I've been a fan of the post-apocalyptic genre for as long as I can remember. Shows like Logan's Run, Ark II and Thundarr the Barbarian started me down the road. Movies like The Day After and Threads kept me going. And books like Alas, Babylon, Earth Abides and The Stand sealed the deal. I still try to keep up with new releases in the genre, but a good old-fashioned plague or nuclear apocalypse is still my favorite.

On the 8th Day – Nuclear Winter Documentary (1984)

“On The 8th Day” is chilling, a result entirely consistent with its aim. The one-hour documentary explores the possible ecological and atmospheric consequences of nuclear war, particularly as they would be expressed in a ”nuclear winter.” Darkness would shroud the Northern Hemisphere; temperatures would fall.

A Pail of Air by Fritz Leiber

“A Pail of Air” is a science fiction short story by Fritz Leiber which appeared in the December 1951 issue of Galaxy Magazine and was dramatized on the radio show X Minus One in March 1956.

Destructomundo Podcast on Archive.org

I started this blog, called Doomorama back then, in October of 2005.  One of my inspirations for starting a post-apocalyptic blog was a new podcast that had started just a few months before, covering most of the same topics that I was interested in, called Destructomundo.
