  1. I know I’m late in listening to this, but it’s a great episode! Thanks Chris!

  2. Lisa Gordon(Harris) says:

    You do know how to Rock this World!!! Well done Commandar in Chief!!

  3. Vera Schrankung says:

    Every astronaut you guys interview makes me want to be a better person. I’m listening to the audiobook of Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth and somehow, it’s even more amazing than this interview. More Space Cowboys, please…

  4. Nichole says:

    Beautiful description of sunrises from space!

    This podcast was so interesting; especially descriptions of “day-to-day” things in space, like sleeping!

  5. Maija says:

    This is absolutely one of my favorite episodes so far. Thank you!

    Space Oddity can still be good if you just say the words:

    “Ground Control to Baker, Tom …”

  9. Megan says:

    Absolutely loved this podcast! Commander Hadfield simply reinforced my love of space and astronauts! I wanted to go to Space Camp when I was eleven too. Loved the way Chris and Matt engaged with him and kept the conversation moving.

    Just also want to say that I love the podcast. Got to see you guys live at Comic-Con this year and it was a treat! This podcast was perfect – I miss the hostfuls though. Hope to hear one soon.

    As a teacher, when Commander Hadfield talked about how important the arts are in school, and how we need to balance, it made me tear up. With the intense focus on math and reading right now, and with little-to-no time for music and less money for a music/art teacher, this hit very close to home and I hope someone important is listening. We do what we can in class, and I’m going to try even harder now after listening.
    Thanks Chris and Commander. Teachers need this kind of thing.

    I teared up multiple times during this podcast. What a joyful human to have on this planet. I wish more people would invest in human engineering…get rid of all of us useless sods and just use his DNA to procreate lol How useless I feel sitting in my stupid cubicle processing insurance. UUUGGGHH BARFFFF

    I hope he does come back at some point. I want a space burrito!

  12. CAFcomics says:

    What a man. I love these Space chats so much. Thanks chaps 🙂

  13. CSEM says:

    Was I the only one who thought, at first glance, that Tom Lennon went to space?

    I wanted to wait to listen to this podcast at work…but just couldn’t…Chris Hadfield was so rad!

  14. @grim Same here. 😉

    Very much looking forward to this show. Hadfield was one of my best twitter follows ever.

  15. Alec says:

    If you’re going to visit Alberta, go directly to Banff or Jasper so that you can quickly escape to BC.

  16. Jenn says:

    Chris you should come to Canada again! =D *cough-Alberta-cough*

  17. alanso says:

    Yes! I remember asking for a meeting of the two Chrisesses ages ago on the Twitters, excellent.

  18. Liz says:

    “I made a space burrito!”
    That was a great podcast.

    Was I the only one who, at first glance, thought that Chris Hadfield was posing with a laser rifle of some sort?
