The story of how "otakus" in 1980s Japan connect to the far-right conspiracy known as QAnon. How the alt right and the Capitol Riots are traceable to anonymous imageboards started by teenagers to trade anime. How 4chan birthed a group of hacktivists known as Anonymous and law enforcement destroyed it. And how social media companies lined their pockets while the credulous media were taken for a ride by organized trolls.
This episode was co-written by Dale Beran and Julian Feeld.
