in the Second Annual Signal Awards in the Individual Episodes – Science & Education
category. The Signal Awards honor and celebrate the people and content that raise the bar
for podcasting.

“This nomination is extra special because this show was created during the pandemic and
we all work remotely from different states,” said Pamela Gay, Director of CosmoQuest and The Daily Space lead writer and host. “We demonstrated that good content can come out
when people work together through video and chat apps like Discord. The future is online.”

Beth Johnson, Annie Wilson, and Erik Madeus. We are also grateful for volunteer assistance
on aerospace content from Gordon Dewis.
