I really enjoyed this! Hearing about the development and processes behind this work is particularly interesting and very engaging. The content is spot on. The music is perfect. When the audio is just right, I got serious nostalgia. I'm a kid again, sitting in darkened planetarium lectures or listening to presentations at NASA. Unexpectedly wonderful! This is also particularly strong in the game trailer! There's only one thing I would say that diminishes this slightly. It's the poor sound quality during the interviews. You could use some temporary heavy curtains around the meeting room, and maybe record a little closer in to the interviewee, it would make such a huge difference. I'm really looking forward to hearing the next episode!
