Finally, Robert and John get to really start exploring scams. What is a scam? Why is it so important to understand the mechanics that make something a scam, or not? What does this all have to do with technology and choice?
We dig in on a scam that Robert himself got snared by, and what he did about it. The image of throwing a ragdoll to a puppy is invoked. Listen to see how it came out.
