Jon’s latest podcast The Debutante was released in April 2023. His previous BBC Sounds podcast Things Fell Apart was name by The Observer as the number one audio show of 2021. Before that came two other Audible Original audio series, The Butterfly Effect (2017) and The Last Days of August (2019). Both went straight to number one in the US and UK audiobook charts, and were named by multiple critics as two of the best podcasts of recent years.
