Writers Panel Throwback: Damon Lindelof (2012)
Listen now
Lost premiered 16 years ago today. Co-creator Damon Lindelof has been a frequent and welcome guest on the podcast. To celebrate Lost-iversary, revisit this conversation from 2012 when Damon was transitioning from massive TV success to movies like the Aliens tie-in Prometheus and JJ Abrams' Star Trek films.
