For some, the looming apocalypse isn’t terrifying. It’s a dream come true.
The final days of the year are upon us, and Dan faces a millennium decision that could ruin the rest of his life.
A very Russian love story. The first baby. Sixteen hostages at gunpoint. As the new millennium dawns across the globe, three stories of lives defined at the stroke of midnight.
We’re all still here. Now what?
You can’t predict when disaster will strike. Even when it’s marked on your calendar with a big, red X.
In this bonus interview, comedian Josh Gondelman (Desus and Mero, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver) tells Dan the story of his Y2K, when he was 14. It’s a tale of vengeance, as Josh and his friends take action on behalf of all the other nerdy 90's teenagers who were promised spectacular technological disaster and got a lame New Year’s party instead.
