If you are going to listen to one episode this week, make it this one. In it a journalist takes on a scam call center.

Great episode. One of the hosts goes down the rabbit hole of finding out everything he can about the people behind a phone scam and it's awesome and funny.

Like messing with scammers? Me too. This podcast takes it to a whole new personal level.

This episode should win some kind of award. It's a fascinating piece of true storytelling. A journalist starts pulling the threads of a scam call center and unravels a really interesting story!

The best podcast episode I have listened to PERIOD. It's an episode about scams, hacking and offshore call centres. Some of the most hated things in the modern day. Alex G turns the narrative on it's head and puts a human face on a despised industry.

Scamming the scammers. I like it.

Damn. Never listened to this show till this episode popped up on my NPR One app. If this story doesn't suck you in, nothing will. So interesting.

I've always wanted to do something like this to scam callers. Turns out there's more to their side of the story.

Incredibly entertaining. Alex goes out of his way to find the truth behind a technical support phone scammer.
