    Super Volcano

    Super Volcano

    In the late 90s my friend Michelle and I sat in a darkened Brisbane cinema totally enthralled by disaster film Dante’s Peak. Apart from the glory of Pierce Brosnan the thought, that mother nature could annihilate life on Earth by eruption of a SUPER volcano was tantalising that’s what I’m seeking to myth-bust today - DOOMSDAY by SUPER VOLCANO

ShandraM ,

So happily surprised

I heard about this podcast but thought it wasn’t for me because I’m not a ‘Doomsdayer’ but I gave it a listen and it’s great! Wendy brings such a great balance of journalist curiosity and respectful humour that has opened my understanding of the thinking behind preppers... looking forward to more episodes!
