"On “The Daily Show,” correspondent Jordan Klepper has the unenviable task of regularly attending Trump rallies and interviewing the former president’s fanatical base. At the events, he became increasingly aware of conspiracy theories passed among his faithful, including QAnon loyalists who believe in the existence of an elite leftist cabal that drinks baby blood. While it’s easy to write off these theories as fringe nonsense, they’re unfortunately widespread — and sometimes amplified by Twitter’s new overlord, Elon Musk. This podcast breaks down each of these theories, as Klepper is joined by academics to trace their surprising histories, with enough jokes to keep things from getting too bleak."
