The Final Episode - 1.3.1, Ooraanooss and Our New Podcast

We have decided not to continue under the Boosters and Spacetape name as we move away from a KSP focus. All four of us appear for the final recording to say farewell and let you know where to find our new show. We discuss the upcoming KSP 1.3.1 patch as well as the progress on the DLC. Take Two also gets a discussion after the company partners with SQUAD. Feedback from our listeners is read out as their opinion is shared on our decision to expand our show. The usual astronomy section...


BST Ep33 - Offline Special #2: Broadening the Horizon

Join us for our second special offline episode and last dedicated KSP recording as we discuss the changes that will be coming to this podcast. The feedback we have received from both the live and at-home audience has been extremely positive regarding our proposed changes and we have already begun work on the new format for the show. Before we start we also have another quick overview of the upcoming 'Making History' expansion and the KSP v1.3 update to offer some clarity to our...


BST Ep32 - Mountains of Salt and Soundwaves in Space

Digi returns back to the show with his bad jokes for a full-house lineup. We quickly breeze over our recent KSP adventures to get to the discussion over Squad revealing their 'Big Announcement'. Despite sugar coatings from Aki and perspective changes from the Panda, beware for much cynicism and salt in this episode... After wishing Yuri Gagarin a happy birthday we revisit TRAPPIST-1 to dampen the spirits for many in our real-space segment. The NASA budget proposals cause mixed emotions...


BST Ep31 - Bad Secret-Project Guessing, 2nd-Hand Vegetarians and Gazebos

In the absence of DigitalPsychosis we do our best to inject the silliness into this episode as we discuss our recent adventures in Kerbal Space Program. With the help of the live chat we throw out some, what turned out to be, bad guesses for the Secret Project that Squad has been working on for the past few months. The Read Panda has some obsessions over the Fallout series and gazebos while Aki explains how he is a second-hand vegetarian. Listener mail and Tweets are also read...


BST Ep30 - Something, Something Minmus Landing

Digi returns to the show with his bad jokes and awkward moments.

In Episode 27 DigitalPsychosis rejoins the team to cover our latest progress in Kerbal Space Program, albeit a bit dry. We talk about SQUADs progress on the 1.2.2 patch and welcome a new senior developer. TheReadPanda offers his experience with the OPT and Mk4 Spaceplane mods in the modding section. For our Real Space segment we discuss MatoroIgnika's experience at the GOES-R launch, the future options for NASA and that darned Super-Moon hype. 0:02:22- Coming up... 0:04:28 - Mission...

Boosters and Spacetape Ep25 - 1.2 PC Release!

In this episode we discuss the release of KSP 1.2. Unfortunately this version is still waiting console porting, but the PC release seems all that we could have hoped for. We share our feelings on the departure of the majority of developers and thank them for all their hard work. We also delve into what we'd like to see with KSPs future. We also talk about Mator's experience at TwitchCon and Digi's and Aki's adventures at the Skylab crash site. 00:03:06 - Coming up... 00:04:30 - R&D and...


Boosters and Spacetape Ep24 - 1.2 in Pre-Release

1.2 is now in pre-release and we are now able to talk about the features without fear of breaking the Squad NDA. We run through our experiences with version 1.2 so far as well as giving a brief over view of the features. We weren't able to cover everything so we will be diving into more depth over the next few shows. We also cover SpaceX, Philae's discovery and the Juno data in our real space section.

Mator has been out of the loop as he recovers from a real-life disaster, Digi has an announcement for an upcoming event, Read continues to take things seriously and Aki is happy to be back into a streaming schedule. We talk about the changes...


Boosters and Spacetape Ep22 - Offline One Year Special

In this episode there is no Kerbal Space Program or Astronomy discussion. Instead, we took the opportunity to talk about the Podcast itself without the usual live audience. Having run the show for more than a year now we thought it would be fun to reflect on our time in Boosters and Spacetape since it started in June 2015. A lot has changed since the first episode; from recording quality to content. We look back on our journey so far and we also discuss where the show is going. BST...

Boosters and Spacetape Ep18 - Kerbal Space Program (KSP)

More podcasting sillyness and no more bug-whinging with Digi, Read, Mator and Aki. We discuss our progress in Kerbal Space Program as always before we move on to KSP development and news from the modding community. We share some big news with the departure of HarvestR (the creator of KSP) from Squad and wish him well on his new ventures. There is also our astronomy discussion in our real space segment including some Moon facts.

As requested by listener MajorRocketScience, we also talk about the...


Boosters and Spacetape Ep15 - Kerbal Space Program (KSP)

At the time of recording, KSP 1.1 was still going through its release phase and we discuss whether we feel the game still needed some work. There was also limited discussion on mods as we patiently wait for them to trickle through with their updates. We also report on our own KSP progression and what we've been up to in our streams. Dan (Aki) is still away but is counting down the last few weeks before he returns home to his studio where he can get back into the swing of things properly....


Boosters and Spacetape Ep14 - Kerbal Space Program (KSP)

The Read Panda returns to the microphone for Episode 14 of Boosters and Spacetape.
