    • Science

Guests, Craig Weiler and Rob Heatherly are both experts on the Guerrilla Skeptics of Wikipedia. Craig first exposed them in 2013 in his book PSI WARS: TED, Wikipedia and the Battle for the Internet, and Rob recently did a deep dive into Wikipedia to unearth their darkest secrets. Collectively, they depict a clandestine entity exercising influence over segments of Wikipedia for more than ten years. Guerrilla Skeptics manipulate articles spanning diverse subjects, such as parapsychology and UAPs, to fit their skeptical narrative, while tarnishing the reputations of prominent figures whom they deem as promoters of pseudoscience.
