The Dentith Files – Thesis Endgame & Getting pissy about conspiracies

Between 2008 and 2010, Matthew Dentith first joined 95bFM’s Simon Pound, then José Barbosa, on Sunday mornings to talk about conspiracy theories. Listen, as they say, again!

Today we spoke about my thesis endgame and the whole issue of how you infer that people are conspiring (as well as a little talk about the folk psychology everyone seems to be using in re the Tony Veitch aftermath).

And a fair amount of TV talk…

We also had some inadvertant fun after the session when it turn out that certain mics that were meant to be off were in fact still on. Thanks to the texting efforts of Mr. Ewan Cowie we were saved from true scandal.

Thanks Ewan!

Thewan!
