Do tough times create tougher people? Can humanity handle the power of its weapons without destroying itself? And will our world ever become a ruin for archaeologists to dig up and explore? No one knows for sure, but the creator of the award-winning podcast Hardcore History offers some intriguing answers as he looks at some of the apocalyptic moments from the past as a way to frame the challenges of the future. Erudite yet conversational, Dan Carlin's tour of potential apocalypses is also a look at the imperfect yet revealing ways that we use history to document who we are and what we have experienced.
