Episode 13: The Rewind Files

This month we speak to author of The Rewind Files, Claire Willett and professor at Columbia Journalism School, Michael Schudson.

 

Plot of The Rewind Files

Regina Bellows, junior agent at the U.S. Time Travel Bureau, is at the top of her game finding dangerous anomalies caused by reckless time-travelers (basically cleaning up other people’s messes) from the comfort and safety of her desk – she knows her lack of social graces and verbal filter would make her a liability in the field.

When she accidentally uncovers a massive time anomaly in 1972 about a far- reaching conspiracy to start World War III, she embarks alone on her first field mission ever – as an undercover secretary at the Nixon White House – where the race is on to find the conspirators before they find her.

She’s undertrained, inexperienced, all alone, and World War III is hanging in the balance.

What could possibly go wrong?
