Listen to the podcast & you'll understand the deep resentment & anger towards Conservative leaders & their media. These people have DESTROYED families including my own. They've gotten people killed including my uncle. We have to stop these lunatics from radicalizing our friends & family members.

Ashley Babbitt was the only death that day, this should of been her story. Instead they focus on a boogie man.

This series ends up going nowhere. A complete waste of time.

Description

Rosanne Boyland hated politics. She was shy, and she rarely left her home in Georgia. But then her family got a shocking call: Rosanne had died at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, in the middle of a crowd trying to force its way past a police line. From the depths of their grief, the Boylands vow to figure out what happened to Rosanne. Her brother-in-law, Justin Cave, reaches out to an old high school friend he hopes can help: MSNBC journalist Ayman Mohyeldin. The quest for the truth takes Ayman back to his hometown of Kennesaw, Georgia, where he retraces the last six months of Rosanne's life and picks up a trail that leads to childhood haunts, missing boyfriends, and down shadowy internet rabbit holes. American Radical is a five part series, with new episodes every Thursday and Sunday through December 19.

Rosanne had always loved conspiracy theories, but her sister Lonna says there was one single night where she changed from hobbyist to hard-core QAnon believer. Ayman follows the trail of YouTube videos that led her down her final rabbit hole—and learns why so many others bought into the same myth.

The Boylands’ questions about Rosanne’s radicalization begin to swirl around one man: the friend Rosanne went to the Capitol with, Justin Winchell. He’s a guy the family never met—and now, he’s vanished. Acting on a tip, Justin Cave sets out to track him down in downtown Atlanta, and Ayman visits with the last journalist to interview Winchell before he disappeared.
