We interview Christian Picciolini — now a peace activist after exiting the neo-nazi movement 20 years ago. Michael Bueckert also hops on the wire to update us on redpilling and QAnon in Canada. But before all that, Travis uses "centipede nation's guide to redpilling" to attempt the conversion of Julian and Jake. For a second episode every week, subscribe to patreon.com/qanonanonymous for just 5 bucks a month. Thank you for supporting us!
