S1 E31: Conspiracies and Conspiracy Theories (History Suite)

January 14, 2021 - 0 minute read

In the wake of last week’s siege of the US Capitol, we use history to make sense of conspiracy theories, conspiracies, and mob violence. In an unprecedentedly lonely time, the pressure release valves of societies seem to have led people to desire riotous group violence. In a sense, this is a bonus follow up to last semester’s insurgency series conducted by the History Suite. Joe Popp and Jeff Mallinson join regular host of this CUI Bono Cast series, military historian Caleb Karges.
