“Apocalypse” (March 22, 2014)
Today you are cordially invited to The Apocalypse.
First up, Andrew explores the complexities of human ageing and death via a Beat poem (no, you didn’t misread that). Then we discuss whether human overpopulation is causing the downfall of civilisation, including a chat with Dr Kath Handasyde from the University of Melbourne regarding her work controlling overpopulated koalas. Finally, we hear from our resident astrophysicist Nathanael Lampe, who leads us five billion years into the future to discover Planet Earth’s ultimate, inescapable fate.
