The Beginning, and The End

• March 18th, 2017

Welcome to Looking Back At LOST! This LOST rewatch podcast project was first conceived in December 2010, started to release episodes in February 2011, and ran without a stop until August 15th (8/15), 2013.

Every episode of the series was covered in chronological order, with stops along the way for the webisodes and discussions about the music; the podcast concluded with the show's epilogue "The New Man in Charge."
During the course of the project my daughter was born, my wife and I bought a house and our neck of the woods was hit square on with a serious hurricane. Each week, the podcast carried on. Looking Back at LOST was a labor of love... and I miss it dearly.
