How to Nail Your Podcast Interview

Did you listen to a podcast this month? If so, you are certainly not alone. A recent HBR blog notes that more and more professionals are tuning into podcasts as an information-packed complement to their daily commute, workout, or chores. Indeed, there are now an estimated 660,000 podcasts and 26% of Americans listen to at least one per month. As a result, podcasts have become a powerful marketing tool and a targeted way to spread your message to audiences ranging from talent leaders to bookkeepers to attorneys.

Here's How Astronauts Practice in Zero Gravity on Earth

Astronauts go through months and years of training before they ever make it to outer space. This training teaches them how to survive in the harsh and sometimes alien environments that they encounter in orbit.

How can astronauts learn how to live in zero-g while still under our planet's gravitational pull?
