Geeks and Beats podcast, episode 278: A vintage (real-life) space battle

Amy Shira Teitel of Vintage Space drops by Studio 3B to tell the story of two female aviators fighting for control of a 1960s NASA astronaut program that did not exist. The space historian and YouTube star’s latest book, Fighting for Space: Two Pilots and Their Historic Battle for Female Spaceflight hit store shelves just in time for COVID19. Awkward.

Plus: the ultimate documentary for 80s Sci-Fi nerds flirts with a million-dollar Kickstarter milestone and why Alan Cross won’t be going back to CES anytime soon.
