It is a very discreet giant of the Web. The general public generally does not know its name or that of its leaders. And yet, with nearly 42 billion views of its sites claimed in 2019, MindGeek is one of the most successful companies on the internet. Its best-known sites, PornHub and YouPorn, are among the most visited porn sites in the world.

Who is Feras Antoon, one of the Montreal CEOs of the group, who has been causing a lot of ink to flow since the start of the year in Quebec? Why has MindGeek become the target of Quebec authorities? And why has this empire recently been forced to rethink how it works after complaints from hundreds of women around the world?

In this episode of the podcast “L’Heure du Monde”, Hélène Jouan, correspondent for World in Montreal, lift the veil on this mysterious and powerful company.

An episode produced by Cyrielle Bedu, directed by Amandine Robillard and presented by Morgane Tual.
