On cable channels you’ll find loads of “documentaries” breathlessly telling you about supervolcanoes and how Yellowstone is going to kill everyone. Possibly also involving aliens.

So it was nice to see this public lecture on supervolcanoes and what they actually are (and are not), their history in the Pacific northwest and the science behind it all. It’s an hour and a bit long and makes for a good listen on a lazy weekend morning.
