This week our guest was the effortlessly charasmatic Jon Ronson. His latest book So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed is an investigation into the nature of mass humiliation in the age of the Internet. Oof.
This hot topic incites passionate opinions and I think you’ll hear us wrestling with them, and each other, here. It was one of those special conversations that runs away with itself, that goes to unexpected places – and one that you never want to end.
Because we chatted for so long we have left off our usual “what we’ve been up to this week” update so you can enjoy the full interview. We look forward to your comments. Bring them on.
