The Grand Old Time Machine

OBSIDIAN: Episode 25 by J.C. Hutchins


Today sees the release of the hilarious short-short story The Odds by the legendary Wichita Rutherford! Wichita Rutherford is the world-renowned podcast celebrity. He is recognized as a true pioneer of the podcasting movement and continues to push the envelope with his cutting edge, innovative digital content. He's also ... precious.

When Wichita first came on the podcasting scene, it was obvious he was something special. An interviewer and Bluegrass historian with a knack for making famous people laugh, it didn't take long for the Bluegrass community to take notice, including superstars such as Alison Krauss, Dierks Bentley, John Paul Jones, Ricky Skaggs, Gillian Welch, Bela Fleck and Doc Watson. These are just some of the superstars who lined up to be interviewed on his podcast, "5 Minutes with Wichita." Demand became so insatiable that Wichita soon found himself the very first Podcaster with a deal at SIRIUS Satellite Radio.

XM is now Wichita's "satellite radio home" after his two-year run on SIRIUS. His new show, "The Grand Old Time Machine," has an unprecedented fan base.
