Flirting with the End of the World

RussianEarlyWarningSystemIn my second run at a storytelling podcast, I thought I’d shift gears and shoot for something more historical than personal.

I tackle a crucial but probably underreported event that arguably affected just about every single person on the planet.

This is the story of the most important man in the world.

Chances are, you don’t know his name.

But you probably owe him a thank you.

    Reblogged this on The Axis of Ego and commented:

    With the passing of Stanislav Petrov, I thought it would be a good time to revisit his story.

    I can say without exaggeration that Petrov saved the world in 1983.
