The Value of Everything: Fact and Fiction in Conspiracy Theories

VoE104

Dissecting the material bases behind popular conspiracies.

In episode 104 of The Value of Everything, Charles Owen and I trace the genealogy of several consequential conspiracy theories, consider the promise and perils of independent media, criticize speech censorship and groupthink, analyze various social management projects undertaken by Western governments in recent decades, discuss the latest news in the American election cycle and its ramifications, and stress the benefits of critical inquiry.

Listeners exhausted with our lengthy, mechanical discussions on political economy will likely consider this episode a welcome change of pace.
