In the fifty-sixth episode we explore the Accelerating Truth Fallacy, starting with Trump claiming Robert Mueller really wanted to be his FBI Director.

In Mark's British Politics Corner we look at the media's approach to a recent invasion of the UK by a few people in a rubber dinghy.

In the Fallacy in the Wild, we check out examples from a BBC documentary about Lewis Carroll, Twitter, and an episode of the podcast Be Reasonable..

Jim and Mark go head to head in Fake News, the game in which Mark has to guess which of three Trump quotes Jim made up.

Then we break down Jim's personal connection to the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, through the Disney movie Lilo and Stitch!

And finally, we round up some of the other crazy Trump stories from the past week.
