Napster

42 minutes

In less than two years, Napster became a global sensation... and then record labels and multi-platinum artists brought it crashing down. But in its short lifespan, Napster transformed our ideas about how we consume music, and how much we're willing to pay for it. This story comes from the podcast Spectacular Failures.


Twenty Thousand Hertz is produced out of the studios of Defacto Sound and hosted by Dallas Taylor
