Recently, I was interviewed by Courtney Simmonds for the inaugural episode of the Q-Dropped Podcast. The Q-Dropped Podcast focuses on:
telling the stories of families that have been torn apart by the Qanon cult and Qanon-adjacent ideas. Most of us know someone who has been affected by the deeply concerning beliefs of Qanon adherents. Many of us have had rifts form between us and people we care about. Unfortunately, however, not many of us are talking about the toll Qanon is having on average, everyday families in countries all over the world. This podcast aims to raise awareness about this issue by telling the stories of people who have lost someone they care about to Qanon.
Give it a listen and let me know what you think.

This was my first time listening to you on a podcast. You made some very good points about treading lightly with loved ones immersed in Qanon conspiracy theories. I DO have a question, though: Do people seriously believe the thing about reptilians, portals and other dimensions?? I know a few people who believe in the essential oil woo nonsense, but what the f* is a reptilian and why would anyone believe this craziness?? Please tell me this is satire?
Hi Bruce! Thank you so much for sitting down with us. I wish it had been under better circumstances but I was happy to speak with you!
Excellent interview. I always like hearing your thoughts.
