Jon Sopel on Fear and Loathing on the US Campaign Trail (online)

Politics &
Economics

Jon Sopel is one of the BBC’s best known journalists. For the last four years, as its North America Editor, he has stood outside the White House, relaying the ups and downs of Donald Trump’s presidency with his signature wry style. He comes to Intelligence Squared to take us behind the scenes of perhaps the most extraordinary election campaign ever in American politics – when a global pandemic threw the country into turmoil and threatened not just the presidency but the very institutions of American democracy itself. Join us as Sopel reveals the inside story of how the presidential race became a battle for the very soul of the nation – and what lies ahead with the incoming administration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
