Elton John built and test-flew "Rocket Man" in 1972, but it was Captain James T. Kirk who lifted it soaring into the stratosphere. Did he ever make it to Mars, and was there anyone there to raise his kids? Why didn't he learn any science? Skid Maher of the Glass Cannon podcast attempts reentry to the show to boldly figure out what Sir Elton was singing about and why William Shatner's 1978 performance of it was so spaced out (see below).

Skid Maher from the Glass Cannon podcast stops by to talk about an "American Woman", and what it would sound like if a bunch of Canadian guys told her to get away from them. Along the way we discuss nerd culture, war machines, Jack Benny, the theremin, and if passive-aggressively dissing a woman is such a good idea when you're having trouble seeing colored lights.
