With this podcast episode, we begin a three-part series on aviation leaders. John Glenn shares remarks as the first American to travel into space. They follow his ticker tape parade in New York City after his return.
In addition to this audio episode, I also provide two PDF documents: first, a short overview of his life, and finally, the story of the Mercury Seven pioneer astronauts of which John Glenn was a member.
