Matthew Sweet on conspiracy theorists and the media

This new edition of Michael Goldfarb's FRDH ('The First Rough Draft of History') podcast is well worth listening to.

Matthew Sweet explains how knowledge is intentionally corrupted by conspiracy friendly media and why people embrace these ideas.

Talking of Dr Sweet, this is a chance for me to recommend his book Inventing the Victorians, which shares my view that the Victorians were a lot less Victorian than we imagine.
