1. Dwayne Day - March 10, 2013

I was listening to another Space Show podcast a bit and then clicked on this Hotel Mars segment. Zubrin sounded like he was practically shouting over the phone. I know that he always comes across as strident and that often translates into sounding angry. Here it was strident and LOUD.
