From Nostradamus to the Book of Revelations, we are a species obsessed with our potential extinction. We're perpetually paranoid about cataclysmic events, and yet we're still here—for now. In this new Crave Original series, Jay Baruchel dives into our collective fears to dispel (or in some cases verify) the hype and calculate the odds of apocalyptic events, from nuclear Armageddon to a massive asteroid impact. Visiting bomb shelters and questioning experts, he discovers the real risks we face may be the ones we ignore. With his playful wit and boundless curiosity, Baruchel takes what could be a depressing issue and somehow manages to find light in the darkness. We all know we're gonna kick the bucket sooner or later, but it's the how that makes for an entertaining guessing game in this non-fiction series. Alexander Rogalski
