Tales From The Rabbit Hole


Episode 32 – The Skeptic of the North: Former Conspiracist, Current Skeptic

December 29, 2019

Phil is a former conspiracy theorist in Northern Ireland who got into conspiracy theories aged 18, around 14 years ago. Going to university exposed him to a variety of people and to new ways of thinking, which over the course of a year gradually pulled him out of the rabbit hole.
Now Phil has started a YouTube channel as “The Skeptic of the North” to share some of his thoughts on the topic, and specifically on the conversational method of discussion Epistemology — how people know what they think they know. We discuss this subject and our mutual experiences talking to conspiracy theorists.
