This week, we have a conversation between contributor Matt Ruby and his guest, Rex Sorgatz, author of The Encyclopedia of Misinformation, which is described as a compendium of fakes, conspiracies, and self-delusions through time. They discuss the book and how it relates to history and current events. We’re also joined by new contributor Winston Cook-Wilson to discuss the recently released movie, The Death Of Stalin. Along the way, we’ll also hear from Radio Dispatch’s Molly Knefel with her thoughts on Cynthia Nixon and other politicians getting into politics; we’ll hear from a woman named Yanelli, who told us about seeing her estranged father after ten years; and we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by Los Angeles band Cheekface, from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
