Things Fell Apart

BBC Radio 4
Society & CulturePersonal Journals

If you've ever yelled at someone on social media about, say, cancel culture or mask-wearing, then you are a soldier in the culture wars - those everyday battles for dominance between conflicting values. The acclaimed writer and podcaster Jon Ronson has seen friends swallowed up in them to the extent that it's ruined their lives. Jon was curious to learn how things fell apart, and so he went back into the history of the culture wars to find some of the origin stories: the pebbles thrown in the pond, creating the ripples that led us to where we are today. He had no idea what he'd find, but he's uncovered some extraordinary people and the strangest, yet most consequential tales.

  • Fascinating output as always

    …but essential listening too. So essential in fact that I’ve found myself posting links to episodes quite often. This podcast tells aspects of culture wars often little known by those affected. And, I know this isn’t as important, but I adore the music! A rare combination of the vital and enjoyable - thank you Jon.

  • Same old BBC

    When will these professional lefties learn they are no better than the right. They are both two sides of the same filth covered coin and in the middle the balanced sensible people exist scratching our heads.

  • Excellent podcast for curious people

    You will hate it if what you want to hear is someone spew out your beliefs without question. So, if you are a person who as soon as someone touches one of your beliefs that person is automatically wrong, don’t bother. You will end up mad a probably belittling the bravery and the hard work of those interviewed in the podcast so that you can continue believing that you own the only truths out there. more
