You're Wrong About

You're Wrong About, the hilarious and edifying "podcast about misremembered history," revisits pop culture stories, public figures, and historical events that have been widely misrepresented or misunderstood. Hosted by journalists Michael Hobbes and Sarah Marshall, each one-hour episode thoroughly debunks everything that you thought you knew about pop history, tackling subjects as diverse as the 1980s satanic panic, acid rain, and whether Yoko Ono broke up the Beatles. While setting the facts straight, the hosts also try to explain how and why human beings are susceptible to misinformation, with particular focus on pop psychology, media criticism, moral panics, and the criminal justice system. Listeners looking to jump in could start with topics such as "Kitty Genovese and Bystander Apathy" (June 20, 2019), "Anna Nicole Smith" (Feb. 20, 2019), "Killer Clowns" (Sept. 21, 2020), or "Koko the Gorilla" (July 6, 2020). You're Wrong About can be found on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and most other podcast platforms. Listeners can also access episodes on their web browser by clicking "Episodes" on the page linked above, then "here." Readers may want to follow the podcast on Twitter (@yourewrongabout) for updates and announcements.
