Apple Launches 'For All Mankind' Companion Podcast

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.

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.

I will be the first to be PC. Humankind. I just had to do it. :)
Not sure if you are trying to be clever, but ”mankind” quite literally means the human race.
