In this conversation, we talk about trust, truth and trolls. Are conspiracy theories a new phenomenon? Do we believe authorities less than we used to? What is a Russian troll farm?
Eileen Culloty is an expert in conspiracy theories, and she has written recently about the half-truths and lies that were traded in the media about certain events in Syria’s civil war. We also talk about the moon landings, 9/11, climate change, and a lot of other things that may or may not actually be real.
