Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories in Psychedelia

Plus Three | October 5, 2020

Terence McKenna once mused, “Conspiracy theory is a kind of epistemological cartoon about reality.” Looking around at the world, things appear awfully cartoonish at the moment. We’re joined by Psymposia Senior Writer, Russell Hausfeld, to discuss the propagation of coronavirus conspiracies, recent revelations about QAnon, and the likelihood that some “conspiracy” claims are simply warped articulations of systemic critique. 5G won’t give you COVID-19, but it sure will help you download this episode faster.

Co-hosts: Brian Normand, Neşe Devenot, David Nickles, Brian Pace, Russell Hausfeld. Editor: Matt Payne.
