How is QAnon coping with Trump’s loss?
Play • 26 min
As you might imagine, QAnon supporters believed that Donald Trump would handily win reelection. When he didn't, it blew a hole in the conspirac--hah, of course it didn't. New theories popped up to take its place, new 'loaves' were baked. New enemies were found. What can we learn from how the world's most dangerous conspiracy adapts to overwhelming evidence to the contrary? And can we find ways to help believers see the evidence in front of them?

Annamie Paul + the Political Panel with Jenni and Scott
Alright Herle Burly-ites, time for today’s pod. We’ve got another 2-parter for you today. For Part 1, I’m so pleased to welcome Annamie Paul, Leader of Green Party of Canada. We’re going to find out a lot more about Annamie over the next hour or so, but she’s been involved in civic life since she was 12 years old, working as a page in the Ontario Legislature. She’s holds a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Ottawa and a Master in Public Affairs from Princeton University. Prior to being elected leader of the Greens this past October, Annamie founded the Canadian Centre for Political Leadership and worked in several Civic Engagement and International Affairs positions. We’re going to talk about her life, the electoral positioning and prospects for the Greens, and where she intends to take that party. Part 2 of the podcast is our ever-lovin’, ever-hatin’, ever-opinionated Political Panel, with Jenni Byrne and Scott Reid. We have a lot to cover this week: from the politics of COVID lockdown to the insurrection south of the border, and from censorship to big tech. Thank you for joining us on The Herle Burly podcast.
