Broadcast 1415 (Special Edition)

Guest: Dennis Wingo. Topics: Private space capital, visionaries, and private spaceflight. We welcomed Dennis Wingo back to The Space Show. Rather than describe this program by its three segments, I want to talk about the overriding theme of the show which focused on the need to have space visionaries and to attract and invest private capital in private space ventures. In having this conversation, Dennis also talked about the risks for companies in taking public money.

Broadcast 1081 (Special Edition)

Guest: Open Lines with Dr. David Livingston. Nearly all the first hour of the program was devoted to business planning, due diligence, engineering, and number crunching analysis. I went through the business plan outline I use, responded to listener questions and comments and talked about some do's and don'ts regarding business planning, negotiations, and talking with investors as well as others. Later in the show, several listeners asked me about my thoughts on 2008 space milestones, my view of things to come in 2009, and my take on Dr. Griffin as NASA Administrator.

Broadcast 1010 (Special Edition)

Guest: Open Lines with DrSpace. Dr. David Livingston (DrSpace) conducted an Open Lines show for this Space Show program. The theme for this show was a look back at the seven years of programming with more than 1,000 shows. In the process of sharing my reflections on trends, changes, and strong and weak points of the space industry, we had lots of callers and online questions. We covered many topics ranging from educational issues, to business planning and due diligence to hard core engineering and scientific analysis of ventures and rhetoric often heard in the industry.
