If there is a silver lining to be taken from the year 2020, it's that people are opening their eyes to the predicament society has placed itself in. Economic recession, global pandemic, and violence in the streets. Natural disasters, political divisiveness, and food shortages. Like many, you may be apprehensive about the future and have a gut feeling that things aren't quite right, but aren't able to place your finger on why. Breaking Down: Collapse takes the complex ideas surrounding the ultimate collapse of modern industrial society and simplifies them so they're easier to learn. The topic is taught from the perspective of collapse-aware Kory introducing it to his good friend Kellan (who probably doesn't realize what he's signed up for!).Like all societies throughout history, ours will experience an inevitable decline caused by our relentless desire for progress. It's not a conspiracy, but rather the natural consequences of a society growing beyond the limits of its finite planet.

If you aren’t listening to this podcast what are you even doing with your life
Seriously, this is single handedly the best collapse podcast out there for newbs.
Have you found yourself thinking “somethings not right here?”, feel like society is digging its own hole, or just get a deep sense of impending doom? Kory and Kellen have some pretty damn good explanations.
Y’all. This podcast gets me hype for the weeks to come and my only complaint is that they don’t push out episodes biweekly.
Love you both keep up the good work.
