Conspiracy theorists are easy to laugh at, right? Well, yeah, until it's your loved one spewing out those convoluted and plainly BS beliefs at the family dinner. This is exactly what happened to Kasey...Show More

A journalist’s mother who’s a science teacher suddenly believes the earth is flat and even spoke at the flat earth convention. What would you do if your family became full on conspiracy theorists? Shocking and saddening episode 😢

@mm This scenario is hitting home for too many folks these days. Can I ask if it presents solutions? I just have to budget my energy accordingly.

@fiercefab No, it doesn’t present solutions. More a first person account of the situation and how the individual is figuring out how to cope with it in order to still have a mom and a grandmother for her kids. It’s tough 😔

@mm I ended up listening anyway and I will say that it was valuable in a different way. The three types of replies she got were fascinating to me. Thank you for recommending ♥️

@fiercefab ♥️ Glad you enjoyed it. Definitely one of the most human episodes about conspiracy theorists I've heard. Kudos to @phocks for finding this gem and recommending it to the rest of us! :)
