Welcome to third episode of our "+1" podcast on the history of technology. This is an experiment, and there's no promise we'll keep up with this. But we do think it's important to ground discussions of contemporary technologies in a recognition there's a history to them.
This episode looks at the history of the Doomsday Clock.
- "It is now two and a half minutes to midnight" via The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists
- "Doomsday Prep for the Super-Rich" via The New Yorker
- Iron Maiden, "Two Minutes to Midnight"
- "First Hydrogen Bomb Test 1952"
Feedback is welcome. (You should email Kin with it though, not Audrey.)
