The prevalence of misinformation and conspiracy theories have become a growing point of concern in the last few years, in light of its clear impact on politics and culture in Indiana and around the world.

Today we talk to a professor about the psychology behind conspiratorial thinking, and a media expert about what role the news and social media play.

Produced by Drew Daudelin.
