A portion of this show was very last minute. Like, 15 minutes to air there was an idea and we went with it.
This episode was recorded on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing. And weâ€™re all very big fans of that and space exploration in general so to mark the occasion we play an interview done in 2008 with one of only 12 men ever in the history of all mankind to set foot on the moon, Charlie Duke. It has absolutely no ties to video games whatsoever, but we donâ€™t care. And we hope you donâ€™t either. As was said back then:
None of us on the show can really express what it was like to talk with Mr. Duke or even have him on the show. It is an experience not a single one of us will ever forget. He tells us of his experience with NASA and his time spent on the moon as well as traveling to it plus his return to Earth. What is it like to re-enter Earthâ€™s atmosphere? Whatâ€™s it like to stand within such a magnificent desolation? To see the dark side of the moon and to witness an Earth-rise. Charlie Duke tells us of those things along with many others (cosmic rays penetrating the eyeballs, anyone?).
