Are We Europe explores what it means to be European through storytelling and cross-border journalism. Thess wrote a feature story for the 12th issue of the magazine about how to talk to people who believe in conspiracy theories.
The piece was later highlighted:
“I particularly enjoyed a piece by the Spanish journalist Thess Mostoles about how to talk to a loved one who’s turned into a conspiracy theorist. And here is a Christmas link because I am sure some of you will be heading home for the holidays to see some family members or friends who might have some views (…) on the border of conspiracy theories (…), and I really recommend that you read this piece before heading into that situation” – Dominic Kraemer, The Europeans Podcast (min 31:35)
