Nancy Conrad on the Space Show

Nancy Conrad and Joshua Neubert - The Space Show - I probably won't get a chance to listen to the archive until this weekend, but the summary looks good:

Nancy Conrad and Joshua Neubert were the guests today to discuss the Conrad Foundation and the Pete Conrad Spirit of Innovation Award. Find out more by visiting the following websites: http://www.conradfoundation.org/ and http://www.conradawards.org/ . Josh and Nancy explained the purpose of the Conrad Foundation and their incredible awards program. I really think it's likely the best inspiring and motivating awards program for high school students that I have learned about over the past 7 years and I told both guests this on the show.

It's probably discussed in the show, but I noticed this news dated October 2 on the site:

The first 100 registered teams will receive a signed copy of Rocketman: Astronaut Pete Conrad's Incredible Journey to the Moon and Beyond, by Howard Klausner and Nancy Conrad. This book is "A surprisingly candid insider's view of the greatest ride in history: America's glorious race to the stars, as seen through the eyes of a real space cowboy."
