America: it's scams all the way down

Scams are American's defining crime and somehow have gotten even bigger in the "Information Age," with large swatchs of the country using MLMs as a retirement plan and essential oils for primary medical care. The best episodes of Scamwow are structured looks at scammers from American history and the headlines. The more skippable ones (for me) are the less-structured conversations with friends.

Like but could be better

The topics are interesting but I agree with other reviewers that it could be tightened up. I don’t really mind the vocal fry but it does get a bit much at times in this pod, I kind of wish they could stick to topic at hard without all the “OH MY GOOOODDDDD”. It would also be nice if they did a little more research so they didn’t have to keep talking about how “dumb” they are. Believe in yourselves ladies. I like when the pod gets a little political cause it is the reality of life.

These wonderful ladies really grow on you

I started this podcast with high expectations; I figured it’d be “My Favorite Murder” but with scams. I wasn’t wrong, but it’s more than that. I was initially mildly irritated by the hosts and wasn’t loving the flow. If you start on episode one, push through! They quickly start to feel like dear friends of yours once they hit their stride. The episode that finally put this podcast into “I need to write my five-star review” territory for me was episode 20, about Audrey Kitching. It has everything you want in a podcast: humor, emotion, a gripping story, and interesting perspectives. If you weren’t sold by episode one, hang in there! Every episode just gets better!
