Where to Start
Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admission Scandal
This week, Sara and Danny are back with a breakdown of the college admissions scandal that landed Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman in prison (for like, 2 minutes). They start off with some background on the ringleader of the scheme, Rick Singer, and how he ended up making millions from sneaking in rich kids to elite colleges. Then they go into how the whole scheme was discovered and ultimately busted, and the all the fallout from the federal investigation that followed. They also discuss the recent Netflix documentary, Operation Varsity Blues, and whether it was a hit or a miss. To end the episode, they play a game of Easy Fake, where they try to guess which absurdly named college courses are real and which are fake.
Scammers Are Taking Over The Internet Ft. Gabrielle Bluestone
Sara and Danny are back with a fascinating conversation with journalist Gabrielle Bluestone about her new book “HYPE: How Scammers, Grifters, and Con Artists Are Taking Over the Internet―and Why We're Following.” They go all into how social media has ushered in a new type of scams and grifts into our lives and what implications influencers can have on our world at large. They also discuss Gabrielle’s involvement in the FYRE documentary and how that experience informed the book and what it shows us about where we are heading. You can follow her on Twitter @g_bluestone and her book is out April 6th!
Kevin Trudeau: The Infomercial King
Sara and Danny are back to cover a fraudster for the ages: Kevin Trudeau and his seemingly unending list of schemes and scams. They go over Trudeau’s journey from beginning to end, including his participation in MLMs, dubious self-help books, and so called miraculous health products, all the while being actively pursed by the FTC for his numerous crimes and infractions. Then, they play a game of “As Seen on NATCP!” where they try to name infamous infomercial products from years gone by.
Love you guys so much. The content and commentary is spot on. I love crime but I neeeed the comedy mixed in because I’m a Scorpio and my only sense of humor is dark.
Every Monday I listen to NATCP and I feel like I am catching up with friends talking about crime and conspiracies over coffee.
It’s —-not another—- true crime podcast! It’s not the same as others (which I also like). This is TRULY like doing a rundown of a case with your friends sitting around. The hosts are great and hilarious! The fan base is as well.
