If you’re from eastern Kentucky, you know the name Eric C. Conn—a lawyer better known as “Mr. Social Security,” he had miles of bright yellow billboards, TV commercials, and a larger-than-life personality. While winning millions in social security benefits for clients, Conn cruised around one of the nation’s poorest counties in a Rolls-Royce, traveled the world, opened a brothel, intimidated his rivals, and so much more. But there was a problem: Conn was breaking all the rules to defraud the United States government of more than $550 million. And when he finally got caught, he fled the country! Featuring shady government officials, voodoo dolls, and an unbelievable manhunt, this is the story of one of the largest scams in U.S. history.

Con Non Grata

Eric Conn figured out how to abuse the system and make a mockery of the few safety nets the United States provides. It makes me furious (in between finding hilarity) that this was possible and was allowed to continue for so long. What makes me even more furious is the aftermath for Conn’s victims. Things need to change in this country.

Great Podcast

I haven’t had time to watch the doc series yet, so I decided to listen to this first. I wanted to watch the doc before listening to this, but this makes me want to watch it even more! This podcast does a great job of being a standalone, but I can’t wait to re-listen to it as a companion to the doc! Great work!
