Update, 6.12.15: The podcast has now launched, and you can listen or subscribe to Actuality in iTunes.

Quartz and Marketplace are collaborating on a new podcast. It’s still in preview mode, but we’re releasing the latest episode for your enjoyment and feedback. Listen as hosts Tim Fernholz and Sabri Ben-Achour dig into Popcorn Time, the user-friendly application to stream films and television without (much to the dismay of Netflix) having to pay.

We’re joined by Quartz’s John McDuling, who investigated Popcorn Time a few weeks ago; as well as Popcorn Time developer Robert English; and University of Maryland law professor James Grimmelmann, who specializes in intellectual property and other issues in Internet law.

Please send us your thoughts on the episode and suggestions for what we should discuss in the future. You also can listen to preview episodes in which we take on the topics of super batteries and ocean extinction, and, soon, so very soon, subscribe to future episodes wherever fine podcasts are distributed.
