Skeptics Guide… of DEATH!

The new episode of Skeptics Guide to the Universe has an interview with l’il ol’ me, talking up my book and dissing asteroids and whatnot. Give it a listen! Come for the cosmic disaster, but stay for the “science or fiction”.

Oh: I made a mistake in the podcast. I said the Earth’s oceans will boil away in 100 million years. That number is wrong, it’s more like 2 billion years. An initial calculation I did said 100 million years, but that turned out to be wrong, and unfortunately the number stuck in my head. Sorry about any confusion.
