On this week’s episode of Yeah Nah Pasaran!, I rejoin Cam to talk to Mike Rothschild [Twitter] about his NEW! book The Storm Is Upon Us: How QAnon Became a Movement, Cult, and Conspiracy Theory of Everything (Hachette Australia, 2021) — which is pretty much what it says on the tin.

And in case you missed it, last week (July 15) Cam spoke to Talia Lavin, the author of Culture Warlords, about the January 6 Capitol riot/insurrection and Deplatform Hate, while on July 8 The Good Doctor spoke to Dr Kaz Ross about every ABC journalist’s favourite ‘Leninist’, Steve Bannon.
