This free series from Audible is a multi-part audio documentary by bestselling author Jon Ronson who narrates and conducts interviews for the series as he spends a year examining the wide-ranging effects that free pornography has had on individuals throughout the United States and the world. The series starts with a man named Fabian who launched the site called PornHub which became the YouTube of free porn. From there Ronson follows the butterfly effect of how free porn has changed the lives of people in the porn industry, fueled some new industries, and affected the lives of porn viewers who were flooded with free streaming adult content. The series takes many twists and turns that are fascinating, amusing, bizarre, depressing, and even a few up-lifting. It does contain some sexually explicit language, but in general is focused on the effects that the Internet and free porn have had on people’s lives. You can listen to the entire 3 Hrs. 30 Min. series for free as a podcast.
