In 2011, a sensational new black market website known as the “Silk Road” emerged on the dark net. This “Amazon of Illegal Drugs” was the brainchild of a mysterious, libertarian intellectual operating under the avatar “The Dread Pirate Roberts.” Promising its users complete anonymity, and total freedom from government regulation or scrutiny, Silk Road became a billion-dollar digital drugs cartel. Operating behind the special browser TOR and using on bitcoin, the criminal behind Silk Road would be taken down by a tenacious new special agent from the IRS assigned to the case. Joining Eric on this week’s podcast is that special agent, Gary Alford, to give is a glimpse into the puzzle that was Silk Road and his determination to find the clues necessary to crack the case.
