    Welcome to the Corporate Casket, a weekly series where bad businesses go to die.

    Isn’t sports betting just illegal gambling? For a while, this was the case. But just a few years ago, sports betting was legalized and now, we’re starting to see the consequences of it. Today, we’ll look into the problems around the sports betting industry and see if this new form of entertainment and gambling is as safe as it claims.

    Welcome to Multi Level Mondays, a weekly series all about multi level marketing, pyramid schemes, and ponzi schemes.
    Lemongrass claims to be different, unique: they’re a clean, sustainable makeup line with an opportunity for women to make money. But we’ve heard these claims from MLMs before—many times. Typically, they’re too good to be true; Lemongrass may have ‘clean’ products, but are their tactics dirty?

    Welcome to the Corporate Casket, a weekly series where bad businesses go to die.

    It’s common knowledge at this point: makeup contains toxic chemicals. But how harmful are they really? Can the levels of harm do lasting, permanent damage, or are our beauty products as damaging as anything else we eat and consume? How do we know what to avoid and where to go from here?

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

    Wake Up Now seemed to sell everything, from energy drinks to finance aid. As an MLM, it may not be a surprise to learn that they were accused of being a pyramid scheme. However, the company itself has blamed their CEO for their failure—and their shut down.

    Welcome to the Corporate Casket, a weekly series where bad businesses go to die.

    Jenny Craig, yet another dieting company has a long history of misleading advertising. Are their products effective at all? Have they really earned their place as a popular weight loss product? Or are they just shilling hope and even dangerous practices to people desperate to lose weight?

    Welcome to the Corporate Casket, a weekly series where bad businesses go to die.

    When natural disasters strike, charitable people leap into action, giving what they can to those in need. But how do you know you’re giving to the right people? Not only are there scammers using natural disasters like Katrina and Hawaii’s wildfires as a cash cow, but there are those that effectively monetize tragedy to line their pockets.

Sweetinferno ,

100% recommended

Amazing content , i learn a lot for her plus her voice is perfect ! 🥰 always waiting to listen each week . The first one that got me into podcast . Love this podcast so much !

SweetSaryia ,

Content the, plagiarism, and threatening controlling and gaslighting her friends

Blair is not a good person, she steals content and blatantly plagiarizes from smaller creators, she also bully’s people who are close to her, she’s emotionally and financially abusive to those who care about her and she doesn’t deserve your support.

Military armrest ,

Terrible

This used to be a good podcast but the quality has really dropped off hard. Just another soulless cash grab content mill. Don’t waste your time when there are far better podcasts to spend your time listening to. Blair has given up completely and it shows.
