Summer 2018. Two years into President Donald J. Trump´s first term in office, America has never been greater. The Even Greater Wall along the Mexican border is under construction, paid for by Mexico. Americans have more money in their pockets thanks to lower taxes and the president´s creative money-raising strategies. Who else would have thought to pay for FEMA´s budget by suing the Catholic Church over property damage caused by acts of God? And while Trump´s detractors may call him a tyrant, the American people love bullies when the victim is Congress: Every time they impeach the president, his approval rating skyrockets. Ever conscious of his hugely important historical legacy, The Donald plucks disgraced tabloid reporter Jimmie Bernwood - the man responsible for publishing the infamous Ted Cruz sex tape - from the depths of anonymity to become his official biographer, giving him enviable access to the gold-plated White House and all of its secrets. When Trump´s previous biographer turns up dead, Bernwood must do some real investigative reporting, get to the bottom of a long series of murders - and, if it´s absolutely unavoidable, save the country. 1.

In 2016, one of the giants of modern journalism fell: Gawker Media, infamous for saying what other outlets wouldn´t say, was sued for publishing Hulk Hogan´s sex tape, lost the case and went bust. After countless other lawsuits it seemed that Gawker had finally run out of luck. But luck had nothing to do with it. Peter Thiel, PayPal founder and billionaire investor, had masterminded the whole thing. Still furious at an article that had outed him 10 years previously, and increasingly disgusted at Gawker´s unscrupulous reporting methods, Thiel had spent nearly a decade meticulously plotting a conspiracy that would lead to the demise of Gawker and its founder, Nick Denton. After a multiyear proxy war through the Florida legal system, the settlement of $140 million in favour of Hogan ended it. The verdict would stun the world, and so would Peter´s ultimate unmasking as the man who had set it all in motion. Why had he done this? How had no one discovered it? What would this mean - for free speech? For privacy? For culture? In Holiday´s masterful telling of this nearly unbelievable conspiracy, informed by exclusive interviews with all the key players, this case transcends the narrative of how one billionaire took down a media empire or the current state of the free press. It´s a study in power, strategy, and one of the most wildly ambitious - and successful - secret plots in recent memory. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ryan Holiday.
