Rob & Matthew’s Excellent Time Travel Adventure
Rob & Matthew’s excellent time travel episode!
After months of ranting about the logical and ethical problems with time travel, Matthew invited OG Time Lord Rob McKenzie to explain it all. We look at different theories of time travel, and which movies and tv shows make the most sense. We look at moral questions such as human agency vs. a predetermined time line, who gets to decide what the timeline ‘should’ be, what is the responsibility of someone who can go back in time to make things ‘right,’ and will Matthew ever find a time travel story that doesn’t drive him up the damn wall.
Particular focus on Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever, Umbrella Academy, and Bill & Ted.

In honor of the late Sheldon Menery, we ask: What is Rule Zero – his philosophy that any game should start from a place of shared expectations – and what can it teach us about building community?
Caged Bishop Cosplay joins me to talk about his experience as a blerd (black nerd), intersectionality in fandom, and our shared love as masculine folks for Barbie.
