Since Talkin Tuesday is an international chat I get asked "What time is that in _____ time zone?" a LOT. So to answer that question here is a list of time zones and what time the chats start.
I'm in the Eastern Time Zone which is -5:00. This means I am 5 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time, which is what all time zones are based on. This is also referred to as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
Just as a neat factoid, the current time zone system was developed by a Canadian, Sit Sandford Fleming in 1879.
So as not to take forever I'm only listing time zones that encompass either English speaking countries, or ones I know some chatters live in. To confuse matters more, day light savings time is not observed in every area, and some areas switch time zones when day light savings begins/ends. I've tried my best to make this as simple as possible so I figure it should be clear as med.
You can try the converter here.
