Tackling the “Doppelganger” & Disinformation

Season 4 Episode 424 | 26m 46s

In her new book, "Doppelganger: A Trip into the Mirror World”, award-winning journalist Naomi Klein describes being confused with Naomi Wolf, a conspiracy-minded anti-vaxxer. In this conversation, Klein describes researching doppelgangers and listening to conspiracist Steve Bannon's podcasts, in order to uncover why we have shadow selves, and how disinformation and conspiracy theories gain power.
