Podcast #92 – Conspiracy Theory & Community Radio
4 days ago
Mae Brussell hosted radio shows focused on the JFK Assassination, fascism and other conspiracies on community radio stations KLRB an KAZU in the 1970s and 1980s. Brussell’s brand of broadcasting represents a strain of community radio show thatcontinues to be found, often to the chagrin of program directors and boards of directors. Matthew Lasar joins the show to share some of what he learned about Brussell in preparing for his own course on the history of conspiracy theories at UC Santa Cruz, leading a discussion that brings us up to today.
Before we dance the conspiracy-a-go-go, Paul updates us on the FCC’s proposed rulemaking to undo the 2015 Open Internet order and network neutrality. Then Matthew explains why and how public comments on these rulemakings actually make a difference.
