It's been 1 year and 9 months since we last dove into one of your FAVORITE topics and we figured... it was time.
This week we are discussing CONSPIRACY THEORIES!! Ashley is joined by Handsome Joe as they discuss multiple facets of modern conspiracies and showing you that, in fact, they've been around longer than you think.
Ashley is going to be focusing on the Anti-Vaccine movement and the history of Vaccine Hesitancy while sharing facts and debunking the most famous myths.
Joe is not only bringing a psychological profile of the type of person who gets sucked into conspiracy theories but he's also going to be teaching us WHY conspiracies seem to be running rampant in the world today.
As usual with these bad boys: WARNING: This episode contains discussions involving politics and can be stress inducing.
