In a hilarious series of time-travelling misadventures, a Reporter and a Sidekick livestream from great moments in American history.

Despite the über-scientist Sidekick’s best efforts to keep the clueless Reporter out of trouble, they change the course of history and return to a comically chaotic present. Even Einstein and Marie Curie cannot undo the disastrous effects of their mishaps.

Eventually, they are able to save democracy and technology by restoring order to the "whole space-time continuum thing."
