Episode 46-Packing for Mars by Mary Roach

Reads and Weeds

Shelly is joined by the inimitable Cynthia Shelby Lane to talk about Packing for Mars-The Curious Science of Life in the Void by Mary Roach. I have loved Roach's books for so long and can't think of a better person to geek out about it with on this show than Cynthia. She has applied to be an astronaut MANY times and keeps the dream alive WHILE serving the cannabis industry as an MD, researcher, and advocate AND she brought me SNOOP DOG WINE and it was TASTY. We had a blast(off).....see what I did there. Colin McDougal(C-Murder) was there patiently playing Rocket Man over and over for my stoney ass. Thanks man.
