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

Good for an introduction to the basic facets

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Audio quality was somewhat poor, especially in certain interviews. I'd describe it as mobile-phone grade recording. Overall, I felt it was a good first introduction to the issues hosted on the Dark Web. However, it is also highly sensationalised, which is somewhat ironic considering episode 9 features an interview about whistleblowing which details how people are less likely to approach journalists who simply write "DARK WEB BAD!", which is almost exactly what is happening in this series. I would recommend the series to those wanting an overview of the negative aspects of the Dark Web, but if you want more technical information and a balanced view of the non-insidious activities which take place, look elsewhere.

An insightful 10-part documentary 5*


An insightful 10-part documentary by Technology journalist, Geoff White (Channel 4 News).

I learnt a lot.


1. The birth of the dark web
2. The untold story of the dark web
3. Bitcoin’s days are numbered
4. How not to buy a gun on the dark web
5. Hackers for hire
6. The virus kingpin
7. Cyber crime Inc.
8. The child porn paradox
9. A dark force for good
10. Anonymity on trial

Found everything brilliant except part 10 (34 minutes); a group of knowledgeable people discuss anonymity and the dark web. Compared to what preceded it, this episode was rather dull.

Fascinating history

I have a computer science background and whilst I had a passing understanding of technologies like Tor and bitcoin, the history of the technology was new to me and very well presented. The Silk Road saga typically takes all the headlines so was grateful to get a broader picture of what's really going on across the so called "dark web". Unsurprisingly there's plenty of murky goings-on if you know where to look, but it manages not to get too think-of-the-children overly dramatic despite lengthy focus on the shadier topics typically associated with the dark web.

Episodes rattle along at a nice pace. Being a geek I wouldn't have minded a little more detail of the underlying tech, but I expect I'm the minority!

A fascinating show and leant far more than I expected.

A great introductory series into the dark web

This show takes you right to the start of how the dark web was born, and how it's changed and where it is today. The show features interviews that provide lots of information without feeling academic. It is well produced and goes at a pace that leaves you both entertained and informed. A great background listen. I highly recommend this.

Great Audio Show

What did you like most about The Dark Web?

I realised how much I didn't know about The Dark Web. I really enjoyed learning about how it came to be.

Well worth a listen

Sign of a great read (listen !) - started with episode 1 and pretty much didn't stop until the end. A serious attempt to take the sensationalism out of a topic the press loves to talk about. Doesn't attempt to offer any big final conclusion (indeed the last episode is a debate about the right to have anonymity ) but it is very likely you will learn something if you are anything other than a computer expert. Very good.

Intriguing, eye-opening, unsettling!

A well done work which explains things in easy-to-understand manner without taking away the intricacies of the subject. Good examples, interviews, and a fantastic final episode to end the series.

Amateur journalism

Just go listen too the “case-file” podcast on “Silk Road” it’s three parts and far more interesting than this 10 part “bit”on self indulgent ego driven trash....

The Dark Web - exposed

Geoff White presents an excellent coverage of this intriguing topic with a superb balance of interviews. The technical detail and actual experience of people in the field give it credibility and my full attention! Well worth the time to hear this through, and inspiring to learn more. With appreciation for the effort to create this! Jennifer Elwin
