The Muckrake Political Podcast


Feb 26, 2021

In this excerpt of their Patreon show The Weekender, Jared Yates Sexton and Nick Hauselman discuss the manufactured outrage from the right over things as trivial as Hasbro renaming their spud universe "Potato Head." Plus, they take a deep dive into the documentary "Room 237" which is a film about conspiracy theories surrounding Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. While these theories pertain to a seminal pop culture touchstone, it's also easy to trace how this thought process can permeat the political landscape and lead to the toxicity we see today.
