The Time Zones Exchange Project distills selections from Negativland's radio program Over the Edge, broadcast on KPFA. This CD was edited together from several different broadcasts recorded between 1989 and 1992.

Unlike previous volumes of the Over The Edge series, this two disc set presents a rambling documentary with a pseudo-plot to uncover information about the elusive Trillionaire C.E. Friday, a character that recurs throughout various forms of Negativland Media, and also covers many theories about Howland Island. Disc 1 contains a mock radio show - The Piddle Diddle Report - from a station called ABS, which closely parodies the Art Bell show. Disc 2 is presented as a Universal Media Netweb simulcast, in conjunction with Radio Moscow, to teach the people of Russia the basics of a Free Market economy. Throughout this disc are commercials for Mertz, a Decision-Enhancing Mental Supplement, and a series of recordings from a real botched attempt to do a similar simulcast in the mid 1980's. This album was released in 1993 on Negativland's Seeland label.
