109 – Planetary Society with Danielle Gunn pt. 1

Danielle Gunn (@DanielleRGunn) is the communications manager at the Planetary Society and also a delightful human being who is fascinated with space, our exploration of it, and what we already know about it. Join in with some Double Nut Brown from Mammoth Brewing to hear how she ended up in her position and what we might be up to next in the world of space exploration. A chat with Non Wels starts things off.

Music at the end from Tom Petty with Runnin’ Down a Dream.

The Planetary Society

If you are unfamiliar with the Planetary Society, please visit their site and familiarize yourself a bit. Not only will you be more connected to Carl Sagan (and Bruce Murray and Louis Friendman), but you’ll potentially be on the front end of helping to make sure that exploration continues. This story about the Pluto fly-by will give you a better idea of just how integral society — and the Planetary Society in particular — can be in making sure that budgets and red tape don’t get in the way of exploring the universe we live in. And you can become a part of it by joining. What are you waiting for?
