quote [ Welcome to The Butterfly Effect. It's sort of about porn, but it's about a lot of other things. It's sad, funny, moving and totally unlike some other nonfiction stories about porn - because it isn't judgmental or salacious. It's human and sweet and strange and lovely. It's a mystery story, an adventure. It's also, I think, a new way of telling a story. This season follows a single butterfly effect. The flap of the butterfly's wings is a boy in Brussels having an idea. His idea is how to get rich from giving the world free online porn. ]
You may remember Jon Ronson from The Psychopath Test
and The Men Who Stare at Goats
to name but a few. I've always found his approach and interview style very compelling and the story here - the rise of PornHub and its impact in the industry we all love is fascinating.
