Episode 014: For Discovery

With the launch of the Mars Perseverance Rover this morning, I read a poem that looks at the end of a storied career for another spaceship, the beloved Space Shuttle Discovery. This ode recalls the time when she came to DC as the 747 carrying her did a victory lap around the district before delivering her to the Air and Space museum at Udvar Hazy.

Hey, I'd love to hear what you think of the podcast, whether it's a specific poem or the format, or whatever's on your mind! Leave a review or a comment in your podcast app, or catch me on Twitter @Lefthandrob.

After listening to the podcast (or while listening), visit one of these sites and donate for the cause, because All Black Lives Matter and my fellow white (and cis) people we need to get in the game:

Donate to Black Lives Matter

Donate to the Souther Poverty Law Center

Donate to the Equal Justice Initiative

Transgender Law Center

The poems will continue to flow, but so must the Justice.
