Podcast: Polyp on conspiracy theories

In the March 2011 issue of New Internationalist, our regular cartoonist Polyp has a lengthy discussion of conspiracy theories. He shows how far-fetched stories like '9/11 was an inside job' and 'Vaccinations are a Big Pharma plot' are gaining popularity amongst the peace and social justice counterculture, wonders what’s driving this strange witches’ brew of irrationality and paranoia, and reveals disturbing links with far-right holocaust deniers.

Here, he discusses his article - and his cartoons - with Nyan Storey, our podcast editor.
