Good show for those who are patient.

Very informative show but you’ll want to skip past the first 15 minutes of most episodes which consists of the lady rambling off topic. The flirting and constant giggling about minutia is rather annoying but if you can endure that, they eventually will get to substantive material and talk about a wide range of interesting fraud topics.

YeeeahBuddy!!! ,
