Few subjects have been more fertile for the writer’s mind than space with its infinite mysteries and fascinations. With the commercial business of space forming, writers have started to shape stories of the people and potential which make it, yet again, the subject of fascination.
As the dreams of fortunes and adventure again capture the creative mind, what are authors writing about and what do they have to say about our space barons and fictional characters with space as the background? In this podcast, based on the August 2023 edition of the New York Space Business Roundtable, you’ll hear from writers of new books from across the spectrum about their books and their opinions!
Our guests include:
- Christian Davenport, Washington Post reporter and author of The Space Barons: Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and the Quest to Colonize the Cosmos
- Tim Fernholz, Sr. Reporter, Quartz.com, author of Rocket Billionaires
- Rob Scheige, Vice President, Willis Towers Watson, author of The Ubiquitous They
This podcast is part of The Road Less Travelled podcast series. In this series, we hear from people whose lives and work inspire us because they walk “the road less travelled,” the one leading us to a wider view of space, satellites and our quest for the dwelling of light we call “The Truth.” This series will feature people you may have heard about but may not have yet had a chance to actually hear speak.
