WBFO Brief July 14, 2021

Today’s WBFO Brief hears from Prof. Phil Stevens, a University at Buffalo anthropologist that says there are ways to combat the growth of conspiracy theories in American politics and culture. Also, a look at a summer camp in Lake Placid, NY, teaching computer coding to middle school girls. We also check in on the return of Larkinville’s Food Truck Tuesday, have more on the sexual abuse allegations against former Buffalo Diocese Auxiliary Bishop Edward Grosz, and look at a Siena Poll that says over half of New Yorkers are concerned about a COVID resurgence in the fall.
