The Clockwork Cabaret is the premier steampunk music podcast to ride the windy wilds of the aethernet. Spontaneous, silly, & ever expanding, our goal is to pump coal-heated music o’ gears directly into your copper-plated steampunk’d ears.


The sisters have had quite a day, everything that could break down aboard the Calpurnia has, much to the chagrin of Emmett & Mingan. Could there be saboteurs aboard the ship? Has CLANNG figured out a way to cripple their show at a distance? Did all of the warranties run out on all of their equipment at once? Where's Klaude and her trusty spanner when you need her!?!
