This webchat has been rescheduled. Jon will now be answering your questions on Wednesday 15 November at 2pm. See you then!
If you need a conspiracy theory investigated, a charismatic cult leader profiled or a shadowy cabal of experimental pseudo-scientists infiltrated, Jon Ronson is your man. The mild-mannered journalist and broadcaster has been charming and disarming his way into secretive circles since the early 90s, authoring numerous books, magazine articles and radio shows on people and phenomena that might otherwise fly under the radar.
His adventures have taken him all over the world, from North Pole, Alaska (where he investigated a foiled school shooting plot) to UFO-spotting in the Nevada Desert with Robbie Williams. His most famous book is 2004’s The Men Who Stare at Goats, about a secret US army battalion who tried to put “new age” ideas into practice and become rainbow-powered supersoldiers who could kill animals by looking at them. It was subsequently made into a film starring George Clooney and Ewan McGregor as the Ronson-esque protagonist.
