We’re Alive! Behind the Steam Relaunches!

Hey all you beautiful listeners!

Surprise, Behind the Steam hasn’t dropped off the map – not by a long shot. The past few months have been full of many changes for us, and life got quite full for a while, with Alyssa’s wedding and Kristin finishing a manuscript.

We have lots of plans hidden up our sleeves, from album reviews to band interviews to just plain old steampunk geekery. And our most exciting recent development is the addition of a new gorgeous BtS babe, the amazingly wonderful Laura Oz-burn.

We sat down the other night for a fun and casual podcast to welcome Laura into our cozy and crazy little group. Hailing from the Bay Area like Alyssa, Laura is a ball of energy and one of the essential driving forces behind Clockwork Alchemy and many other steampunk events in the area. In our podcast, Laura tells us some fun tidbits about herself and adds some useful info such as her own techniques on how to give a good hug – always a plus with the super-friendly steampunk community – and even how to get a proper snuggle, if you feel so inclined.

So hop right over and enjoy our first podcast of year, and look forward to hearing a lot more from us in the upcoming months! As always, thank you so much for visiting Behind the Steam, whether you’ve been with us a while or if you’re new fans. Cheers, and here’s to a wonderful and exciting steampunk 2014!
