18 The Final Frontier

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!
