This episode is half coronavirus, half profile. Host Jared Holt speaks to Vanity Fair reporter Caleb Ecarma about whether Trump’s conspiracy theories about the coronavirus have doomed his strongest base of supporters. Then, he’s joined by Juliet Jeske, an amateur researcher responsible for exposing and crippling Gavin McInnes and the Proud Boys. Jeske has not revealed her role publicly until now.
