67 – “They Knew: How a Culture of Conspiracy Keeps America Complacent” with Sarah Kendzior

Sarah Kendzior is the New York Times bestselling author of Hiding in Plain Sight and The View from Flyover Country.  Today we discuss her third book, “They Knew: How a Culture of Conspiracy Keeps America Complacent” which delves into the world of conspiracy theories and their impact on American society.  She argues that the proliferation of conspiracy theories has eroded trust in institutions, undermined democracy, and hindered collective action to address pressing issues.

Kendzior is known for her reporting on St. Louis, her coverage of the 2016 election, and her academic research on authoritarian states. She was named by Foreign Policy as one of the "100 people you should be following on Twitter to make sense of global events." Her reporting has been featured in many publications, including Politico, Slate, The Atlantic, Fast Company, The Chicago Tribune, TeenVogue, The Globe and Mail, and The New York Times. She lives in St. Louis.
