The Last Days of Au­gust Pod­cast

The Guardian - The Guide - - Sound & Vision - HV

Jon Ron­son’s pod­cast about the mod­ern history of the porn in­dus­try, The But­ter­fly Ef­fect, was an il­lu­mi­nat­ing and sen­si­tively han­dled hit. Now Ron­son looks into the story of Au­gust Ames, the adult film star who killed her­self after be­ing shamed on Twit­ter for a sup­pos­edly ho­mo­pho­bic com­ment. At first it sounds like per­fect fod­der for a true-crime pod­cast, but it turns out to be noth­ing of the sort as Ron­son pieces to­gether the rea­sons why she died, giv­ing a true idea of the woman she was.
