Very excited that the Rocket N00b is getting some press and excited to find your podcast! 
I was happy to be there for Daniel's first rocket launch (with the famous Chad) and I've been a loyal blog reader ever since.
A question for the Rocket N00b:
In our first rocket launch we all had "launch control" jobs and it was AWESOME. I was something like a VOTSAS (or Vehicle on the Street Apprehension Specialist) and it was my job to warn mission control about approaching cars that our launches might interact with. What sorts of similar things can complete N00bs help out with on their first rocket launch? Any ideas for titles to help make the launch a community event? Especially kid friendly titles?
 
Pro side of the coin....
Rocketry Show guys:
(really entertaining show! Thanks!) When you do a high power launch, what kinds of personnel are required on the ground and what are their official titles? Make us N00bs (and kids who might be around) feel legit!

A bit of a fluff piece, but heck, I've never not had a job on a launch site. How can I help?  Or what can you call me to make me feel like I'm helping?

Thanks!

Thanks for hopping onto our discussion forums! 

These are very fun questions, and I think I'll save our response for the next show!

Since this episode ran a bi long, we've decided to hold off the Q&A until Episode #5

Stay tuned!

Hi,
I like the show and I like the Rocket n00b (have read his blog in the past), but he really needs to get a proper podcasting setup.  The audio quality on his end was awful; sounded like a crappy mic and a very echo-y room.  Once you get that straightened out, it should be great.

Thanks for your feedback, Neil!

We're tweaking his setup as we roll along.  We'll get it there!
