Welcome back to the podcast!
It’s hard to pin down which was the first time travel story (if you know, be sure to let us know or post about it in the forums!) but it’s undeniable the influence and effect that H. G. Wells’s The Time Machine has had on the general idea. Having the Time Traveller go so far into the future avoids the temptation to try to guess at what today’s modern trends and fashions would have evolved into in favor of exploring a completely alternate reality, while also taking a stab at the ultimate fate of mankind.
This installment of the podcast, The Time Machine, will be presented in four parts. Written by H. G. Wells and adapted by Thomas E. Fuller, The Time Machine is one of the most well-known examples of classic science fiction.
