79: What does QAnon mean for Japan?
On Jan. 6, the U.S. Capitol came under siege from a mob of Trump supporters, incited by the former president. The attack was condemned around the world and shone a spotlight onto the dangerous misinformation and conspiracies that fueled the riots. One that has come under particular scrutiny is QAnon, a conspiracy that dates to 2017 and that has picked up a significant following in the U.S. But, says Bloomberg’s Max Zimmerman, the U.S. is not the only country to have supporters of the QAnon conspiracy, and a fringe group of followers has also developed here in Japan. Sponsor: This episode is brought to you by Oizumi Kojo, Japan's first commercial brewer of kombucha. They’ve just launched their new online store, where you can buy KOMBUCHA_SHIP (http://bit.ly/kombuship) , bottled kombucha that's delivered straight to your door.
