Wondery Presents: Operator

During the 1-900 number craze of the Nineties, one company provided the vast
majority of phone sex. American Telnet was an empire founded by the man who
called himself “The Telephone Pimp.” He ran the company “like General Motors”
and got filthy rich doing it. But for the (mostly) women who answered the calls
and delivered fantasies 24-7, it was a different story. The powerful stigma against
sex work was always lurking just beneath the surface until it threatened to tear
apart the whole company. Hosted by Tina Horn (Why Are People Into That?),
OPERATOR is an eight-part series about big ambitions, Shakespearean-level
corporate backstabbing, men and women at the cutting edge of a technological
revolution…and on the front lines of a sexual one.
