The Dentith Files – Vril and Sexism (It’s not okay)

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!

So, this week we discussed the Vril-ya, Vril and touched briefly on the Vril Society. It was, as they say, a fun time had by all, and Jarred’s sexism was, although not obviously so, jocular as opposed to serious.

This is actually the first of two bFM appearances this week; I’ll be on ‘Ready, Steady, Learn’ tomorrow morning at about 8:40, talking about my research with Manu Taylor.

Tune in to tune out, or whatever the kids say. I’m off to do some work.

Or make lunch. It’s a topsy-turvey world.

[Update: It was lunch.]

The Dentith Files – Kerry Thornley

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!

‘The Cryptid Factor’ team and I discussed Kerry Wendel Thornley, aka Lord Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst, co-founder of Discordianism, and author of the book ‘Oswald,’ which promoted the ‘Lone Gunman Hypothesis’ in regards to Lee Harvey Oswald and the assassination of one John Fitzgerald Kennedy, president of the United States of America.

Now, I’m going to recommend you all listen to the full show, which can be found here and here, but I know some of you might be thinking ‘I don’t want to listen to all that cryptozoological claptrap. Just give me a link to damn segment, hippy!’

Now, I think it’s very unfair to Rhys and David to say that their show is claptrap. I mean, really, how can you be so judgmental, especially when I don’t think you’ve even bothered to listen to a single episode.

Secondly (and I know I didn’t say ‘Firstly’), I’m not a hippy. Socialist, yes. Communist; almost certainly, but hippy? No. A thousand times no.

Still, perhaps you’re a busy go-getter without an iPod (or equivalent) which allows you to listen to stuff on the go. So, for you business-types, with your gray suits and neckties, here’s the segment on its own:

You might also like to join ‘The Cryptid Files’ fanpage. You could put in a good word for me.

In fact, you better…

Threats don’t translate well over the internet, do they?

The Dentith Files – South African Rugby Tour Conspiracy

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!

‘The Dentith Files’ is back on the air; this week we talked about a sports conspiracy centring around Rugby, Nelson Mandela and Clint Eastwood.

We also didn’t really talk about the Gardasil controversy. We meant to, but time, precious time; it was against us.

The Dentith Files – Richard Gage III

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!

Well, the podcast of “The Dentith Files” segment on Richard Gage can be listened to below:

Given that we had a mere twenty minutes (and we went over) this is not as fulsome a discussion on Gage as I’d like, but it covers what José and I felt were the interesting issues we could meaningfully get into given the ,imitation of our time slot.

Also, apparently some calls came in; I had to dash off to catch a ferry.

Anyway, that really is probably the last thing I’ll writing/saying about Gage and his particular version of the ‘Inside Job’ hypothesis for a while; I’m off on Monday for fives days at a conference and when I get back it’ll be time to start work on the final chapter proper of the thesis. December and January will be long months.

I’d just like to advise poiential commenters on this and the other 9/11 posts that:

a) I won’t have much internet access over the next week, so don’t expect prompt or long replies, and

b) the comments policy here is that I have to approve the first comment you make in any given post, so don’t think I’m censoring you or unable to respond to your comments (or anything similar) if it takes a while for your comment to appear publicly.
