Apparently ‘Bill and Ted’ is one of the most accurate movies in the genre.
We have a unique guest on this week’s Parsec Podcast: a philosopher who specializes in time travel.
Dr. Stephanie Rennick is a full-time academic and writes about philosophy and pop-culture on the blog Epicurean Cure. Unsurprisingly, she’s a big fan of time travel fiction. In a chat with the Parsec Podcast, she explained some of the most popular methods of time travel in sci-fi, and she shared her favorite (and least favorite) examples of the genre.
Apparently Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure is a brilliant example of time travel philosophy, while the critically acclaimed movie Looper is absolute nonsense. Who knew?
