So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed with Author John Ronson

Lisa Loving speaks with Welsh journalist, author, documentary filmmaker, and radio presenter, Jon Ronson, whose works include the best-selling The Men Who Stare at Goats. He has been described as a gonzo journalist. They discuss his latest book So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed (Riverhead). For the book Ronson immersed himself in the world of modern-day public shaming – meeting famous shamees, shamers, and bystanders who have been impacted. Whole careers are being ruined by one mistake. A transgression is revealed and our collective outrage at it has the force of a hurricane. Then we all quickly forget about it and move on to the next one, and it doesn't cross our minds to wonder if the shamed person is okay or in ruins. What's it doing to them?
