maybe that's harsh. It's a school of stealth interviewing. Give them enough rope. Jon Ronson. Theroux. Sasha Baron Cohen....

I think he's matured over the years. He used to have that condescending persona, which felt exploitative sometimes. His more recent docs about prisons and poverty are much better.

I've got an instinctive aversion to him and Ronson. I like Ali G though.

Ronson's voice gets on my nerves but the podcasts about porn he did recently were excellent

That's a sort of tactical advantage they have, though. It disarms people, makes them lower their defences. They figure this guy's an emasculated gawky limey nerd and I don't have to watch what I say here.

There's an American version now that's even more disgusting. Makes my skin itch. Have to go and shower.

That sounds a lot less fun than BDSM subcultures tho
