This is good journalism. It was entertaining and interesting. I did not feel that Jon supported either side and he certainly gave us things to think about. As one reviewer mentions, this is more about how tech and it's ability to make porn free have changed the whole business and how accessible it has made porn. While he talks about teens and how they are viewing porn, it is also a microcosm of how tech is changing the world.
One porn producer is upset about how difficult it has made his life, yet this is how tech has changed everybody's lives for the good and bad. I once dreamed about retiring and buying a used book store. I love books and love to be around them. I have a library in my house. I used to go to bookstores all the time. When my wife and I would go on vacation, we would spend a lot of time going to used book stores in the towns we traveled through. Now I listen to books through audio and write reviews. I rarely buy a hard copy. I will never buy a copy of this book, even though I liked it. Used books stores are going out of business along with the new book stores all across America. My dream is dead, yet I am part of the reason. Radio Shack and Video stores no longer exist. I drive a truck for a living and they are talking about self driving vehicles.
There is some good and some bad to this revolution.

I have to admit the only reason why I got this is because it was free. i am so glad I gave this a chance. This podcast, interview, investigative journalism really made me think of what actually happens when porn becomes free. Jon Ronson does a very good job being objective. He not only follows the Grandfather of free porn but also the actors, the victims of free porn, the people who have anxiety becuase of the easy access.
I will never think of Pornhub the same way again.

Cannot recommend this enough. A must for fans of Ronsons work but essential listening for anyone, especially those who on the face of it might normally avoid this subject.

Started listening and thought I knew where it how it would end, totally wrong, really well done program, thought provoking and handled with care, enjoyable and informative, 5 star listen.
