Episode 23: RocketMan

rocket-man-movie-poster-1997-1020272728.jpg

We wrap up Katie’s month-long birthday celebration with a favorite movie from her childhood: RocketMan, a space comedy HBO describes as a “zany slapstick farce."
In this episode we compare this to its obvious equivilent, The Martian, google math problems and request info from NASA, learn about Katie's newfound magical butt powers and learn that friends don’t leave friends behind - even when they’re chimps. (Sorry for the loud scratchy noises! Our current recording set up is very good at making blankets sound loud and crunchy. We don't get it, either.)
