8chan and the mass shootings

Online extremism expert Melissa Ryan joins us again to talk about this weekend’s mass shootings, how (and why) many of the shooters have been using extremist Web sites like 8chan to feed their racist paranoid worldview, how white supremacists are intentionally infiltrating the Republican party at the local level, and what can be done about it.

Below is our entire interview with Melissa. To hear more of our shows, and help keep the UnPresidented Podcast ad-free, please become a supporter over at Patreon.
