Earth Week is a weeklong series of events on the environment and climate change leading up to Earth Day (April 22, 2023).

Join us for conversations, performances and more focused on celebrating and protecting our planet.

Hollywood is full of big screen metaphors and on-the-nose cliches about climate change.

And it turns out audiences love a disaster flick, from world-ending meteor strikes to the next ice age or even the mysterious switching of the planet’s polarity.

But IN A WORLD… where we actually need to talk about the real issues we’re facing, can disaster movies help?

Join Endless Thread podcast co-host Ben Brock Johnson and the WBUR Podcasts team for a night of absurdity, fun and some real discussion of what our blockbuster movie industry has gotten wrong—and right—about the greatest existential threat humanity has ever faced.

You will have the power to choose which decisions we make to stop a world-ending climate threat inspired by scenes from our favorite disaster films.

Along the way, we’ll check in with a panel of experts who will help us understand if any of these events could ever happen and, if so, how we can navigate the real future.


Vincenzo Bollettino — director of the program on resilient communities and national NGO program on humanitarian leadership, Harvard University

Kathleen Masterson — assistant managing editor of climate and environment, WBUR

Samantha Montano — author of “Disasterology: Dispatches from The Frontlines of The Climate Crisis” and assistant professor of emergency management, Massachusetts Maritime Academy
