Host Benjamen Walker is joined by the journalists Jonathan Kay and Petra Bartosiewicz and they take listener calls. Jonathan Kay is the author of “Among the Truthers” a book about America’s growing conspiracy theory movement and the people who believe in them. Petra Bartosiewicz has been writing about the FBI’s hunt for terrorist networks and sleeper cells. Her soon-to-be-published book is called “The Best Terrorists We Could Find,” an investigation of terrorism trials in the U.S. since 9/11.
