Paradox: The Time Travel Podcast

Episode 15: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Finally, we’ve come to smoking hot wizard-children-mess-with-the-time-space-continuum-with-zero-adult-supervision of time travel: “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.”

We’re prepping for our next episode, in which we’re covering the newly released stage script, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” To get in the mindset for a wizardly time travel story, we’re checking out a (much more compact) wizardly time travel story. Azkaban might not be as time travel-heavy as “Primer” and the other films that we’ve covered here, but that doesn’t mean there’s not plenty to break down.

You know, like the many failed timelines in which Harry and pals were (most likely) brutally mauled by a werewolf.
