Episode 1: Introducing the Davenport Sisters

Ladies & Gentlemen, allow your clockwork assistants to wind down, remove the grimy goggles from your face and that soot and oil covered leather glove from your hand. Oh! You've a mechanical appendage underneath! Well, isn't that clever! Ladies and Gents, present that hand to be heartily shaken by the Davenport sisters. They're here to amuse and beguile with their first proper radio broadcast from aboard the Airship Calpurnia. These adorable steampunk adventurers face their first annoyance with the mortal enemies, CLANNG, when poor Emmett's microphone is suddenly and horribly silenced! Listen as the Davenport sisters tell you the tale of woe of how they became orphans of the sky, and allow them to introduce themselves, their work and their lives to you, dear listener. Until next week, full steam ahead!
