Conspiracyland Podcast Season 2 is a three part series, hosted by Yahoo News' Chief Investigative Correspondent MIchael Isikoff, that investigates the 2001 death of Lori Klausutis, an aide to then Congressman Joe Scarborough, and how it spawned nearly two decades of conspiracy theories that this year were aggressively promoted by President Trump and the QAnon conspiracy cult. The series includes exclusive interviews with the chief of detectives at the Fort Walton Beach, Florida police department, the medical examiner who conducted the autopsy, and Lori's husband, T.J. Klausutis, who describes how the conspiracy theories have caused "inhuman" pain and anguish for him and the rest of her family, resulting in his powerful letter this spring pleading with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to delete the president's false tweets about his wife.
