    Podcasts reviewed in this episode:
    WHO THE HELL IS HAMISH? - He was born Hamish Watson, a surfie dude from Sydney, but he could morph into whatever you needed him to be. For decades he's duped victims in the US, Canada, Britain, Hong Kong and Australia. How did he do it? How did he evade authorities for so long and what's he done with all those tens of millions of dollars he stole?
    BLACKOUT - Rami Malek stars in this apocalyptic thriller as a small-town radio DJ fighting to protect his family and community after the power grid goes down nationwide, upending modern civilization.
    CRIMINAL - A podcast about crime - not so much the "if it bleeds, it leads," kind of crime - something a little more complex. Stories of people who've done wrong, been wronged, and/or gotten caught somewhere in the middle (Episode 109: Homewrecker).
