Special Guest:  This week, we are SUPER excited to welcome author Andy Weir (The Martian, @andyweirauthor ) back to the show to chat with us about his new book, ARTEMIS. Viewers who have seen Andy’s first appearance on our show on January 9, 2015, ( will remember just how awesome he is as a guest – and why we can’t wait to catch up with him this week.

Andy began his career as a software engineer but wrote science fiction stories in his spare time. His novel, THE MARTIAN, was a blockbuster success which has allowed him to pursue his writing full-time. He is a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of subjects such as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight.
