    Marianna in Conspiracyland - Is there anyone who works harder than Marianna Spring? The BBC’s Disinformation and Social Media Correspondent is the co-host of Americast and made documentaries for Panorama. As well as that, she’s made several compelling BBC Sounds series exploring the damage caused by disinformation and conspiracy theories, the latest of which was released just this week.

    In this new series, Spring investigates The Light, a conspiracy theory newspaper, and how it has been a factor in the radicalisation that it has caused.
