BoA delves back into the world of conspiracy theories in a big way with journalist Anna Merlan, author of Republic of Lies: American Conspiracy Theorists and Their Surprising Rise to Power. Over the course of this freewheeling conversation, we discuss how she wound up researching conspiracy theorists, her experiences meeting and talking to the everyday people who passionately believe these often extreme ideas, the often untold stories of people who were unwittingly and unwillingly swept up in conspiracy theories because of tragedies that befell their loved ones, such as Sandy Hook and the Seth Rich murder, the creepy evolution from 911 to Q Anon, how everyone today is a conspiracy theorist in some way, and the literal trials and tribulations of Sean David Morton. Plus, of course, tons more.
