Chris Hadfield ReturnsBook Shambles
Our favourite Canadian returns to the podcast this week, it’s astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield. Chris has just released his first ever work of fiction, a historical thriller titled The Apollo Murders. He joins Robin, and guest co-host Helen Czerski, to talk about his favourite thrillers, what it was like moving into the world of fiction, making sure the space science was accurate and the future of human spaceflight itself.
Around 10 extra minutes of chat this week for Patreon supporters so sign up at patreon.com/bookshambles. And get signed copies of Robin’s new book from our new bookshop.
