This week on The Gralien Report Podcast, we examine the various interpretations of conspiracy theories in America, and the influence that conspiracist thought has on issues like mental illness, and “scapegoating” in Western culture.

On the subject of scapegoats, we carry our discussion of conspiracy over to the unusual happenings and Fortean phenomenon as seen from a sociological perspective. We also explore the concept of “folk devils”, and how various circumstances in the history of the unexplained relate to the idea. Are the “Fortean Folk Devils a plausible cultural phenomenon? All this, and more, are discussed this week on The Gralien Report Podcast.
