Hi friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to the Dark History podcast. The Silk Road. No, not the one with Marco Polo. But the one with drugs, Dread Pirate Roberts, and murder for hire. Today we go into the history of the internet’s Silk Road, which some refer to as “Amazon but for Drugs.” And they’re not wrong, but oh boy, there is so, SO much more to it.
I appreciate you for coming by, and tune in next week for more dark history.
You can find Dark History podcast on Apple, Spotify, wherever you listen to your podcasts, and every Thursday here on my Youtube for the visual side of things.
