While at NASA I had the honor and pleasure to work with Jay O’Callahan as he created NASA’s first ever oral story for their 50th Anniversary. It was groundbreaking, a new myth for modern times. Jay is a national treasure, a true story genius and a dear friend. I grew up on his stories and as an adult attended his workshop with my father. It was a true dream-come-true to be able to work with him. Thank you to NASA for making “Forged in the Stars” available for all!
