Studio 360: Time Travel

Kurt Andersen thinks time travel is the ultimate fantasy. He's made peace with the fact that he probably won't be climbing into a time machine any time soon — because, he explains, he already has. The past isn't nearly as dead as we thought.

Publisher's Summary

Kurt Andersen thinks time travel is the ultimate fantasy. He's made peace with the fact that he probably won't be climbing into a time machine any time soon — because, he explains, he already has. The past isn't nearly as dead as we thought.

Then, the forward-thinking space funk singer performs "Sincerely, Jane" from her album Metropolis: The Chase Suite. She tells Kurt how she came to connect with her alter ego, Cindi Mayweather, an android from the 28th century.

Finally, Simon Wells is the great-grandson of H.G. Wells. He directed the 2002 film adaptation of his ancestor's classic novel, The Time Machine. Wells has very specific ideas about how a time machine should be designed — but David Goldberg says the time transport vehicle might look more like a spaceship; Goldberg and Connie Willis also debate whether a visitor to the past would be able to reshape the future. [Broadcast Date: August 21, 2010]
