Uncovering The Truth
What is Truth? A term that’s become harder to define in the muddy waters of the 21st century. Uncovering the Truth Podcast interviews leading experts in the fields of criminal psychology, nutrition, social media & history to disseminate fact from fiction. Episodes unpack the brainwashing tactics deployed by cult leaders, to the origins of bizarre conspiracies such as reptilians, to even some misconceptions about the “healthy” foods we put in our bodies everyday. Did our earliest ancestors grapple with this question of truth, too? Or has modern society, and all of its perils, forever blurred the lines?
