    The Return of the 9/11 Conspiracy Left, Restrategizing & How to Turn Over More Stones

    September 11th 20th Anniversary Part 1 of 2: The Return of the 9/11 Conspiracy Left, Restrategizing & Turning Over More Stones

    Abby and Robbie Martin talk to independent researcher Gumby for a two-part 9/11 20 year anniversary Media Roots Radio special. In light of the Spike Lee controversy about his 9/11 HBO series, they discuss the history of all the prominent officials and Hollywood celebrities that spoke out and questioned the official story, and how that legacy has been whitewashed today. After taking listeners through how the early 9/11 truth movement reached a critical mass within anti-George W Bush liberalism, they reflect how activists could better strategize in lieu of the new opening of discussion around the attacks in 2021. In Part 2, all the media hype surrounding the 20th anniversary is discussed as is the inevitable backlash that came for 9/11 truthers within leftism itself.

More reporting like the Uganda report

My Comment on Abby’s comment on the show about the Ugandan episode being overlooked. I loved your show on Uganda I thought it was one of the best researched and most original content available. I was a little disappointed that it was so short lived and your shows went back to the normal hot topics. That said I am a listener to all your reporting, even your perspectives on the mainstream common fare topics. But would really love to hear more pioneering research and reporting on this show and Empire files. Thank you

Deep takes

Abby and Robbie always investigate their stories. I learn something each time I listen and they have a sense of humor. This is exactly what I look for in a podcast.
