On this installment of our special series, the Media Mavens meet up Christopher M. Mick, the Nasa Solar System Ambassador. Holding a lifelong love for space travel and unraveling the many mysteries of space, Christopher M. Mick’s interest dates all the way back to his own childhood from experiences like space camp and winning science fair competitions. One of Mick’s current projects involves NASA’s delve into exploration projects, including the Perseverance rover, a car-sized Mars rover designed to help bring the next step of space travel. With the Mavens team, Mick discusses the Perseverance’s features, growing accessibility to space travel, and the work of getting the younger generation interested in this vital part of humanity’s future. “The robotic missions are great, but I think they get much more interested when there’s astronauts involved, and there's people they can talk to…that really connects to the kids,” Mick explained. Tune in this week to learn about “Life Beyond the Solar System” and how NASA is helping us reach the future!

Dr. Death

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
