This week on The Method Section, Tom explores The Doomsday Clock! Although it sounds like something from a Lovecraftian horror story, it is in fact a very real tool updated each year. Listen in to find out who maintains it, why they do so, and how they decide where the clock hands should be placed! In a year of global catastrophe it provides an interesting perspective.
