The Dentith Files – Swine Flu

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!

A Very Special Dentith Files on the ‘Swine Flu’.

Also, Atlanta was the airport I was looking for.

About Matthew Dentith

Author of "The Philosophy of Conspiracy Theories" (Palgrave Macmillan), Matthew Dentith wrote his PhD on epistemic issues surrounding belief in conspiracy theories. He is a frequent media commentator on the weird and the wonderful, both locally and internationally. On occasion he can be caught dreaming about wax lions but, mostly, it is rumoured he works for elements of the New World Order.


  1. Rather interestingly, the right-wing ‘academic think-tanks’ haven’t been saying anything about swine flu or any swine flu ‘conspiracy’, even though they’ve been making a lot of noise all over the world about the global warming ‘conspiracy’.

  2. Conspiracy Theory begins: Most of the members of those think tanks will likely be dead and buried by the time the climate catastrophe threatens their class; swine flu could do that tomorrow. I suspect they’re probably being a bit more circumspect in their criticism because of that. Conspiracy Theory ends.

  3. I don’t know… if they wanted to, they could’ve done what the Heartland Institute has done with the economic crisis: propose some policy measures which obviously won’t be followed, and if anything goes wrong they can blame The Government and make a lot of noise over it.

    But they can’t even be bothered to do that… hmm…
