The Final Frontier
Play • 2 hr 2 min

Houston, we have a problem. 99 problems actually but this episode ain't one!

Amateurs, prepare for launch as Caitlin delivers a flyby and a deep dive on all things space. Contextualizing space as the one of the few remaining places for human exploration and discovery while sipping on the ultra boozy Blue Galaxy cocktail, this episode is a blast!

Let's look up, wonder, wander, get lost in the sauce of the great unknown and have some belly laughs along the way.
