Episode Information
If you're a conspiracy buff, then Q is the new biggest thing. It's a massive, all-encompassing, crowd-sourced conspiracy theory whose tenets are diverse but center around the idea of Donald Trump waging a secret war against a global cabal of elite paedophiles (who may also be evil wizards). It's also rapidly beginning to spill over into the real world, with local adherents cropping up in New Zealand's recent general election, and American Q believers making up a major component of the group who recently staged an armed takeover of the Capitol. Musician and conspiracy fan Vorn Colgan (Vorn, The Wellington Sea Shanty Society) joins the podcast to discuss the appeal of Q both to its believers and its outside followers, and the ethics and implications of this kind of movement.
