I've been listening to a podcast on the limitations of our minds, "You Are Not So Smart".


 The host apparently originally launched it to advertise his book of the same name, but it's continued far beyond that. Some of the better recent episodes include "The Replication Crisis", and "How to Talk To People About Things", but the newest episode, "Behind the Curve" is superficially about flat-earthers but really explores how people fall into a belief in conspiracy theories.

I highly recommend it for anyone who is wondering how political discourse has come to be dominated by conspiracies of all sorts.
