VS: Episode 245: Don Hartsell
Today, we are joined by Don Hartsell, the first Commissioner for the World Air League. WAL is organizing the World Sky Race, the historic first race of airships to circle the planet. Don is quite an interesting character. Hartsell is an advocate for a greener sustainable path using lighter-than-air airships. We discuss Don’s interest in aviation, the science of airships, and the goals for the first ever World Sky Race. Check it out!
We also talk about Scott talking to a Canadian bobsledder, the maker of Iron Man’s mask, and Chuck Wepner’s manager in one week. Then, Mike tells us a very Burlew-esque story about getting lost in the woods due to a bug. Just another fun week on the show!
