Illuminating & entertaining

I knew there were scammers out there but had no idea the extent of it. This is a great podcast to help educate yourself & loved ones. A lot of the stories are truly captivating. The Hollywood Con Queen is my favorite so far.
I wish they would stop switching hosts though 😥 I loved Will's natural, conversational tone. He left. Then I was really starting to appreciate how bright & witty Michelle is & she left. Bob is OK (sorry, Bob). He has a great laugh but there's a choppy flow to his hosting. I'm still a year behind so who knows how many more hosts they'll have. I'll keep listening anyway. And I'm putting it in my mum's playlist for when she finally figures out podcasts.

Aaaa😄😃😀😃😃😀😄 ,
