April 11, 2022 – On Monday, April 18, NBC News’ award-winning podcast unit will launch Tiffany Dover Is Dead*, a new original series investigating how a dangerous pandemic conspiracy theory hijacked one woman’s life. 

Hosted by NBC News senior reporter Brandy Zadrozny, the five-episode series will reveal how anti-vaccine activists and conspiracy-minded online sleuths teamed up to push a wild and false theory that a Tennessee nurse named Tiffany Dover, who fainted on camera shortly after getting the Covid-19 vaccine, had died. Throughout the podcast, Zadrozny, an award-winning journalist and an expert on the misinformation beat, will take listeners inside her journey to find Dover and disprove the unfounded rumors. The series will also spotlight how conspiracy theories start and end.
