Julian Walker has researched, written, and podcasted about cults and gurus, spiritual bypass and quantum woo in New Age circles extensively. He is also a cohost of the (amazing) Conspirituality Podcast.
Today's episode is really important, and we
certain groups (like BJJ, MMA and Yoga circles) are more into
conspiracy theories (starting roughly at 4:46), the tendency for
some people to make connections and see patterns where none
exist (17:59), end of the world prophecies in conspiracy theories
(48:08), and more.
