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 Past.” 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
-12 Monkeys, 1995 movie
-H.G. Wells, The Time Machine, 1895 book
-Dan Carlin, “Supernova in the East,” Hardcore History Podcast
-Dan Carlin, “(Blitz) The Destroyer of Worlds,” Hardcore History Podcast
-Star Trek episode “The City on the Edge of Forever”
-Star Trek episode “Patterns of Force”
