Author and columnist David Moscrop hosts a one-on-one conversation with New York Times Bestselling author, and co-host of the acclaimed podcast Gaslit Nation, Sarah Kendzior.  

 

In her latest book, They Knew: How a Culture of Conspiracy Keeps America Complacent , Kendzior delves into the difference between conspiracy and conspiracy theory.


They Knew discusses conspiracy culture in a rapidly declining United States struggling with corruption, climate change, and other crises. Here, for the first time, Kendzior blends her signature whip-smart prose and eviscerating arguments with lyrical and intimate examinations of the times and places that haunt American history. 

 

“America is a ghost story,” writes Kendzior, as she unearths decades of buried history, providing an essential and critical look at how to rebuild our democracy by confronting the political lies and crimes that have shaped us.
