WELCOME TO NEED TO KNOW
On this month’s podcast, we are joined by author and journalist David Neiwert.
We discuss the latest Conspiracy Theories inspired by the Coronavirus and look at how many of those theories have their roots in far-right ideology.
We look at the economics of conspiracy theories, the dangers of conspiracy theories during a worldwide pandemic and Chris shares a few memories from his past as a conspiracy theorist.
David is the author of a fantastic book called "Alt America: The Rise of the Alt-Right in the Age of Trump". You can get a copy here: amzn.to/2PKvY5p and you can listen to our earlier interview with David about his book here: www.drycleanercast.co.uk/podcast/#/ep…ge-of-trump/
