45 years ago this week, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon. To commemorate, we're sharing our pilot episode which asks the question: What if they crashed?

Performed by Matt Evans as Neil Armstrong, and Ed Herbstman as Buzz Aldrin.

With John Ottavino as Richard Nixon.

Written and produced by Jonathan Mitchell, and edited by Hillary Frank.

This story is based on a real speech written for Richard Nixon in 1969 called "In Event of Moon Disaster." To view the original National Archives document, CLICK HERE.
