Interesting topic but could be better

Enjoyed the parts that actually talked about MLMs and the history of them. As the show progresses it’s obvious there is a bias (and this is coming from someone who despises MLMs) and unprofessionalism. Found her personal views of Christianity tasteless and not relevant AT ALL to the discussion.

So freaking good

This podcast is important and incredibly entertaining.

Should be required listening!

I was hooked from the first episode. What makes this show so accessible is that everyone has a connection to an MLM experience. This show builds on those real-life experiences and enhances them with fascinating details about history, politics, psychology, business culture, gender norms and more. I was surprised by how much it synced up with other podcasts I’ve been hooked on - clearly Debra Newall’s desire to see the best in “Dirty John” has a psychological connection to the women who believe in the possibility of success in a MLM. The key now is to turn these insights into action. Thanks for the great work put into this podcast! So appreciated!
