Our world flips between indifferent and outwardly-hostile to human life. The common thread holding every disasterous event in history is the spectacle. But once a disaster becomes a human disaster, it becomes so much more. Doomsday is here to explore the most traumatic, bizarre and most awe-inspiring but largely unheard-of disasters from throughout human history and around the world including the science behind every disturbing detail. If you like shipwrecks, decapitations, things that melt, living blankets of insects and people screaming for their lives, Doomsday is the podcast for you.
