December 31, 1999: The world braced for disaster as midnight approached. Then, nothing happened. The hysteria over the Y2K computer bug quickly became an afterthought; a punch-line. In Surviving Y2K, Dan Taberski takes you back to the turn of the millennium to meet the people for whom it was anything but a joke — computer coders, conspiracy theorists, survivalists, and true believers — as they each face their own version of the apocalypse. And Dan tells a new millennium story of his own, about a decision that could destroy his life.
Headlong is Dan Taberski’s documentary podcast that explores the lives of overlooked people, moments and events in our culture. Season 1 was Missing Richard Simmons. Season 2 is Surviving Y2K.

I absolutely LOVED both of these podcasts. The story telling is amazing, interesting and fun, and the stories are touching. In the last episode about the y2k bug I cried. Just beautiful great use of music and all round, just lovely! Thank you! I can’t wait for season 3.

Terrible storyteller. Good topic.

A wonderful collection of stories

I love Dan’s writing. He has brought a collection of very different and unconnected stories - except for their connection with what happened (or didn’t happen) at the turn of the millennium and turned them into a wonderful podcast. Beautifully written and narrated. Loved it!!
