Spacebound? John Herman is a semifinalist in the Space Race 2012 contest; the winner goes on a suborbital space flight.

Ask people who know John Herman of Newmarket and they’ll tell you he keeps really busy –plays, meetups, video blogs, improv comedy, music… He’s basically everywhere at once, but there’s one place even John Herman hasn’t gone (yet): space.

That may change, as John is one of 20 semifinalists in the Space Race 2012 contest; the winner goes into sub-orbital flight on a trip with a commercial spaceflight company.

John Herman talks with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about his newest project - which, by the way, happens to be nestled in between several other projects: a series of plays about the apocalypse and getting his head shaved for charity.
