Publisher's Summary

[Contains explicit content] Is the problem with the Dark Web or is it us? If we think we can get away with something, it's only human to be tempted — isn't it? So is our online behaviour that surprising, when our identities are hidden?

The issue of an internet where everyone is anonymous is discussed by Geoff White, Channel 4 News's former Technology Reporter. He's joined by a former spy, a sex blogger, a cyber security chief and a psychologist. He also speaks with a hacker who says it's us, the victims, who are responsible when things go wrong.

Caution

The dark web is not the same as the deep web I later discovered. The dark web is a phenomena that affects society, regardless of hemisphere. You may not like the topic but it is required information relating to 21st century current events, and even your safety. A stigma is attached to knowing about the dark web. Take care to who you tell your new found knowledge to. Many of us will find it chilling at least. My wife thinks I am weird or queer to be interested in this type knowledge, but her assessment is mistaken. The dark web is real. It is not a joke. I have never perused it, and I don't intend to. However, there is a part of the dark web that is beneficial to society at large. To know them, you must take the challenge and listen.

Absolutely fascinating, and scary

Not sure what the "1-star trolls" have in issue with this but maybe they're "dark-webbers" not liking the new light being brought on all the nefarious activities going on through this medium.

It would have been quite helpful for the authors, and the series if the FBI, CIA, NSA type organizations had granted interviews, however there's a wealth of information here just the same.

How to stop this? I just read an article that North Korean hackers stole 68+ million out of an Indian bank, along with multiple other horrors. However it is stopped, and that's not fully worked out yet, creating a series like this to heighten public awareness is an important step. So thank you to the authors!

Fascinating...

A sober, practical overview of how it all works, why it exists and some of the very ‘real life’ implications of human nature when it thinks nobody’s watching. I know far more now than I did but I have a thousand more questions because of it. Would love another series.

I learned a huge amount about the dark web.

A fascinating series about the dark web, something I knew nothing about before. Worth listening to.

Overall very good besides Ep.10.

Would you try another book written by Geoff White and Bernard P. Achampong or narrated by Geoff White?

YES!

What will your next listen be?

not sure

How did the narrator detract from the book?

narrator was very good :)

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ep. 10: Anonymity On Trial (The Dark Web)?

i would of cut the first 25 minutes of Ep.10 because it was a waste of time.

Any additional comments?

Sad way to end a great series.
