Podcast 105: Parkland School Shooting Conspiracies, Russia Russia Russia, Black Panther

In this week’s episode, John and Adam tackle the Parkland School Shooting conspiracies, the disinformation, and outright bullshit surrounding this tragic event.

Shouts of “False Flag” and “Crisis Actors” are all too common these days and, far more often than not, without merit. We’ll dissect these claims and, hopefully, contribute a little critical thinking to the conversation.

Hey, and we learned a new term: Gish Gallop.

In the second half, John breaks down the recent Mueller indictments of the 13 so-called “Russian Trolls”, who apparently had so much influence they were able to swing an entire election. This whole thing is starting to turn into a bad Hollywood comedy.

Hey, and we learned another new term: Whataboutism.

And finally, Adam provides a brief explanation for all the recent Black Panther hype. Hint: Marketing.
