This week's episode of the SETI radio program "Are We Alone" is up, complete with my semi-regular contribution to the segment "Skeptic Check". The show's theme is apocalyptic scenarios real and imagined, so astronomer Seth Shostak and I talk about various forms of both. Supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, slamming into molecular clouds, the death of the Universe, and of course the Mayan 2012 end times-o-rama. The whole show is pretty cool, so go check out the Are We Alone page, or if you're impatient you can just directly download the MP3.
