Nobody’s Lunch

This episode takes a look at how we know what we know in a world governed by lies.


How do we know what to believe when everyone in power seems to be lying? In the early 2000s, inspired by the “truthiness” of the Bush-Cheney Administration, the Civilians launched an investigation called “(I Am) Nobody’s Lunch.” In this recording, Emily Rossell plays a Columbia student who joined a cult, Donnetta Lavinia Grays plays a Jamaican facialist, and Aysan Celik plays a “remote viewer” with a special technique for accessing truth. Closing the episode, Mike Madison plays a Michael Friedman song called “Super Secret Places.”
