  1. I can’t wait to listen (I’ve had internet issues and can’t stream things well. I’m behind and still haven’t listened to your Halloween podcast)! I love timetravel stories! And if it’s mentioned in this context, I’m sorry, but Terminator is my favorite timetravel love story. “I traveled through time for you” or whatever Reese says=romance!

  2. Lolling at Nissa—18 is when your mother stops loving you.

    When you mentioned mother’s sacrifice and how the bad guy will just kill the child once mom is dead, I immediately thought of Harry Potter then you guys started talking about it. I feel like it’s not that Lily did nothing despite being a powerful witch. As I saw it, her strength as a witch also allowed her (strength in a Hermione I’m smart way) to know that if she sacrificed herself, Harry would survive the attack. But if she fought, there wouldn’t be the sacrifice and Harry would die. Do you think there is anything strong in self-sacrifice?

    I’m with Lindsay (I think…?) about not going back to the Middle Ages. Something will happen to your time machine and you will be stuck there.
