Another Kind of Distance: A Time Travel, Film, Comics, Nostalgia & History 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
Ben Days of Our Lives 8 - Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld (1983) #10 to #12
And so we come to the end of the Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld maxi-series with issues #9-12. How will the undoing of Opal be done? Will even more characters die bleak deaths guaranteed to scar young comics readers for life? Is it wrong for a woman who is mentally 13 years old to make out with a handsome but wishy-washy prince? Does Carnelian's pet snake really like him? Will The Mad Maple return to the letters pages before the maxi-series ends? And will Amethyst choose to stay in the Gemworld or to return home? Find out all of this and more. Or at least, hear us talk about it. And remember, kids, you can still review us under Another Kind of Distance, which is now our “podcasting network” (although, Opal-like, we prefer “podcasting empire”). In your review you can specify, “I like their comics episodes,” or “I like their time travel movie episodes.” Or, if pressed for time, you can just say, “Good,” or, “Pleasant,” or, “Appealing." We will consider it no less than a solid. Get in touch with Dave and Elise at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our Facebook page for the show!
