Just want to add this is a very good podcast. I've learned a few things, such as the need for acceleration to get a fuel reading on the powered descent, as well as the reason Eagle landed long.

Great stuff.

It is stunning. The content and production are both top notch. Add to that a 'podcast' with a Hans Zimmer podcast.
