There are a whole lot of shenanigans to call out on this episode. We have a special commentary by Jeb Card about the spooky stuff in association with Hopkinsville, Kentucky and the upcoming eclipse. Listen to get a primer for what might be popular in the media from now until then.
Torkel and I discuss an update of the Seth Rich story (a Fox News manufactroversy), a fatal attempt to find a buried treasure of dubious origin, a tactic to discredit skeptics on Facebook, the framing and filming of Ghost Hunters “reality TV” show, sensational headlines by what we think of as a reputable science news site, and haunted hotel room video that people take great glee in either believing or debunking.
