For many, apocalypse brings to mind breakdown, collapse, cataclysm, or destruction on a vast scale. The word comes to modern English from ancient Greek. Its roots apo (un-) and kaluptein (to cover) hint at its original meaning: the uncovering of truth. Embracing Apocalypse explores the many truths being uncovered by the tumult of our times, and openly wonders how we might best show up for, and adapt to, our changing world. The show is hosted by Eric Garza.
