Jon Ronson thinks he's found the Butterfly Effect in something that may or may not be part of your life — pornography, or digital porn to be more precise. Porn is one of the most-viewed forms of entertainment online and with Canadian-based web sites such as Pornhub, it has become freer and easier to access than ever before.

In his new podcast The Butterfly Effect, Ronson looks at how that access has impacted not only the lives of those who make porn, but also all of us, in ways that we might not suspect. 

The Butterfly Effect is free until Oct. 12 on Audible and will be available on iTunes in November.
