Yes, here is, the man, the myth, the legend. Making Blake’s 7.
Here’s a fun fact for you all, Jon is the first person who has actually asked US to be on the podcast. Weird right? Usually we’re the one’s begging everyone else to come on the podcast, because really who wants to listen to Dylan and Kiyan for 52 episodes straight without some sort of other voice in there? So that’s exciting. It’s The Harvest of Kairos, written by Ben Steed and aired on February 4, 1980.
Show-notes: 1:28 Jon also runs Who FX, another awesome Twitter account. He’s been on Radio Free Skaro before. You know, the one Doctor Who podcast that everyone who listens to Doctor Who podcasts listens to. Blake’s 7 © The BBC
