Peter Thiel orchestrated a nearly decade long conspiracy that culminated in the bankruptcy and closure of Gawker. It was a process that involved Hulk Hogan, the FBI, the First and Fourth Amendments and eventually, the next President of the United States. Author Ryan Holiday’s forthcoming book Conspiracy examines the case that rocked the media world. Join Holiday as he interviews Peter Thiel to discuss the takedown of Gawker while answering why he set it all in motion, how he did it and most importantly, what does it mean for privacy? For culture? For the future of the free press? In this lively discussion, Holiday and Thiel will discuss power, strategy, and one of the most devious secret plots in recent memory.
