For $2 or more a month you gain access to whatever backer-only videos I produce, such as outtakes, cut content, and the like. You also gain access to a PDF of the script I use in the video (when said videos are scripted). Backer-only content typically appears within a few days of the main video being uploaded to YouTube.

Not only do you get the benefits of the first tier, you get mentioned in the credits of the videos I produce!
Pledge $10 (or more) per month

Not just the two earlier tiers of goodness, but an actual mention in the video itself in some form. Maybe I will get you to send me a picture of you to appear in the background, or maybe you will get name-checked as a member of the Illuminati. For $10 a month almost anything is possible!

About Conspiracism

What is Conspiracism?

"Conspiracism" is a new series of videos on conspiracy theory theory, the theory of conspiracy theory. It is presented by Dr. M R. X. Dentith, a philosopher who specialises in the Philosophy of Conspiracy Theory. "Conspiracism" will be both a deep dive into how academics write and treat talk of conspiracy theory, as well as a look at particular conspiracy theories and conspiracy theorists.

How often is Conspiracism?

Ideally I want to be producing two videos a month, but that all depends on my other academic commitments. I'm working on a new book proposal, writing chapters, finishing off research papers and the like. Still, you can expect at least one video per month, if not more.

Who is Conspiracism?

Well, Dr. M R. X. Dentith. But you can call me M or Conspiracism. I'm easy. I'm a Aotearoa New Zealand born philosopher with a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Auckland. I wrote my PhD dissertation, "In defence of conspiracy theories," which was eventually turned into the book "The Philosophy of Conspiracy Theories" (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014). I've authored a lot of papers on conspiracy theory, contributed book chapters, and given keynotes. I may not be the leading light in the field, but I am one of them. Also, I'm a "they/them."

Why is Conspiracism?

Well, two reason. The first is that I've been asked time and time again by colleagues and friends to do something like this. The second is that I've consulted three times now with production houses in LA on proposed conspiracy theory-related TV shows (mostly of the documentary sort), none of which have ever made it on to TV. So, rather than wait for call number four from Hollywood, I thought I'd start this series myself.

New equipment

For $100 a month I can contemplate getting new equipment (particularly a better camera and mic setup), as well as investing in higher quality software.
