Apple today announced the upcoming launch of "For All Mankind: The Official Podcast," a podcast that will discuss popular Apple TV+ series "For All Mankind" as the second season resumes on February 19.


Hosted by Krys Marshall, who plays Commander Danielle Poole, the podcast will feature space experts, former astronauts, and "For All Mankind" cast and creators.
In For All Mankind: The Official Podcast, the space race continues. Fans of the series and its themes can hear host Krys Marshall (Commander Danielle Poole) discuss what really goes down beyond our atmosphere with guests from the series, space experts, and former astronauts -- plus never-before-heard audio that shows how astronauts achieve the impossible.
The podcast is set to launch on February 19, the same date that the second season of the show premieres. It will be available to listen to on Apple Podcasts.

Bloomberg last year said that Apple was delving into original podcast content to better compete with Spotify and other companies that have been investing heavily in podcasts. Apple plans to focus on audio spinoffs of movies and TV shows available on Apple TV+, and this is the first podcast that's coming as part of that effort.

Apple last week also launched "For All Mankind: Time Capsule," an augmented reality app that lets viewers unpack a virtual time capsule, checking out what's inside and learning about season 2 of the show.

Excellent idea. Apple needs to keep putting out bonus features - Really smart to leverage their podcast platform to make that happen. I hope Apple is smart enough to integrate the podcast directly into the Apple TV+ page so it shows up as a row/bonus feature under the season like they did for the Dickinson bonus vignettes and the Servant Shyamalan mini-documentary.

Loved the first series, rewatching it for a second time with my wife this time. Absolutely in for a companion podcast with the second series.

Also looking forward on the Apple Kusic playlist for the second season; the musical choices for the first was outstanding.

“We live in a society, where honor is a distant memory.” “Isn’t that right, Batman?”

As an Apollo program enthusiast, I enjoyed this show. The attention to detail was great. My only complaint was some plot twists I think would be more risk than NASA would ever consider.

I enjoy when tv shows have companion podcasts: I think of Chernobyl, The Good Place, and Breaking Bad as great examples of shows that were enhanced by listening to the Podcast.

How offensive to say words like that. The proper inclusive word is "peoplekind". Please learn and educate yourself properly on the harm of using gandered language. We live in 2021!
How offensive to be offended by offensive offensiveness. I have never been so offended to read such off-ending offensiveness.

And to think that language and labels need the person receiving the language to make its meaning.

Since I’m an uneducated dolt, what I’m really trying to say is that “meaning from language” (e.g., “you being offended” does not actually come from the person RELAYING the message (they are trying to wirelessly relay ‘intent’) - instead the MEANING comes from the RECIPIENT translating the wireless thought pattern (language). So quite factually YOU have created the offense - because YOU have chosen to translate the intent that way. For all of you offensive culture educated folk that don’t realize that - how does it feel to know that many things that OFFEND you are that way because it requires YOUR idiotic mistranslation to be such?

You may have missed the obviously implied /s tag in Feyl's original post? :)

Albeit I'd call Apple's first two series, after seeing some episodes of it, "womankind". Definitely not "mankind" (exactly the opposite!) and not "human/peoplekind" either.

A weirdly good example of mis-intended language. I was missing a tongue in cheek wink after my last typed “offensiveness” - and the “YOU” was intended to insinuate the “collective you.”

“Collective,” in this case being the “offensive culture” propagators (and I was understanding in your case was a bit comedic) - and the offensiveness, which, if I want to be true to my own word and hold myself accountable for my own philosophies, includes my own feeling of being offended at those that are offended. Ahh, the meta recursiveness of offense... :)

Fully agreed.

this series was a complete sleeper for me even though I liked the lead actor in the Robocop remake and Netflix’s S1 of Carbon show.

out of sheer boredom waiting for my workout gear to arrive) I took a chance. I haven’t ever binged on a show as much since the “v” remake or BSG remake. Except all season one was available to me. The twisting sub-plots, the dialogue “hi Bob” lmao just had me up a full 28hrs! Being an insomniac helps.

ready for season 2 like “well Ivan come on in”
