Inspired by “Humans Are Speeding Extinction and Altering the Natural World at an ‘Unprecedented’ Pace” from The New York Times, May 6, 2019.
Who knew extinction could be the hottest ticket in town? Manuel Gonzales, the author of The Regional Office Is Under Attack! and The Miniature Wife, imagines a time when people pay to attend Extinction Witnessing Events. It’s a dark, far-fetched idea. And uncomfortably plausible. Just remember: the larger and more beautiful the animal (say, your Amur Leopards and Asian Elephants), the higher the price of admission.
Narrated by Edoardo Ballerini. Hosted by Ashley C. Ford.
