5 boxes of various sizes framed in lime green with a digital image of a topless woman. The words in black on a lime green back ground are: The Pornhub Empire and and Understood in black text on a  yellow background. In the corner is the CBC logo in white.
Pornhub — that site you only access on your browser's incognito mode? It gets way more views than Netflix. But because of the sheepishness and stigma around porn, it's treated as if it's fringe, instead of what it really is: one of Canada's largest cultural exports. In The Pornhub Empire: Understood, hear the story of how a Montreal-founded company came to dominate the adult industry — only to have its reputation obliterated in a massive scandal — and where it stands today.

A woman with blonde shoulder-length hair with arms folded in a tiger print top against a red background. BBC and CBC logos are in black against the red background at the top. The words Joanne McNally Investigates are in white and "Who Replaced" (is in white on a black block) and the words AVRIL LAVIGNE? are in black on a white background.
Avril Lavigne struck a chord with her rebellious teen angst in the early aughts, and she still performs to sold-out crowds to this day. But what if the Avril we've been following all these years is not the same Avril we fell in love with? What if — as a curious theory claims — Avril was replaced by a look-alike at the height of her fame?

For all the pastry lovers - THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW returns to CBC Gem on March 8, and there are thousands more great titles to watch for free. Want to take your entertainment on the road and stimulate your mind? Check out CBC Listen and download a new podcast or music playlist today.
