Ring True #1: The Origin Story

Ring True explores the role of politics, psychology, and tech giants in the spread of misinformation in science. The six-part miniseries will also examine how research, policymaking, and journalism help or hurt the spread of misinformation. In this first episode, we’ll start at the very beginning – the history of conspiracy theories.
