Another Kind of Distance: A Time Travel Podcast
About This Show
Elise Moore and David Fiore aspire to cover every time travel film ever made (in this continuum, at least). Together, we'll dive deeply and dialogically into this eternally compelling genre. Our discussions will draw from philosophy, psychology, anthropology, history, narratology, and aesthetic theory. We'll even try to wrap our minds around the physics, when the films demand it. It's an ode to paramours and paradox by two people who really give a flux.
Please let us know what you think of our approach - and chime in with your own impressions. We're all living in the same time period - we ought to take advantage of that, don't you think?
Most Recent Episode
Our Town (1940) and Synecdoche, New York (2008)
Dave and Elise examine an unlikely cinematic duo, Our Town (1940), Sam Wood's adaptation of Thornton Wilder's experimental Pulitzer-winning play about turn-of-the-19th-century American small town life, death, time, and family, and Synecdoche, New York (2008), Charlie Kaufman's experimental movie about a theatre director in a small American city (Philip Seymour Hoffman), death, time, and family. Well, I guess it doesn't sound all that unlikely when you put it like that. Although we've once again gone off the beaten path of strict time travel, that produces some of our favourite episodes, and this is one, so we hope you'll like it too.
