the episode.

This episode, we learn of a plethora of launches this Thursday; that Skynet begins with animals; plus, a secret satellite AND a secret startup’s rocket launch?

The Mission Readiness Review–Episode 2: It Will Be the BEST space force!

This site contains my opinions and ideas only, not the opinions or ideas of any organization I work for. It’s my idea playground, and I’m inviting you in. Welcome!

Hi folks! Here’s the second try at a podcast. It’s louder, I think, which addresses the main complaints. But now I’m noticing the heater going on in the background, one Google Home interruption, and my tendency to say “um”–a lot. I’ll work on it, I promise.

This episode: We turn it up to the 11, The President has the best idea, and ULA realizes there’s a commercial space launch industry.

The Test Demo of “The Mission Readiness Review”

This site contains my opinions and ideas only, not the opinions or ideas of any organization I work for. It’s my idea playground, and I’m inviting you in. Welcome!

And the little caveat above applies double for the podcast link below.

Yes, a podcast. An audio podcast (for now). I figured we would give this a shot. I’m calling it “The Mission Readiness Review.” It’s Episode 1: On orbit BEES, Earthly troubles.

Here’s how it’s described: The Mission Readiness Review is a weekly update of space industry activities we find interesting. It may well be the only MRR you’ll ever want to listen to.

So, this is the demo. It’s the beginning of a weekly thing. We hope you like it. I had fun making it. Pretty sure my wife did, too.

P.S–it’s 19 minutes long

P.P.S–not really new information about the SpaceBees on SpaceNews.com today: http://spacenews.com/industry-worried-about-regulatory-backlash-after-unauthorized-cubesat-launch/. Still just conjecture with no one coming forward.
