Listen Up: Fact-Checking with Misinformation Expert Rex Sorgatz!
Call this the conspiracy-theory ep, if you like: After we revisit the oh-so-mysterious HDVB (Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Bean) shortage, we sit down with Rex Sorgatz, authority on all things hoax-y, misinformed, and just plain false. He literally wrote the book on them—it’s called The Encyclopedia of Misinformation, and it’s as intriguing as it sounds.
P.S. Something that’s definitely true: Our amazing new Permanent Collection by Of a Kind duster is now 10% off with the code AFEWTHINGS.
Special and amazing guest Rex Sorgatz on how and why he wrote a whole book on non-truths…
Get ahold of The Encyclopedia of Misinformation to read up on the Berenstain/Berenstein Bears mystery and the fascinating concept of kayfabe in professional wrestling, plus so much more.
As for things not included in the book, consider these for your next Wiki wormhole: Is Katy Perry actually JonBenét Ramsey? Um, chemtrails? Is Elon Musk denying that his real home is Mars?!
And when you’re done with that, get back to work with Wunderlist, a great to-do app according to a guy who used it to organize his book topics.
