The End of Everything

Everything ends some time, but why are we so obsessed with apocalyptic narratives? All week long, The Takeaway is partnering with our friends at Scientific American to talk about The End. We’re talking about the mass extinctions the planet is facing, how we can keep ancient cultures alive, what happened when Scientific American’s editors asked their contributors how the world would end – and our listeners will weigh in with what inventions they wish had never been created in the first place.
