The fall of Napster (see Part I of this series) has left a vacuum in the world of file sharing - and as the saying goes, the Internet abhors vacuum... Various File Sharing programs such as Gnutella, Kazaa and others quickly filled the void. 
In this episode, we'll describe Grokster's legal battle against the Record Companies, the sinister poisoning of file sharing networks by OverPeer - and the rise of BitTorrent. 

Guest in this episode: Brett Bendistis, from The Citizen's Guide to the Supreme Court Podcast!

This series explores the history and future of podcasting, and each episode will feature a single guest who is a pioneer of podcasting. This time, we're interviewing Aaron Mankhe, from Lore Podcast.

Up till now, In the Heroes of Podcasting series, we heard podcasters who started podcasting back in the early days, in the mid 2000’s. Aaron is an exception, in that he started podcasting only some 5 or 6 years ago. Yet Aaron’s story is interesting for two reasons. Firstly, it is the story of the lone podcaster: someone who started - and is still doing it - all by himself. Secondly, it exemplifies the role of storytelling in podcasting, which is becoming more and more dominant in the last few years. Aaron talks about starting Lore, the value of storytelling and his inspirations.
