What Could Go Wrong?

What could go wrong? EVERYTHING. Inveterate worriers Jeremiah and Krissy discuss what can — and will — go wrong in a given situation. Moderator Jeff steers the doom bus and keeps the tangents manageable.

We update every Monday. There will be a heat-death of the universe, and it will be on a Monday. You will be able to hear us tell you how the ending of all things could go wrong as you sit at your desk, streaming this podcast, pretending to work.

If you have pressing matters that require prompt pessimism, you may beseech our wisdom here.

We're on the iTunes!

Theme song by the wonderful Nicole Dieker.
