Inhaltsangabe

In December 2017 the famous porn star August Ames committed suicide in a park in the Conejo Valley. It happened a day after she’d been the victim of a Twitter pile-on by fellow porn professionals. A month later, August’s husband Kevin connected with the writer Jon Ronson so they could piece together the story of how Twitter bullying killed his wife. What neither Kevin nor Ronson realised was that Ronson would soon hear rumours and secrets hinting at a very different story - something mysterious and unexpected and terrible.

interesting report on a sad story

Jon Ronson has a really interesting perspective on social topics. This podcast was no exception. Particularly interesting was the implicit analysis of how how pornography industry harbors misogyny.
