Summary

This program contains sexual content and occasional adult language. An episode also includes mentions of suicide. Please keep that in mind when choosing when and where to listen.

Millions of people–looking to cheat on their partners–signed up for Ashley Madison in the early 2000s, seeking a private space to share their public desires. The promise of discretion was shattered in the summer of 2015, when anonymous hackers stole the company’s cache of user information and published it worldwide. The result? One of the most shocking data breaches of the internet age. Overnight, millions of unfaithful spouses had their real names, addresses and sexual preferences published online in a searchable database that anyone could browse. Presented by acclaimed actress Sophie Nélisse, told through the dramatic stories of those who were caught up in the hack, and from experts who put it all into the context of our rapidly changing internet culture, Exposed: The Ashley Madison Hack serves as a cautionary tale for anyone whose secrets live in the cloud–and what happens when trust is broken both online and in the real world.

Unsure - sorry!!

Feel awful about writing this but the structure is really basic and the story itself isn’t strong enough to hold that. It’s easy to miss the bombshell moments and to switch off…feels like the stakes aren’t high enough. Maybe would hav had more impact if the long bits about mechanics of data breaches, email contents, cyber security and tracking down hackers was balanced with BIG emotions from scorned wives, cheating spouses etc? I guess access made this one difficult.

Interesting but dull

This was a huge story at the time, but the audiobook seemed to ramble on a bit and failed to convey the impact and the damage done by the hack. Maybe we are too used to the TV investigative documentaries these days, and some things don't translate so well to an audiobook narration. I fought through to the end but felt a bit disappointed. Sorry.

Will undoubtedly raise an eyebrow

The subject itself is quite interesting -
Will certainly raise some challenging and potentially ambivalent reactions in most listeners, I’m sure.
But despite the inherent psychological valence of such an emotive subject –
I felt it was only the performances that warranted a warning…
A Vocal Fry warning!

Thought-provoking

Around any relationship and how much data we share freely! Ironically not enough data between ourselves.

The lack of exciting content about the people who were on the site

I was expecting more interesting content regarding the people who met but I zoned out a lot of the time as it was more about the company
