Library At The End Of The World

Library at the End of the World is hosted by noted survival and preparedness authority Jim Cobb. He's long been a fan of post-apocalyptic and disaster fiction and this show will focus on the books, TV shows, and movies that center on all the ways authors and directors have destroyed the world.

No interview this week but a quick discussion about one of Jim's favorite post-apocalypse series from the 80s - The Warlord by Jason Frost.  Imagine California even goofier than normal, separated from North America by a series of quakes and covered in a dome of impenetrable chemicals and radiation.  Fun times, my...
