Team Human


Bryan Walsh "Avoiding Apocalypse" + Adrienne Haynes "Community Empowerment"

Ep. 137

Playing for Team Human today, former TIME International Editor, Bryan Walsh & attorney and business woman Adrienne Haynes.

Bryan Walsh shares his thoughts on why the end of humankind seems inevitable and the ways we might avoid imminent crisis. In his new book, End Times: A Brief Guide to the End of the World, Walsh explores how the threats of asteroids, super volcanoes, nuclear war, climate change, disease pandemics, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, and extraterrestrial intelligence might actually be avoided through innovative news ideas and collective action.
