    Welcome to Multi Level Mondays, a weekly series all about multi level marketing, pyramid schemes, and ponzi schemes.

    Seaworld is now known for their mistreatment of animals and the numerous orca attacks they tried to conceal. Now that it’s all out there, the theme park is back, trying to exploit their killer whales once again. As the company tries to convince the public that they’ve changed, we look at why we should be wary of that claim.

    Welcome to the Corporate Casket, a semiweekly series where bad businesses go to die. We will discuss any and everything from bad charities, terrible CEOs, and businesses that have a lot to hide. 

    The Kardashian church seems like a way for them, along with other celebrities to worship. However, those that have looked closer into this organization say it’s nothing more than a tax haven, or a way for the Kardashians to potentially hide their money. Today we’re looking at this celebrity church to see what its purpose really is.

    Welcome to the Corporate Casket, a semiweekly series where bad businesses go to die. We will discuss any and everything from bad charities, terrible CEOs, and businesses that have a lot to hide. 

    PETA claims they care about the ethical treatment of animals, yet their radical campaigns have diminished their message for decades. They’re considered the world's largest kill shelter, yet they’re also known for being one of the largest animal advocates. Which one are they? We’ve talked about PETA multiple times before, and this all-encompassing episode will take a look at PETA in full to answer that question.

Love it!! 😍😍😍

Hi Blair-san, My name is Hannah from New Hampshire and I watch your youtube channel a lot. I showed my mom the DevaCurl episode of C.C and it really helped her find a better product. I really found the episode on the “2nd Holocaust” is what I’m calling it because I don’t recall the exact name really informative and educational. Thank you for bringing great content to so many people. I also have a question about Casper. How is he doing at this point? I was curious to know that. Hannah M

Great show

Great show, very informative and well researched. Often brings to light details that we often miss reading a quick news summary

aperepa ,

This show has been one of my favorite for the past few weeks. I also enjoy how she covers several different topics.
