Fight Crime Through Time (feat. Justin Taylor)
For as long as humanity has dreamt of traveling through time, it’s also dreamt of time manipulation as a means of preventing terrorism, apprehending warlords in future dystopias and stopping your younger self from killing your older self. But don’t take our word for it! This week, we watched a trio of “Fight Crime Through Time” movies, including Demolition Man (1993), Looper (2012) and Deja Vu (2006).
This episode’s special guest is Justin Taylor, an acclaimed author and a Demolition Man fan from way back. He’s the writer of Flings, The Gospel of Anarchy and Everything Here Is The Best Thing Ever. Follow Justin on Twitter at @my19thcentury and find his work here.
