S4 E1: 100 Seconds to Midnight: The History of the Doomsday Clock

I'm really excited about this episode!

I know quite a few of you already knew the history of the Doomsday Clock. It was interesting for me to do the research on it and go back to 1947. I wasn't around then, I wouldn't come along until the Vietnam war was in full swing. 

The only thing I remember about the Doomsday Clock was the Cold War. 

I found the evolution really interesting. Moving from nuclear concerns to climate change, then to disruptive technology and emerging disease. 

I hope that you enjoyed this episode as much as I did. I also hope that it helps more people understand the concept behind the 100 Seconds to Midnight episodes. 

Please feel free to let me know what you think of these episodes. I think they're a good break from specific disease and a good learning experience for me as well as you.
