Publisher's Summary

From sex trafficking and fraud to government secrets and anonymous hacking groups, this definitive exploration and exposé of the dark web goes where no documentary has gone before. 

The anonymous and lawless online environment of the Dark Web makes headlines on a daily basis. It touches all of our lives, without our knowledge, in many different ways. But where do the myths end and reality begin? 

Tech writer and broadcaster Geoff White (Channel 4 News) wants to find out. He casts an investigatory light on the dark underworld of the internet. We join him on a shocking tour of its secrets, revealing corporate hackers, paedophile rings, fraud on an international scale, conspiracy theories, drug dealers, gun runners, spies and specialist police investigators. 

Driven by undercover recordings, anonymous contributors and expert interviews, this in-depth, journalistically-rigorous current affairs investigation leaves no online stone unturned in its quest for the truth. 

As an Audio Show - free for members - when you add The Dark Web to your library, you'll get all 10 episodes, each with a runtime of about 25 minutes.

Interesting, intriguing foray into the Dark Web

A very fascinating series about The Dark Web, who's using it, why it's important to know about, and some of its history. Discusses other topics such as cryptocurrencies. Short episodes of about 20 minutes.

If only I could actually listen to it

Love the content and bought it immediately after listening to sample. Unfortunately, it seems like it's not compatible with the audible app. Cannot listen to it from my phone at all and can’t return it either. $15 for an audible book that you cannot listen to? Would rather buy a brick.

Unable to listen or download.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I "purchased" this series for free as an Audible member. It shows up in my library on web, but I cannot view episodes, play or download. It does not show up in my Android app at all after logout/login, killing the app & restarting, etc.

If you have a boring commute...this will fix it.

Listened to this because I have a long, boring commute. It was riveting, and an eye-opener.

Very interesting and informative

My only wish is that the narrator had recorded his commentary in a quiet space. It sounds like he was in a busy coffee shop while recording his bits

Very well written and keeps you interested

This was a well written book/podcast series. opens up a new world, and clears up misconceptions about the dark web. Audio performance is great although, I could do without the background coffee shop noises in some segments

BEST BEGINER GUIDE

I was always curious about the term dark web. This audio book is surely one of the best method to get to know about the origin and all the myths and facts about dark web.
It's free so must read for an enthusiast

Far better than anticipated

I was already somewhat familiar with the dark web but this well balanced and informative read really showed me how little I knew.

Dangerous Information

This is not the kind of information allowed in a police state. Amazon will not be allowed to keep this up long. Download it now, and copy it to a secure location. Insiders at Audible say this series is scheduled for deletion.

Lacks the depth expected

skims the surface of the dark web. some interviews are difficult to hear. sound as if they were recorded in a noisy cafe.

Eye Opening.

If you want to know about terms that you've heard from time to time and what the different internet technologies are used for or can be used for, both good and bad. Then listen to this.

Really excellent!

Never imagined this is how deep the web went. Well researched and produced. Presentation, however, left a lot to be desired... it was quite Difficult to get adjusted to Geoff White's inability to say the letter "r". So what he would say was: "...the weestwictive wegulations aw weally weally weediculous"

Worth listening!

While incomplete in some places, and even superficial in some analyses, this series is worth the time because there is so little on this subject that is as accessible. We need to hear about this! The final episode, a panel discussion, is the best in my opinion. It gets down to the basic ethical issue at the root of whether anonymity is good or bad. The panelists are wonderfully articulate! They do not oversimplify. I love the fact that in a day of cultural relativism, there was evidence that the idea of RIGHT and wrong, lawful and unlawful, still are valued. The closing statement says it all: it comes down to whether we are at root good or bad!

good read

simple and to the point, gives you a decent understanding of TOR and how the seediest of people use it for very bad things
