Ratchet RetrocastApril Fools! We travel back to February 17th to get back into the mix of retro topics! Choose your means of time travel! Machine, temporal rifts, your state of mind? Q, CD, and Strangeway cover the expanse of how time travel has been portrayed in film and television, with Ratchet chiming in from the back of the Police Call Box. From H.G. Well’s “Time Machine” to “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure” and many points between, we cover it all in a wibbly wobbly timey wimey fashion.

We also continue our Achievement Unlocked feature as well as joining us for our Clockwork Quarter Hour is Dave Lee from Hatton Cross Steampunk. Learn more about how this maker group and their “Steam Tank”!
