Josiah Hesse - Public Speaker


Public Speaking

Following more than a decade of journalism with prestigious outlets like The Guardian, Vice and Esquire—reporting on topics as varied as politics, crime and science, to the arts, drugs and religion—Josiah Hesse has translated his expertise from the page to the presentation with his vibrant and often humorous multimedia lectures.

His gonzo reporting on the intersection of cannabis and athletics in the book Runners High (Putnam 2021) has been adapted into an engaging and vivid presentation, available for booking at universities, conventions or private events. His reporting on, and personal experience with, the history and modern machinations of Christian right in America is both at once sardonic and hilarious.
