Great Scott! We’re firing up our flux capacitors and heading back in time to talk about 1985’s Back to the Future. Recent listeners will remember our special guest from our last episode—game designer, director, musician, and friend of the podcast, Teddy Dief. Chosen by our Patrons from a group of time travel films, Back to the Future (produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by Robert Zemeckis) is far more problematic than many of us remembered. Listen in to our discussion as we interrogate how a movie so culturally iconic and beloved presents so many issues. Or else, just tune in to hear Teddy give us some A+ Marty McFly impressions.
