Sweet Bobby: could any of us be catfished?

Sweet Bobby: could any of us be catfished?

This is a newsroom ThinkIn. In-person and digital-only tickets are available.

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

This is a digital-only ThinkIn.

Over the course of six jaw-dropping episodes, the Sweet Bobby podcast tells the story of Kirat Assi and one of the most extraordinary examples of catfishing you’re ever likely to hear. When the investigation began, Tortoise’s Alexi Mostrous could never have predicted the twists, turns, deceptions and reveals in Kirat’s story. 

We don’t want to share any spoilers now, but join us for this very special ThinkIn where we’ll get into the stories behind the story of Sweet Bobby, meet some of the characters involved, and explore what this sensational story says about trust, relationships, and our online lives.
