Never not excellent

As per all Ronson's content, this is consistently amazing. The only bad thing is that I feel saddness when I’ve listen to the last episode.

Insightful, informative & entertaining

I could listen to Jon Ronson read just about anything to be honest! This series is presented in his own inimitable style, always engaging, honest and delightfully entertaining. Astroturfing is my new favourite phrase!

Very interesting and eye opening

I enjoy Jon ronsons books and radio programs very much and i am pleased to say that this is not an exception! It shows a great insight on how people try to control the internet and was surprised that the Internet is not as free as I thought it is! So I recommend that you watch this podcast immediately
