*batteries not included (1987)

There’s something strange going on in a rundown apartment block on New York’s lower east side. To check it out, we’ve invited our guest, writer and friend Steph Brandhuber (@StephBranded) to see what’s what. We discover some Amazing Stories within concerning a deeply lovable elderly couple, a wannabe artist with a milky beard who grinds everyone’s gears, and of course some incredible 'Fix It' flying machines. All this and more in our adventure through Matthew Robbin’s ‘*batteries not included.’ You can follow Steph over on Twitter (@stephbranded) and Instagram (also @stephbranded) to stay up on her latest work. Follow the podcast on Twitter (@RamblinAmblin) and be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode! Get in touch with us either via Twitter or email rambinaboutamblin@gmail.com. Ramblin is created and produced by Andrew Gaudion and Joshua Glenn. A special thanks as always to Emily Tatham for the artwork, and Robert J. Hunter & Greg Sheffield for the theme music.
