Freemasonry and Conspiracy Theories

Bro. Wes Regan joins me to talk a little about our involvement in organizing Grand Masonic Day 2024, which is scheduled for May 25. Br. Chris Hodapp has been formally announced as keynote speaker this year. Wes will also be speaking, presenting some of his research about attacks on Freemasonic buildings.

We talk a little about his interest in why conspiracy theories are so influential in modern society and how we both came to The Craft from this common interest.
