This Is Not A Drill

9:30 AM GMT on November 12, 2023

    This Is Not A Drill - Longtime readers of this newsletter will be familiar with Doomsday Watch, a podcast that explored all the threats that humanity is currently facing (I know that might sound bleak, but trust me it was a highly engrossing series.) 

    Well, the podcast has got a new name and a new host, Gavin Esler. It also has a slightly rejigged focus, looking now at threats to global stability, such as Trump re-entering the Whitehouse, rather than the absolute worst threats facing our humanity (although Trump re-entering the White House would be of course bad). What remains in the podcast is sharp analysis and well considered guests. 

    And, bizarrely, each episode doesn’t add anxiety. The more you know about these issues, the more knowledge you have at your disposal.
