Andrew Callaghan, the self-styled gonzo journalist behind the Channel 5 YouTube documentary series, comes to CitySpace with his latest HBO Original about the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol, “This Place Rules.” The 25-year-old viral sensation traveled across America in an RV during the contentious and polarizing 2020 U.S. presidential election amid the COVID-19 pandemic and widespread protests — capturing political division, the world of white nationalist groups and conspiracy theorists.
Here & Now co-host Robin Young will moderate a conversation with Callaghan following the screening.

About "This Place Rules"
Acclaimed for his unfiltered reporting and deadpan humor, Andrew Callaghan brings his gonzo style reporting to HBO to explore the undercurrents that led to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. As one of the best-known and hardest working journalists of his generation, the 25-year-old ventures on a wild RV journey through America to take the pulse of a divided nation. In 2020, as COVID rages, protests sweep the country, and a monumental election looms, Callaghan captures the chaos in the streets and a wide spectrum of views – with just a camera and a microphone. Delving into a world of political division, white nationalist groups and conspiracy theorists, “This Place Rules” exposes the perfect storm in the months preceding the Capitol attack and serves as a stark warning that these forces show no sign of abating.
