WGBH and WORLD Channel presented a two-episode screening of "Pulling the Thread," along with a live panel discussion and Q&A with the filmmakers. Award-winning television and radio host Tina Martin moderated this discussion with filmmakers Kristin Pichaske and Danny Alpert. Dr. Joseph Uscinski, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Miami, joined the panel.

"Pulling the Thread" is a digital documentary series that unravels some of America’s most popular conspiracy theories and reveals the emotional, cognitive and social forces that lead rational people to believe irrational things. The project doesn’t tell people what to think, but pushes us to examine how we think — why conspiracy theories are so alluring, how baseless rumors and “fake news” undermine trust and democracy — and what we can all do about it.
