#148 – The Many Ways The World Could End: Artificial Intelligence, Nuclear War, Pandemics & Environmental Degradation With Jesse McKinnell
Dec 12th, 2021
Jesse McKinnell; author of Dead Cats and Anarchy & Other Lies, returns to GCC to discuss some end-of-the-world theories as we near the end of 2021!
In more detail, Jesse & Mike confirm what they define as an apocalypse or end-of-the-world situation and a couple of movie examples before delving into their personal opinions on how likely it is that each world-ending situation could occur and what the consequences may be for each one. They discuss the possibilities of aliens, artificial intelligence, nuclear war, another pandemic and environmental degradation/climate change causing the end of the world, and more!
And check out Jesse’s previous appearance on GCC, on episode 140 where he talks about his two books, being an author and a boring dystopia!
In the last episode of GCC, number 147, Mike spoke with Jamie of the Talking Dad UK who starts by explaining the premise of his podcast as well as why he started it, they then talk about their mutual love of religious architecture and cemeteries before discussing how many men aren’t comfortable discussing emotions. Towards the end they talk about music (listening & playing), how Jamie’s son responds to it and their mutual love of live shows, so it’s an episode that covers a lot of ground!
