Podcast: Taxi Capsule Confidential

We hail a space taxi, and we find the absolute best moment of the Kentucky Derby. Also, we learn about the most awesome ring in, or out, of the world, and question why on earth someone wouldn’t want one just like it. And, did the Russians just flat out copy our late, lamented space shuttle back in the 1980s? (Spoiler alert: Yes, they certainly did.)
