Aren't unexpected visitors the worst? They show up out of nowhere and turn your whole world upside-down. Funny thing is, sometimes you miss them when they're gone.

Sometimes, we forget that our modern modes of city-to-city transportation and space exploration–along with many of the images found in popular science fiction–come from the Martians who landed, lived, and died on Earth during the first half of the 20th century. The interviews in this program help us to remember this important yet tragic part of our global history.


Yeah, whether it's a box that a time lord uses to spin though space and time ‑‑ or a monolith sent here to advance primate intelligence -- or even the capsule that Jor-El used to teleport the last son of Krypton to Earth ‑‑ you can trace it all back to those Martian booths that landed here once upon a time.


Tim Prasil, the author, was heard as the "coming up next" announcer.

One of those promos is for a show about the "greiving therapy" technology featured in the Marvellous Boxes episode "A Demon Once Removed."
