Meeting Jon Ronson
I had the great pleasure of meeting journalist, filmmaker, and author Jon Ronson yesterday. Jon was in Dublin promoting his superb new book; So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed which is an exploration of the renaissance in public shaming taking place via mediums like twitter. Just think of Justine Sacco and probably the world’s most infamous tweet.
As is the way with promotional tours we were on a tight schedule but I managed to pack as much into our 30 minute conversation as possible. Jon is as curious, humorous, and warm in person as he is in his writing and I’m sure you’ll all enjoy the episode when it releases next Tuesday.
The winners of the 2 books are Margarite (no second name) and Albert Handler. Margarite wins the copy of the Kurt Cobain Journals and Albert wins the copy of Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead by my last guest, Frank Meeink. Congratulations to both of you, I’ll mail you over the next couple of days to arrange posting and don’t forget to check your Spam folders just in case.
