"Such a great piece of storytelling and a fascinating look into a misunderstood/overlooked industry."

"This is like a Louis Theraux documentary but for your ears! A fascinating look at the impact of pornography becoming freely available online with the invention of Pornhub and the effect on numerous lives as a consequence. Don't be put off by the fact it's about porn. This podcast has covered this topic in a way that is tasteful and incredibly informative"

"Although I do feel the first episode oversold the wacky hijinks involving the postage stamp collector, I thoroughly enjoyed this series. It certainly taught me to think about porn and the internet in a slightly different way. "
