Episode 70 - Spreading the Word

Welcome back to the past. Now that we have secured a good standard of living with light, heat, shelter and books, we have to spread the word. That requires a way to communicate information over long distances. We didn't want to rely on the actual historical method of guys on horses, so instead we tried to make semaphore, telegraph, and even a tiny underground message service.

As usual it's a little knowledge spread really thin. Hope you enjoy it.

In case you are wondering after listening, this is what a paternoster lift looks like and yes, chairlifts do detach from the cable using a mechanism that looks like this.

We're going to be selling t-shirts!
