About The Show

September’s Crooked Mini will take a look at the rising popularity of political and anti-government conspiracy theories. We’ll trace back to some of the earliest and most popular conspiracies and how the political and cultural environment contributed to widespread distrust in news, politics and media. Hosted by Professor Kathryn Olmsted, an expert in conspiracy theories, government secrecy, espionage, counterintelligence, and anticommunism, this series will look at the current state of conspiracies and how the Trump administration has contributed to the normalization and spreading of false information.
