Give 'em rope enough to hang themselves
19 February 2019 | by splumerSee all my reviews

Though at first I questioned the wisdom of letting flat earthers talk about their ideas on camera, it worked out in the end. Bob Knodel, Mark Sargent and Jeran Campanella all reveal, in their own ways, that the FE movement's stars might not be all they're cracked up to be.

I do agree with some other reviewers that it does indeed drag in a few places, but overall if you're concerned about the anti-science movement in the US, this is worth a watch.
