Quantum-Leap-LHO Bonus

On this Bonus Episode of the Quantum Leap Podcast, we analyze Quantum Leap: Lee Harvey Oswald, the season five opener that found Sam Beckett Leaping into the eponymous assassin!

This is also a Barren Space crossover event, as Albie welcomes 11.22.63: An Event Podcast hosts Skipper Martin and Christopher DeFilippis, and Thinking Outside The Long Box host Juan Muro.

We start off our group discussion with spoiler-free first impressions, and then hand the reigns over to Skipper and Christopher as they dive deep into this game-changing episode of Quantum Leap.

We also have interviews with veteran actor Elya Baskin, who played Major Yuri Kosenko in the episode, and colorist Bryan McMahan, who worked behind the scenes on Quantum Leap during seasons 3-5.

If you enjoy this special episode, you can here more of Skipper and Christopher on the 11.22.63 Podcast, where they talk about 11.22.63, the Hulu event miniseries, and the Stephen King novel on which it’s based.

Oh boy!
