Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Mitch and Tom as they put on their tinfoil hats and delve into the mysterious world of conspiracy theories! Covering everything from the anti-vax community and how people think the new 5G towers are spreading COVID-19, to how the world ended in 2012 and the Queen is actually a lizard person. The boys approach what drives people to believe in conspiracy theories in the first place and what we can do to combat the misinformation out there in the world. Music by: Joakim Karud –
