QAnon is a very American conspiracy theory, focussing upon a supposed plan by a mysterious entity named ‘Q’ who was working with Donald Trump to rid the US of a corrupt elite. But despite this American focus, it has adherents around the world. One of those adherents is a friend of this episode’s guest, Georgina.
Georgina and her friend were both fans of documentaries about cults, but despite what you right think of as inoculation against mind control, Georgina’s friend still fell deep down the QAnon rabbit hole.
This episode was recorded on Jan 5th, the day before the storming of the Capitol.
