This was a great episode! The podcast noted that there would be a video of the “Becoming Interplanetary” symposium. I can’t seem to find that video in my own searches. If that becomes available I’d love to watch that conversation too. https://www.loc.gov/item/event-393637/becoming-interplanetary/2018-09-27/astrobiology-symposium-becoming-interplanetary/

Thanks David. Glad you liked it! I don’t think the video is out yet, but I will check with Dr. Walkowicz. When it comes out, I will update the blog post.
