DTNS 3306 – “Flat Earth” is the Voltron of Conspiracy Theories

Conspiracy theories are a staple of the Internet. Posts about adulterated ingredients at fast food restaurants, videos about alleged political shenanigans, and forums discussing the latest evidence proving man’s greatest achievements were hoaxes find a ready audience online.

Starring Tom Merritt, Sarah Lane, Roger Chang and Justin Robert Young.
