Lies sell better than ever, according to Andy Kroll, who debunks one of the most virulent conspiracies of recent times while ML, Marc and Shawn wonder why they never see Joe – and whether he’s just a voice in their heads.

STRAIGHT DOPE: Andy Kroll of ProPublica zooms in to discuss his book “A Death on W Street: The Murder of Seth Rich and the Age of Conspiracy” – but first ML asks him about the conspiracy Michigan Wolverines are always talking about: How the refs are out to get them!

Listen and learn about the role Julian Assange played in fanning the flames of a conspiracy stemming from the death of a minor Democratic Party official.

Conspiracies have been around forever, but Andy explains why they seem to be more popular than ever – and how by the time you realize you should ignore all the noise, it’s too late.

While the right wing seems to be pushing the most conspiracy theories, ML asks Andy to discuss the biggest scandal being pushed by the left.
