The Summer Series continues with yet another trip down the wombat warren of conspiracy theories and disinformation. Joining me once more is Elise Thomas, freelance journalist and OSINT analyst with the Institute for Strategic Dialogue.

Our focus this time is on the Convoy to Canberra, the current freedom-seeking protests inspired by Canadian truckers’ Freedom Convoy to Ottawa.
