outspace Outer space is fascinating. Throughout history, human beings have looked up at the stars and wondered just what was out there. In this episode, Harp and Maura chat about a variety of topics relating to outer space. Would you like to take a trip to Mars? What if it were only a one-way trip and you could never come back? Check out this episode to hear Harp and Maura discuss their opinions on the topic. You’ll also hear what they think about aliens, UFOs, and conspiracy theories and learn some great space-related idioms. And best of all, you’ll get to hear Maura sing!

Harp: Let’s look at some space-related idioms.
Maura: So, the first one is Are you from Mars?
Harp: No, I’m not from Mars. I’m from Earth.
Maura: So, you might get asked if you’re from Mars, or ask someone if they’re from Mars, if they’re very strange and bizarre, doing things differently than how most people do.
Harp: Yeah. I think kids use this expression the most.
Maura: Yeah. But again, with this, you wanna make sure you ask a friend or someone you know. You don’t say this to someone you don’t know very well, because it could be rude then.
Harp: Yeah, and don’t ask your boss.
