Casey Dreier, the Planetary Society's Director of Space Policy, and Jason Callahan, the Society's Space Policy Advisor, talk with Mat Kaplan about the just-released "President's Budget Request" for the fiscal year starting in October of 2016. The outlook for this mostly positive, 700-page proposal is hazy, especially in an extremely volatile election year. You'll hear the good, the bad, and the bewildering in this extended conversation.
