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.
