    Hi All,

    Just a very quick note about a point made in this podcast. Have to make it before I forget (I forget everything). The explanation about how Olivia traveled to the other universe – with the car, and to the twin towers – with the elevator, reminded directly of an episode of Nova (I think, or Nova Now or similar) where that famous scientist whose name I can’t remember explains demensions and traveling between them. In short, he says (not word for word): Say a friend of yours calls you to meet them on the 6th floor of The Tall Building on 360 Park Street. Technically, these are inter-dimensional directions. 360 park Street is the location in 2 demensions (or the second demension, or the flat one, whatever works) ….so apply this to the car crash Olivia had….. and the 6th floor of The Tall Building is the location in the third demension (the up and down one….) which could be applied to Olivia’s move to the Twin Towers. Perhaps this theory could be applied to a 4th demension and location….. Or I could be talking soap bubbles. Anyway, LOVE the podcast. And the Food for Thought intro is a total keeper! (and so is the A Team intro)

    Thanks again, Ingrid

    Hey guys, great to have you back. Did I look forward to your podcast because of the Fringe premiere or did I look forward to the Fringe premiere because of your podcast? Hmmmm…..

    Anyways, either Clint or Darrell proposed a theory that Olivia was able to recover from seeming brain death because her consciousness was still in transit from the alterverse. I just wanted to say, yes, I like that theory. Otherwise, I don’t see how she would be able to recover from a traumatic brain injury in a believable fashion. Realizing that believable is already a malleable standard given the subject matter. Of course, this makes the scene where Walter unbuckles her seatbelt somewhat extraneous.

    (Sorry, I sometimes can’t tell Clint and Darrell’s voices apart. But anyways, welcome back : )
