In the final part of our discussion on the coming technological apocalypse, we discuss that ever-present threat, nuclear war. Whether it's the WOPR going haywire or Major Kong taking his final ride to glory, the idea that nukes could rain from the sky and wipe out our entire species has been a touchstone of politics and pop culture for decades. So, please join us while we once again portend our own doom in this installment of A Brief History of the End of Days.
