Jason Colavito is a professional skeptic and author. His investigations have appeared on the American Heroes Channel and the History Channel. Colavito’s essays and commentary have also been featured by The New Republic and other leading publications. His forthcoming book is The Legends of the Pyramids.
Jason Colavito explains why today’s America is so sick with conspiracy theories and other anti-truth beliefs. He also outlines how right-wing extremists are using the public’s interest in ancient aliens, UFOs, and other conspiracy theories to recruit new members (especially insecure white men) online.
Colavito also details how the various elements of right-wing conspiracy culture such as QAnon, the UFO community, and other subcultures came together in the January 6 coup attempt and attack on the U.S. Capitol by Trump’s followers.
And Colavito shares what he believes the much-anticipated report by the Pentagon on “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” will actually reveal – hint: these “aircraft” are not “extraterrestrials”.
Chauncey DeVega continues to ponder why so many people are “shocked” by the new “revelations” about the true scale of Trump’s coup attempt and how perilously close American democracy really was to being overthrown on January 6.
And Chauncey shares what will likely be some unpopular opinions about the new films “In the Heights” and “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard”.
