Everyone who has seen porn should listen to S1

What I’m saying is you should listen to season 1.

S2 is interesting too, but S1 is particularly eye-opening.

Not what I thought it would be

I was very interested in season 1 because you get an inside view of what the porn industry is. I was glad to hear all of the positive stories about the stars but I was expecting more of some of the darker stories such as girls getting stuck in the industry or corrupt directors. If those things are not happening in this world, then that is fantastic but that’s what I thought the podcast was about. Season 2 was also interesting, it just wasn’t the turn I was expecting. And if we did season 2 about August Ames then we should also look into the other girls who killed themselves as well.

Why do I have to do a title

Jon’s voice is ridiculous. But I respect his instincts. My instinct tells me that he thought this was going to be a juicier story than it turned out to be. I mean no disrespect to August and her loved ones.
