Episode 300 – Time Eddy II & CCC

ttv_logo_newWell, we’ve made it to episode 300. And there was no better time to make this milestone as this past weekend where we celebrated at Time Eddy II, the Wichita Doctor Who convention right here in our home state of Kansas. We came back exhausted from the event, but with some memories that we will cherish forever.

And, we have with us some material that you will only hear, right here on the program.

It’s a long episode this week, the longest we’ve produced in some time, But, we hope it will be worth it as we talk about our weekend adventure at a convention that should be heralded as a premiere event for years to come.
