"(Season 2) Don’t come for a critical look at SpaceX, but instead for behind the scenes access to the crew and the mission itself. Yes, the entire thing was funded by a billionaire, but the three additional crew arrived via different means, none of which had to do with money. Hearing their experience is what made this a really interesting listen. Dr Sian Proctor is the most compelling to me for many reasons, but of course I really love that she makes space art."

"In his new series, Jonathan Swan, Axios reporter from that much-memed Trump interview, gives a blow-by-blow account of the collapse of Trump’s presidency with unprecedented access and tantalising detail. From the former President’s Covid diagnosis and his election night party, right up until the insurrection at the Capitol, Swan traces a fascinating and infuriating tick tock of the last days of one of the world’s most divisive leaders."
