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 is Missing Richard Simmons. Season 3 is Running From COPS.

Dope!

Just binged Y2K and Running from Cops. Amazing tone and pacing. Headlong is in a league of its own when it comes to reporting and story weaving. Much respect to Mr. Taberski. Keep up the good work!

Wow!

Absolutely amazing work! Definitely one of THE best podcasts I’ve ever listened to.
It’s sad, it’s funny and everything in between.

Very Good But.....

Episodes 1-6 were great, but the bonus episode was so tedious to listen to that I stopped with 5 minutes left.

It was like eating a terrific meal with one delicious course after the next followed by a terrible dessert.
