We listen back to an interview with John Hodgman who in 2011 published his third — and to believe the title, last — compendium of world knowledge: "That Is All." And it came not a moment too soon, because as Hodgman knows, and tells us, civilization is coming to an end. World governments will collapse. Currencies will be replaced by beef jerky. All this by the end of 2012.

But for our entertainment while we wait, Hodgman provides plenty of "information" on sports, wine and insider tips for living the high life of a deranged millionaire.
