Wrapping up our Apocalypse series with the most depressing scenario we could think of - the cosmic apocalypse and the honest truth that we mean nothing. The Ghouls are talking about how the universe can kill us, how we've only been here a moment and how the end is nigh!

This week the Ghouls are talking about the good, green Earth and how we're destroying it leading it to inevitably strike back with natural disasters and resource depletion.

Night Shyamalan right when he made a film about the trees killing us?!

Its the end of the world and we are telling you all about it. This week the Ghouls are tackling the nuclear holocaust - including information on Chernobyl, Hiroshima and the real-life lack of fail-safes our own government had when handling the big bombs.
