Andrew Marantz

New Yorker staff writer and a TED 2019 speaker Andrew Marantz gained unprecedented access to the two key groups behind our current informational crisis in order to write Antisocial. The first is the world of social-media entrepreneurs—"the new gatekeepers"—who, acting out of naïvete and reckless ambition, upended all traditional means of receiving and transmitting information. How do they view the current reality they’ve helped shape? And what, if anything, are they doing about it? The second group consists of the strangest and scariest denizens of the online fringes—"the gate crashers." What are their motivations? And what can be done to stop them? Marantz always keeps his eyes on the bigger questions: what is this doing to public life, and how can we do better as a society? Andrew Marantz has worked at The New Yorker since 2011, first as an editor and then as a writer. He has covered a wide array of subjects, from diversity in comedy to the Truman Show delusion. Ultimately, his main interest lies not in any particular subject but in how people form beliefs, and under what circumstances those beliefs can change for the better. Marantz is also a contributor to Radiolaband The New Yorker Radio Hour, and he has written for Harper's, Mother Jones, the New York Times, and has been interviewed on CNN, MSNBC, and NPR. He holds an undergraduate degree in religion from Brown University and a master’s degree in literary nonfiction from New York University.
