TV Time Machine is not your typical radio show. At times turning the traditional interview format on its head, whether its playing "Jeopardy" with Mel Brooks or interviewing Get Smart Producer Leonard Stern in the Cone of Silence, every episode of TV Time Machine is full of surprises for the audience and Jim Benson 's guests. From director Guillermo Del Toro to Gary Owens, from Matthew Weiner to Mel Brooks- when a guest travels on the TV Time Machine, it's not just an interview...it's an adventure!
