Mike Fallek is a documentarian and podcaster. His documentaries mix entertainment, animation, and gonzo-style journalism to not only find new stories in the world but to talk about them in the least boring way possible.
Mike is also the inventor of the word Hashtag Cult- a group that uses the internet's layout to hide in plain sight while indoctrinating members. Mike's goal is to investigate Mgtow and other groups making use of internet forums and comments sections to indoctrinate and groom vulnerable people
Mike and Rachel open up their figurative "mailbags" and discuss their respective listeners' most irrational reactions and offensive comments. They break down how to read between the lines of such reactionary commentary and what it says about the commenters themselves. Mike provides his insights into the vulnerability of open-minded people in artistic communities.
Before You Go: Rachel further examines how people who consider themselves unconventional thinkers can often make themselves vulnerable to manipulation or coercion within artistic communities.
