SSPI Podcast

This is the podcast of the Space & Satellite Professionals International. On this channel, we release podcasts in two series: Better Satellite World and Making Leaders.

Better Satellite World episodes feature conversations with people whose work in space & satellite make a stronger economy, a better society and a more sustainable planet. They demonstrate why space technology is indispensable to modern life.
SSPI’s Making Leaders program is dedicated to building the human capital and leadership strength of the space and satellite industry.  Podcasts feature interviews with leaders on their own career paths and the essentials of hiring, managing and leading others.

SSPI releases a new podcast every Monday.

Summer Fun 2021

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, for vacations, hobbies and taking a step back from the usual business of the industry. In this podcast series, we check in on what people in the industry are doing this summer, what they're thinking about for the fall as they head out on vacation and what they’re planning to do to when they return to make a better satellite world. The third episode features Rice Space Institute's Dr. David Alexander!

Space for All, Season 2

In season 2 of this podcast series, we further explore the question of inclusion: examining the ways in which we make space and satellite accessible as a service, as a technology and as an idea. The sixth and final episode features a “slice of life” conversation with Dr. Gladys B. West, the industry’s first African-American woman inducted into the Space and Satellite Hall of Fame, and one of the “hidden figures” behind GPS.
