Learn about the potential solutions for the potential disaster! Some of them are really wacky!

Hello Buddies! Allow me to paint you a picture: The year was 1999! Panic swept the land as the new year approached and with the terrifying possibility of the Y2K Virus! Planes would fall from the sky! We'd be launched back to the Great Depression! Nuclear weapons would be launched worldwide! We counted down as the big ball dropped and on 0... nothing happened. Well, actually a few relatively minor (though in one case incredibly shocking and horrible thing happened) things occurred, but we did not find ourselves in a new Stone Age. We're joined this week by Todd Anderson and Stephen Skelton of The Film Pigs to discuss the Apocalypse that almost was and what we can learn from it. You should probably hurry up and download before your computer glitches...
