Geeks and Beats podcast, episode 282: The first woman in space

The United States might have put a man on the moon first, but it was the Russians who first sent a woman to space. The Vintage Space star and author Amy Shira Teitel joins the geeks this week on a supporters-only livestream recording session and Q&A about Valentina Tereshkova, a woman 20 years ahead of her US counterparts.

Amber wrote a great piece on the subject, too.

And look at this! We captured the episode on video! But then Michael included a clip of Steve Carrell and we got nailed for copyright infringement.
