The story begins. Darla Danger arrives at her old family estate. Why did her missing father send her here? Why is the house still standing? Does it really have to be raining? And what’s Tennyson got to do with anything?
Real-life astrophysicist Amanda Maxham assumes her alter-ego, Darla Danger, to conduct scintillating interviews, explore science and history, and generally have adventures in time and space.
Join Darla and her robot friend, SAM, in their super-secret science lab for an all-ages podcast that’s like nothing you’ve heard before!
There is an interview. Darla Danger completely randomly interviews Jason Maxham, professional troubleshooter and author of The Art of Troubleshooting. Will Darla’s first interview go well? Will it help to further the Project? What are “conditions for operation”? And does one, in fact, troubleshoot a lightbulb?
Darla Danger interviews Margaret Meixner, Distinguished Astronomer at Space Telescope Science Institute — the science operations center for the Hubble Space Telescope. What exactly is the dust between stars? Where does it come from? How can we see space clouds? And can Darla somehow learn more about the Project?
Darla and SAM receive Distant Signals from the Apollo 13 space mission. Was this inspiring adventure really an example of troubleshooting? Professional troubleshooter Jason Maxham completely randomly returns in this Very Special Episode.
