Inspiration for Archive Bomb

War of the Worlds episode on Radiolab. It's a good analogy for the archive bomb idea we've been developing. Below is a summary from the website:


An examination of the power of mass media to create panic. In Radio Lab's very first live hour, we take a deep dive into one of the most controversial moments in broadcasting history - Orson Welles' 1938 radio play about Martians invading New Jersey. And we ask: Why did it fool people then? And why has it continued to fool people since? From Santiago, Chile to Buffalo, New York to a particularly disastrous evening in Quito, Ecuador.
