EPISODE 43 | Conspiracy U with Scott Shay
The academic world is supposed to be a place to open and expand minds, but some professors actively promote conspiracy theories about Israel and the Jewish people that do the exact opposite. Scott Shay has written a book about how this is happening on both the right and left sides of the political spectrum, especially at his alma mater, Northwestern University.
