Welcome to this new regular series in support of The Space Show Website & Archives Modernization Program. The Space Show will be bringing you daily short interviews (10-15 minutes each) with listeners who will share with us why they believe the new website and archival quality database will be important to them and enhance their Space Show listening experience. For the fourth of these short programs, we welcomed back John Hunt who is both an avid listener to the program, a frequent caller, and he has been a guest as well. John spoke to the need of having a guest and topic search program, including covering the early shows before 2008 that are not part of the current GuestSearch tool other than by guest name. We talked about having rebuilt the database to given the 2007 and earlier shows key words so that they would be part of our new, fully searchable, archival quality database for the archives. John was clear on the benefits and advantages to himself and other listeners with these Space Show website upgrades. John briefly mentioned having finished "The Martian" and Dr. Woodward's book on mach thruster physics. We will hear more from him on these topics on Space Show programs.
