This week, Cat Carlson and Allie Stein are back to beg the question, yet again, “Why aren’t more people talking about this?” as they explore the creepy world of cults. More specifically, Internet-fueled cults, cyberpsychology, and how troll culture is impacting culture and democracy as a whole. The Suspect hosts will breakdown some seriously classic cult red flags, and how the new generation of “spiritual gurus” are recruiting their followers on social media. Plus, one of the most interesting men in the world, Rex Sorgatz, author of The Encyclopedia of Misinformation, weighs in on Internet culture, conspiracy theories, and how misinformation spreads. There’s something for everyone, and you might even learn a thing or two about avoiding cults. Or learn how to form one. Either way, listen to new episodes of Suspect every Wednesday.
We know, we know. Not another true-crime podcast! But Cat Carlson and Allie Stein are here to ask the question, “why aren’t more people talking about this?” as they explore the world of true crime and how it intersects with technology. This week, the Suspect hosts talk murder rates, F.B.I. profiling, social media-fueled murders, and the trend of “swatting,” amongst other true-crime tangents. Plus, a former F.B.I special agent weighs in on crime trends, cold cases, and general bad guys. Join us every Wednesday for new episodes of Suspect!
