Had potential but spirals into mean girls

Came for the Calloway episode. Guest Kayleigh started off pretty good, but it soon became apparent halfway in that there would be no attempt to broaden the implications of the supposed scammer, just constant middle school level dunking. And when I say dunking, I mean dunking. Fake laughs, cruel comments, comparisons to nazism. I love snark, but the host has no control of her show. Gonna be a pass for me.

Wow, this is bad ... so, so bad

The only reason I am giving this podcast two stars instead of one is because if you like drinking games you’ll be sure to get your fill with the “oh my God”s and “like”s from this room full of millennials (although they can’t be bothered to be in the same room apparently anyway as this is all done via a crappy phone connection). The chitchatting was bad enough but when they veered off to talk about the gossip girls and Dumbo they completely lost any credibility they might’ve had. If you want to listen to some good podcasts about the same subject I recommend Swindled and The Grift.

I thought journalists would do research

I was excited to find this podcast at first, because I’m fascinated by these schemes going horribly wrong. What I got was a collection of under researched episodes and hosts with a surprisingly condescending tone for the lack of research. The episodes veer off into tangents without earning it from getting the audience familiar with them/on their side. Also the combining of DashCon and TanaCon was laughable considering it barely scraped the surface of either disaster and descended into a diatribe on worrying about “kids these days”.
