710 - Snopes: "Even Snopes goes on Rumor Flies!"

We have a very special season finale for y’all: an interview with the founder and owner of Snopes, David Mikkelson! David talks to us about the origins and early days of Snopes, their methodology for choosing topics and researching them, and the challenges they face in the current socio-political climate. He also tells us some of his favorite “myths that won’t die” and “unbelievably true” stories. Join us for an investigative episode of Rumor Flies!

**NSFW at ~44:30. Not for the squeamish.**
