In this episode, we make time to watch two Twilight Zone episodes that deal with both “time” and nukes: “Time Enough at Last” and “No Time Like the Present.” How would the development of thermonuclear weapons impact your reading habit? If you had a time machine, how would you prevent the WWII atomic bombings? Does every household need a 2-in-1 bank vault/fallout shelter to protect their loved ones and valuables? Tim Westmyer (@NuclearPodcast), Gabe, and returning guest Elliot answer these questions and more.

Before we update our reading list for the apocalypse, we recommend:

  • Twilight Zone episode “Walking Distance”
  • Last Man on Earth (TV show, comedy)
  • Black Mirror episode “San Junipero”
  • Arctic, 2018 movie

  • H.G. Wells, The Time Machine, 1895 book
