We're back and it's 2023. Let's kick off the year with an episode discussing some of my favorite books I read last fall. There's a bit of SpaceX news at the beginning too, so give it a listen.
I'd love if you could support the work I do here by checking out my website, Starlight and Gleam. Thank you for listening and I appreciate the support!
