When Timothy McVeigh blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, he was inspired to act by a novel written by a well-known white supremacist. Twenty-five years later, many who stormed the U.S. Capitol felt compelled to act by the QAnon conspiracy fiction. Join award winning novelist, Alan Drew, to discuss his most recent novel, The Recruit, and the historical fictions that have motivated white nationalist terrorism.
