I love it!

This has been my favorite show for years! So glad it’s here so I can listen all day. The show is not only interesting but helpful in regards to showing all the types of scams and also helping one to think critically. This show has saved me from so many scams! I also love that the show gives empathy to the victims.

I can’t get through any episodes because his voice is so uninteresting that I zone out. Topics are not interesting either, at least the way they are presenting them they’re not

Lol

Dudes over here heated over the Duncan D. Hunter episode. I thought, as I did the other episodes, it was very interesting.
