Joe from Room 17 has been reading "The Time Machine" by HG Wells and Joshua is his DJ for this podcast. This classic novella was published way back in 1895 and was the first book to use the idea of a machine to travel way into the future.
A group of men, including the narrator, is listening to the Time Traveller discuss his theory that time is the fourth dimension. The Time Traveller produces a miniature time machine and makes it disappear into thin air. The next week, the guests return, to find their host stumble in, looking dishevelled and tired. They sit down after dinner, and the Time Traveller begins his story about where he has been. Way into the future and the year 802,701 AD!
