The Drill Down 008 – The Torrent Show

It’s a supersize show this week, as we discuss everything you always wanted to know about torrents, but were afraid the RIAA would sue you for asking. Our guest is Smaran Dayal, who writes for Torrentfreak.com. We start with the basics on torrents, get into a heated debate regarding the legality of file sharing, and cover the best torrent sites, how to make a torrent, and how to avoid getting caught (if you DO happen to download the warez). Also, Muhammad tries out an old accent, just for fun!
