Our obsession with space travel has always gone hand in hand with pop culture. Space shows up in the books we read, the music we listen to, and TV and movies we watch.
In this episode of Pop Cultured, we talk about the ways pop culture is influenced by space and the ways space travel is influenced by pop culture. We also get into Hollywood's moonshots with a few upcoming projects that aren't just about space, they’re made in space.
You’ll hear from:
Dr. Teasel Muir Harmony, curator of the Apollo Spacecraft Collection, professor at Georgetown University and author of Apollo to the Moon: A History in 50 Objects.
Eric Kohn, New York–based Executive Editor & Chief Critic at IndieWire.
