Hollywood’s a disaster

The latest edition of the Are We Alone program is up, where astronomer Seth Shostak and I talk (and diss) Hollywood doomsday movies (here’s the direct link to the MP3). My segment opens with A Dramatic Reading from my book, Death from the Skies!, and also has interviews with my friends and fellow astronomers David Morrison and Lynn Rothschild.

If you’ve ever watched an astronomically-based disaster movie and yelled “That can’t happen!” at the screen, then take a listen. The next time you yell at a movie, you can give it specifics.
