The first #SteampunkChat was celebrated on November 6th, 2010, with original hosts, Lia Keyes, Jaymee Goh, and Matt Delman. Since that time chat topics have been varied, spirited, and wide-ranging. Since then we’ve been lucky to have other steampunks volunteer their time to host—Jenny Schwartz, and our current host, The Artificer.

Anyone is welcome to join in, and you can drop in and out at will. We ask that you keep things civil, even if there are people you disagree with—debate is healthy, but abuse is not. Luckily, Steampunks are a jovial lot, so it hasn’t been an issue to date.

We love to interview Steampunk personalities and creators, so if you wish to become our topic of the week, just use the contact page to let us know.

Likewise, if you’d like to take a turn hosting, yep, you know what to do… use the contact page.

The chats are hosted weekly on Fridays at 6 pm PST / 9 pm EST, with a summer hiatus for June, July, and August.
