I missed both of these. :(

I will track them down though.

This is one of the sections of Requiem that I am looking forward to the most. I have always found myself rather comforted by the idea of entropy, and the natural breakdown of things.

I also have to wonder if they mentioned the phenomena of outgassing among petroleum products (plastics). I remember seeing the phenomena among old guitars, where the plastic parts on them would crumble due to the solvent used to bind the plastic together outgassing from the plastic. There were ways to repair the parts (superglue was one way I saw) but doing that one on a huge scale would be impossible)

The life after people was great. It drifted a little however in places, some of the stuff did seem a push. But that was mainly on x decades into the future.
The sections where it was up to 5 years was just creepy as they described the slow breakdown off humanitys infrastructure.

I really enjoyed After People. The whole time i was watching I was thinking about the City of Erech.

Still havn'r been able to catch all of Aftermath though.
