Sounds like MLM but ok Podcast
There is a great new podcast that you should check out. It exposes the predatory nature of MLM scams. It is hosted by grassroots consumer activists Katie Young, Sasha Zazzi and Zach Parker with a touch of snark.
Here are a few of their episodes to get you started:
Katie Young and Zach Parker sit down in this two-part series with anti-multi level marketing advocates Elle Beau and Botwatch. We discuss why they joined the #antimlmmovement, what leaving an MLM is like, and if you should buy MLM products from your friends.
In episode 2 of our 2 part series, “How to help a friend in an MLM”, Katie and Zach talk to guests Bot Watch and Elle Beau about how to talk to a friend in an MLM and what to do if your partner or significant other is in an MLM.
Today we look into the sordid story of Ellery Bennet, who followed the idea of “fake it till you make it.” After running up a large of debt, partially due to a failed MLM venture, his wife filed for divorce. He then murdered his wife, leaving a total of 5 chilling suicide notes. We discuss the background, the trial, and the aftermath of the case.
In light of “Smallville” star Allison Mack’s recent arrest for sex trafficking within the MLM sex cult NXIVM, Sasha Zazzi and Zach Parker go down the rabbit hole to investigate what really happened in the company. We also discuss founder Keith Raniere and his delusions of grandeur and sick entitlement.
THIS EPISODE CONTAINS DESCRIPTIONS OF SEXUAL ABUSE. LISTENER DISCRETION ADVISED
Ever had a friend who’s stuck in an MLM stay with it, even though you’ve shown them statistics that it’s a losing game? Or has your old college roommate with a STEM doctorate started to sell essential oils, even though you think she’d know better? Why are reps so tone-deaf regarding these companies and products when it’s against their better judgment? Join Zach Parker, Katie Young, and Sasha Zazzi as they go all in on the Hunbot-Dunning-Kruger Effect. They attempt to make sense of over-confident reps’ skill sets and knowledge, and how that’s a losing combination on top of their unfaltering loyalty. (Even OJ Simpson is partly to blame.)
