KITE Digital ThinkIn: Jon Ronson


We are launching a series of KITE Digital ThinkIns in partnership with Tortoise. Throughout the series we will be joined by a number of speakers from our 2020 Ideas line up. ThinkIns are unscripted conversations between Tortoise journalists, invited speakers and members of the public, where everyone is invited to have a say.

Our first ThinkIn will be hosted on the 20th April 2020 and features acclaimed author, screenwriter and film maker Jon Ronson. Jon Ronson will join Matt D’Ancona to explore whether our personality types determine how we respond to Covid-19. Jon will seek to understand whether introverts are better suited to coping with isolation or whether extroverts will simply adapt and find new ways to socialise.

Jon Ronson’s bestselling non-fiction books include So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed, The Psychopath Test, Them: Adventures with Extremists, Lost at Sea and The Men Who Stare at Goats, which was adapted into a film starring George Clooney. Jon’s original screenplays include Okja, the critically acclaimed Netflix original and Frank, which won the 2014 Best Screenplay Award at the British Independent Film Awards.
