Remember when we used to listen to podcasts?
ReplyAll has always been fun and interesting, and they delve into a wide variety of topics. They also do in-depth looks at technology, and do so in a way that is rigorous, but also understandable to the non-technologists in the audience.
This episode is about the origins of QAnon, who created it, who ran the account, and who is running it today. And why they continue to do so.
It's not hard, really. Anyone with any knowledge of Reddit or Discord is going to understand exactly how this happened, and when it went off the rails and was co-opted by people who were just trolls in it for the lulz.
QAnon is going to be with us and affecting our politics for the coming decades, just like the Tea Party did a decade ago. It's important to know thine enemy, and these people are definitely the enemy and our most clear and present danger. Knowing why and how they are being manipulated by people overseas is a key part of being prepared for what comes next.
