Hooked

After the first episode I was hooked . Very provocative subject , storytelling superb. A must listen for anyone wondering why so many friends , loved ones , and acquaintances become mouthpieces for the most radical and absurd theories found on the internet .

Distorted reality in a pandemic

What this podcast does is reveal founding principles of why we as humans are so drawn to the internet, particularly now that we have more time on our hands due to Covid-19. Unpacking the layers requires time and commitment to understanding how conspiracy theories are popularized. Excellent reporting, will forward to my friends.
