  1. Great way to close out the Apollo 11, Mike. I don’t know about other listeners, but I personally appreciated hearing the sound clips from France and the Vatican in their original languages, despite being monlingual myself. I think it was a nice way of emphasizing Apollo as not just an American endeavor but a human one.
