This week, Mike & Mike dust off the Delorean, Bobby warms up the Time Tunnel, Anthony Taylor powers up the Sphere, and award-winning artist Mark Maddox plots a slingshot trajectory around the sun as the ESO crew explores our favorite movies and TV shows dealing with time travel. And we attempt to do so without the assistance of a certain Gallifreyan Time Lord! Comic creator James Burns spends some time in The Geek Seat and friends of the station Teresa and Alan preview the upcoming TrekTrax and TimeGate conventions. All this, plus the usual Rants, Raves and Shout Outs!
Join us for yet another episode of The Earth Station One Podcast we like to call: It’s About Damn Time, and Time Machines Too
