Conspiracy Corner – Len Brown Stand Down

Every Thursday, about 8:15am, Matthew “phones” in his thoughts about some contemporary conspiracy theory to Zac on 95bFM’s “Breakfast Show”.

Readers of the the long-winded posts upon this blog will be aware that on the weekend of the 22nd of February, 2014, I observed (but did not attend) the “Len Brown Stand Down” march, which you can read about here. Given the protest speakers included Vinny “Mr. News” Eastwood, Will “Chemtrail Enthusiast and 9/11 Truther” Ryan and Penny Bright1, I thought it might be good to collate my thoughts on the radio.

Which I did.

In other news, I have a course on Conspiracy Theories starting up at the beginning of April. If you are in Auckland and want to hear my dulcet tones for two hours a week, why not think of enrolling?


  1. I tried to think of a nickname but Bright has added her voice to so many disparate causes it would have been a disservice to everyone to name just a few.
