Paradox: The Time Travel Podcast

Episode 13: Twelve Monkeys and La Jetée

Finally, we’ve come to smoking hot viral-end-of-the-world-and-animals-inherit-the-Earth of Time Travel: “12 Monkeys.” And “La Jetée,” the short film it’s based on, as well.

Look, this is our longest episode, and one of us is neck-deep in the hundreds of thousands of people-strong insanity that is Comic-Con. So go ahead and listen, because we’re feeling a little nuts.
