Episode 59: We Go Into the Storm

February 14, 2021

Welcome back to Conversation on Tap

In this episode, Jose and Joel interviewed David Lafferty to discuss the state of QAnon since the 2020 election. 

But, first, Jose talked about his guilty pleasure: White Claw. Joel talked about a delicious peanut butter beer that he made at home.

For their FRED Talks, Jose talked about Gwen Stefani receiving an annulment, while Joel talked about an MIT study that showed fake news traveled faster than factual news.

In the main segment, Jose, Joel, and David Lafferty talked about QAnon. They started their conversation by looking at the quasi-religious and cult-like qualities of QAnon. They also discussed how utterly bizarre it was to see how this online conspiracy, found in the dark corners of the web, became such a beast that they were able to storm the Capitol. Many of QAnon's followers, they noted, had left the conspiracy theory altogether, while others looked to explain away inconsistencies by synthesizing QAnon with other conspiracy theories. Before they wrapped up, they discussed all of the ways that QAnon has been proven wrong over the years. A fascinating discussion!

In the final segment, Jose and Joel talked about what they have been watching: Jose talked about Ford V Ferrari, while Joel talked about Finding "Ohana."
