Why'd we get all those guys? Well, we talk about apocalypses and post-apocalyptic movies so much on this site, but, at the end of the day, we're just a bunch of people who spend way too much time watching movies (we have no other skills). We know what we'd do in an apocalypse scenario (die, probably slowly and painfully), and we know which apocalypse we HOPE happens (the one where we die, but faster), but it turns out we don't know too much about them and certainly nothing about how to prevent them. That's why we turned to actual scientists who are paid to think about the apocalypse and an actual screenwriter who is paid to write some of those apocalyptic movies we watch.
Watch the podcast above, which covers everything from Captain Planet to how new ways of brewing beer will save us from a future where we'd have to drink our own pee (really), and click here to listen to the rest of the podcast which we created with GE to dissect the scientific game-changers in GE and National Geographic's "Breakthrough" series.
Also, follow us on Facebook. Or don't. But please do because we like you.
