Jon Ronson:

Tales from The Last Days of August & The Butterfly Effect

‘Eye-opening and oddly uplifting’ The Financial Times

Welsh journalist, writer and documentary maker Jon Ronson explores the curious world of porn in this new show based on his hit podcasts The Butterfly Effect and The Last Days of August.

With new stories, never-heard-before audio and some very strange (PG-rated) porn clips, Jon will reveal the mysterious, funny and sometimes sad results of his quest to discover why people are uncomfortable with porn stars when they see them in real life.

'a warm portrait of a harshly judged industry' The Financial Times (on The Butterfly Effect)
'a sparing, delicate and at times harrowing series' The Guardian (on The Last Days of August)
