In 1997, John Silveira wrote a joke classified ad in a tiny publication called Backwoods Home Magazine asking if anyone wanted to travel back in time with him. A lot of people took him seriously. What do you do when everyone wants you to fix the worst mistakes they’ve ever made.
This one’s from the back catalog of Reply All. I listened to it because some stuff from this specific episode came up at work. Kinda disappointed they go into the whole story that “inspired” the movie Safety Not Guaranteed without talking about the fact that the story became the basis for a movie in the first place. I have so many questions about that. (For a while, I assumed this must’ve been made before the movie came out, but a brief plug for the movie at the end of the segment shows that’s not the case.)
