Episode 5 – Rumors




This time around, we return from a long absence with whispers and hearsay. We speak to two experts on the power of rumor in a variety of real-world situations. First, we discuss the importance of listening to medical rumors—even when we know they’re wrong. Second, we talk about the Satanic Panic’s connection to infighting among churches and the bigger role of rumor in global immigration.
