Episode 24 : “Sally Ride” Edition, with Lynn Sherr (audio)

Posted by jnshaumeyer on 10 September 2014

Streamed live on 9 September 2014.

Today we had a lively discussion with Lynn Sherr about her outstanding biography, Sally Ride : America’s First Woman in Space. We talked quite a bit about the sexist barriers that Sally (and Lynn Sherr, herself) help to break down in the early 1980s, listened to stories, and tried to understand what a different time it was when Sally joined NASA in 1978, and what a different place the USA was back then.
