Joining me on the show this week Nicholas de Monchaux. He is the author of a fascinating book called Spacesuit: Fashioning Apollo. The book chronicles how the Playtex company — known for making bras and girdles — beat out traditional military contractors for the job of designing the spacesuit that Neil Armstrong would eventually wear on the surface of the moon. Nicholas sets this story in the larger context of technology’s relationship to the human body touching on everything from androids and Christian Dior to sci-fi and city planning.
