You'd be referring to Coast to Coast AM with George Norri? Actually,
I catch about a half-hour of it before the local talk show comes on.
"No contact with reality" doesn't begin to describe most of the
guests on there. He brings in an occasional one that's for real,
though; a couple of weeks ago he had an author on who wrote a book
about the Antikythera Mechanism, a Roman-era device that has a lot
of scientists puzzled.

Of course not; if the world ends, there won't be anyone to see.
