About this Episode

Today's episode is a bit different than what I've done before. The mission audio from Alan Shepard's historic flight plays for the duration of the episode, with my historical notes during the first half of the episode. The last part of today's podcast is just mission audio, the short suborbital flights for Project Mercury are the perfect length for podcasts. Enjoy! :)
