Abstract: The longstanding 4.2 sigma muon g-2 anomaly is perhaps the largest discrepancy in fundamental physics and could become the first laboratory discovery of physics beyond the Standard Model. In this talk, I will categorize the different theoretical possibilities for BSM physics that resolve the anomaly and present a road map for how to discover the new particles responsible (even in a worst case "nightmare" scenario). A decisive probe of the underlying new physics will involve a combination of rare meson decay searches, new muon beam fixed-target experiments, and possibly even a future muon collider.
