Episode 1.1: Good Old Painted Backdrops

This is the beginning of a beautiful partnership.

This is a rerecord, remake, reboot, whatever of the very first episode of our podcast. If you’re reading this on Apple Podcasts or Google Play, or basically anywhere that isn’t our website, you can find the original version of this episode on our website here. Otherwise, this is a new and shiny version, which we made four years into the podcast. We hope you enjoy! It’s An Unearthly Child, written by Anthony Coburn and aired on November to December, 1963.
