“It’s Been 50 Years Since Apollo 12 Landed On The Moon” by Geoff Brumfiel. NPR Morning Edition. (Listen time: 3 minutes)
The heroics and success of the Apollo 12 moon mission were overshadowed by the Vietnam War and other geopolitical events. Apollo 12 sounds like the most “Guardians of the Galaxy” space mission ever.
Songs That Found Me
- “Monster” by Dodie — Delicate and brutal with a wicked hook
- “I’m on my Way (with Francesco Turrisi)” by Rhiannen Giddons and Francesco Turrisi — Rhythmic, hypnotic and honest. Ten seconds in I feel like writing.
- “Summon the Fire” by The Comet is Coming — Everything I loved about Moon Hootch the first time I heard “Number 9”
