Danny Wallace: Lies, Trolls and Conspiracy Theories

23 May @ 7:30 pm 8:30 pm

Danny Wallace

Bestselling author Danny Wallace takes the Bath Festival on a journey down the rabbit hole of lies, trolls and conspiracies – shedding light on this shadowy topic with his trademark humour and insatiable curiosity.

On the way Danny encounters families torn apart by accusations and fake news, journalists putting themselves on the frontline of the disinformation war, reformed conspiracy theorist, influencers who see profit in stoking paranoia, and the shadowy nameless, faceless trolls on the other side of our screens. He discovered how disinformation and well-told lies can ruin a year or a whole life, and how they can affect our family, our street, and our community. How they can spread across a country, a continent, or even the world. How they take hold of our imaginations and make us feel both helpless and powerful. And whether there’s anything you can do to stop it, even with the truth on your side.
