The Rocketry Show is hosted by three rocket geeks, CG, Gheem, and Daniel The Rocket n00b. As a team, we strive to entertain as well as inform you on the topics of Model and High Power rocketry as well as STEM relates activities built around amateur rocketry. We will occasionally delve a little into the world of “professional rocketry” (NASA, SpaceX, ESA, and other space agencies & companies) when something interesting comes up there…but our main focus is amateur rocketry.

Great new podcast for a fun hobby!
I'm really excited that someone is doing a model rocketry related podcast. Still early days in the show (only 5 episodes so far,) but sounds like "Woosh" and "Boom" have some good stuff in store for future episodes.
Finally a podcast for the rocketry hobbyist!
Professional and entertaining with an eye on the history of the hobby, safety and current space news. A young podcast that's off to a great start and has plenty of potential to grow. Thank you!
If you are into Rocketry, this is a POD cast fro you! Every show has something I learn or at least ready enjoy hearing about. Much better than talk radio for the drive to work.
