In his last book, "The World Without Us", author Alan Weisman imagined what the Earth would be like if humans suddenly disappeared. Now he explores a world with us.

His new book "Countdown" explores the "optimum population" to make sure we can stick around on this planet. Alan Weisman joins us in the studio with more.
