  1. Though we miss Chris, it’s always nice to hear from Christof and Jody doesn’t miss a beat in the transition. The episode was funny and informative and it sounded like Jody was channeling Matthew McConaughey in the Space Force story. Is that what you were going for?

  2. Thanks for sharing the harrier story. The MAG CO should have to pay for the damage out of his own pocket! What an ignoramus!
