The world was supposed to end one hundred years ago on Dec. 17. Experts denied it was so. Newspapers promised it wasn't to be. And in the end, it didn't happen. But that didn't mean it was the end of such predictions.

Kelly Burdick and Christina Knott discuss how the end of the world that never was and the reaction leading up the end -- and the days after -- in Northern New York.

Episode is edited by Christina Knott. Intro music is "Nobody Calls It San Fran" by Coyote Hearing. Outro music is "The Papergirl" by The Whole Other.
