    Wondery Presents: Scamfluencers

    Wondery Presents: Scamfluencers

    You never really know someone…especially online. In today’s world, the power of influence can be the quickest path to money and fame, and it often ends in ruin. These are the stories of the world’s most insidious Scamfluencers. And we are their prey. On Wondery’s new weekly series, join co-hosts Scaachi Koul and Sarah Hagi as they unpack epic stories of deception from the worlds of social media, fashion, finance, health, and wellness. These influencers claim to be everything from charismatic healers to trusted financial insiders to experts in dating. They cast spells over millions. Why do we believe them, and how does our culture allow them to thrive? From Black Swan Murder to a fake social media influencer to an audacious Hollywood Ponzi schemer, each season will take the listener along the twists and turns, the impact on victims, and what’s left when the facade falls away.

    “Liam Neeson”

    “Liam Neeson”

    Avid fly fisherman Liam Neeson brings his very particular set of skills (and his Stanley thermos) to the show this week. To Sean’s dismay, we don’t talk about Star Wars. However, of his over 100 film roles, we discuss Alfred Kinsey, Oskar Schindler… and Jesus. And the time he made Jason’s mom cry for a week.

Great Content, but WAY TOO MANY ADS!!!

I tried to listen to the Bill Mahar episode today while riding my bike. There were so many long consecutive ad breaks that I had to stop and listen to music instead. It was painful. I almost forgot what I was listening to and I’m a big fan of Bill Mahar.

Mulaney slays

I’m relatively new to the ‘cast and I enjoy it very much. (I do worry about the intensity of Dad jokes at Sean’s expense, but maybe that’s on me.)
Anywho, I listened to the recent John Mulaney episode and I have to say that absolutely nothing has made me laugh as hard in years. Hard enough that I felt compelled to write a review no one will read. So, thank you! Byyyeeeeee!

My Favorite Part is When Sean Gets Bullied
