WARNING: Moderate spoilers in this episode! Ideally best listened after (or during) watching the movie. So, Endgame. There’s a ton of characters, emotion and history in there. And, like all superhero movies, there’s a fair bit of liberty taken on the factual or scientific part of things, which doesn’t mean we can’t deep dive! In particular, the Thanos snap in Infinity War that wiped out half of all life (oops, spoiler for that movie – but if you haven’t seen that by now, you probably don’t care). What implications would that actually have? Can we make do without half of all humans, trees, cows and (shudder) podcast hosts? Join the trio as they find out. Some fabulous videos on this concept:

Notes:

  • Eh, nothing whatsoever. By the nature of this kind of conversation, it can never be comprehensive; and the bits which they did focus on weren’t that interesting.
