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 explore moral questions such as human agency versus a predetermined timeline, 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 ForeverUmbrella Academy, and Bill & Ted.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
