Title: 13 Minutes to the Moon
Url: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w13xttx2
Publisher: BBC World Service
Description: In honor of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 this July, the BBC World Service has produced this in-depth podcast series detailing "the dramatic, definitive story ... about the men and women who reached for the moon." 13 Minutes to the Moon explores the lead-up to the first human visit to the moon through interviews with the scientists, programmers, engineers, and astronauts involved in the mission and the overwhelming feeling of relief and accomplishment after the landing. The podcast, which is comprised of twelve episodes, "is the story of how the final 13 minutes of Apollo 11's journey to the moon was a success," but also explores what events happened in the decade before the mission in order to make one of the defining moments of the 20th century actually happen. The first episode, "We Choose to Go," kicks off with President John F. Kennedy's speech at Rice University in Houston, TX announcing his vision in sending astronauts to the moon, thus further heightening the competition between the US and the Soviet Union in the Space Race. 13 Minutes to the Moon is hosted by Kevin Fong with theme music produced by Hans Zimmer. Episodes can be downloaded from the link above or accessed on your favorite podcast app.
