We're joined by Shannon of Fluently Forward to go deep into the world of conspiracy theories, from the ones that run rampant today to where they originated from.  The episode focuses on the Satanic Movement that gained popularity in the 1980s, a moral panic that caused thousands of investigations into elementary school teachers with no evidence of wrongdoing. We trace it to today, where these same types of theories are spread by groups from QAnon to spiritual teachers and cult leaders like Teal Swan alike. And for good measure, we talk about the celeb that is promoting beliefs espoused by the Satanic Panic movement, Kat Von D.   Patreon An extra episode out every Wednesday. patreon.com/itsbecomeawholething  10% of monthly proceeds go to prison reform & rehabilitation organization Homeboy Industries   Follow Shannon of Fluently Forward: @fluentlyforward on TikTok @fluentlyforward on Instagram Fluently Forward Podcast   Follow Emily Rose: @itsbecomeawholething on Instagram @itsbecomeawholething on Tiktok
