“Satellite, satelliiiite, of looooove…” Lou Reed was, no doubt, thinking about the launch of the first satellite, Sputnik, when he wrote those seminal words in 1972 (he may have written them before 1972 of course, we just can’t say right now, and it’s irrelevant to my point).

Of course, not everyone was happy about the launch of Sputnik. Telegraph operators were people of particular vision who could, no doubt, see their days were numbered. And of course there was a Space Race going on.

Britain wasn’t involved in the Space Race, but as always liked to stick its nose in. A nose that is never far from a spectacular sneeze. Join some crazy Britishers in this episode, as they track Sputnik back in the oldenish times when it happened. To the dials!

  1. “Is she a communist?”

    “No, she’s a woman, but I can see how you would get confused”

    Brilliant:) Lovely work guys. Are you currently looking for any additional voice actors? I have my own professional NT1set-up and am just looking for more work and fun.

    I’ve been working on Fiverr.com for over a year. I do not expect any remuneration, I understand you’re providing a free podcast.

    Cheers,
    Bryan Pike
