Show Notes

Today Randon has on hosts of the podcast Psychology after Dark, Dr. Jessica Micono, and Dr. David Morelos.

Dr. Micono is a clinical psychologist with expertise in forensic psychology, and evaluating, diagnosing, and treating criminal pathology. She has an M.A. in Forensic Psychology and a Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from the Graduate School of Professional Psychology at the University of Denver. Dr. Morelos has spent the last 18 years working with criminal populations in both law-enforcement and substance abuse treatment roles. His expertise is in prisonization and men’s psychology. He holds a Ph.D. in Psychology (transpersonal concentration) from Sofia University in Palo Alto, CA.   

These two psychologists and I discuss America's intimate relationship with conspiratorial thinking. We discuss how conspiracy theories arise, the socio-political and existential factors involved in believing in them, "real" theories like MK Ultra and Cointelpro, as well as how generational differences play a role.
