This week, contributor Matt Ruby and guest Rex Sorgatz, author of The Encyclopedia of Misinformation, return to analyze misinformation they identify in recent events and culture. We’re also joined by contributor Jacqueline Soller to discuss the recently released movie, Unsane. Along the way, we’ll also hear from Radio Dispatch’s Molly Knefel with her thoughts on the ways in which adults are reacting to the teen activists from Parkland, Florida and we’ll hear from a person named Kirby, who told us about her path to finding her identity.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
