Jim Lewis: From Rocket Launches to Hollywood Storyteller

Meet Jim Lewis, the man who bridged the gap between Earth's gravity and the silver screen. He's not just a television and film producer – he's a space advocate who uses his passion to ignite the imaginations of millions.

Lewis isn't afraid to chase down a good story, whether it's the roar of a car engine or the rumble of a rocket launch. He's brought us shows like "The Great American Car War" and "Skating's Next Star," proving he's as comfortable with horsepower as he is with triple axels.

But his heart truly lies among the stars. He's the mastermind behind space documentaries like "One Giant Leap" and "America's Animal Astronaut Heroes," and even served as line producer for the Japanese space epic "Space Brothers."

He's not just a storyteller, he's a history maker. Jim was part of the team that won a regional Emmy for broadcasting the iconic STS-95 John Glenn Space Shuttle launch, and the National Space Club recognized his contributions promoting the space indusy with the prestigious Kolcum Award.

But Jim's story isn't just about awards and accolades. He's a driven entrepreneur who founded Communications Concepts, Inc. (CCI) in 1978, a company that pioneered live coverage of rocket launches from around the globe. He even helped the Malaysian government by producing live coverage their astronaut's mission to the International Space Station.

And he's not slowing down. Writing and producing his first feature film in 2019 and now with a new documentary about space legend Martin Caidin in the works, Jim Lewis continues to inspire us to dream big, reach for the stars, and maybe even win a trophy or two along the way.

So buckle up, folks, because Jim Lewis is taking us on a ride – on Earth, on screen, and maybe even beyond.

Listeners:  Note that Cox Cable had an outage about 20 minutes into our program.  Fortunately the internet came back and after about a ten minute delay we were able to produce a full length Space Show program.  I removed the dead air from the recording.  Nothing from our discussion was omitted.  The audio was fair, probably because bandwidth was going in and out due to the Cox outage problem.
