Be sure to subscribe so you get notified of new episodes! As America becomes more and more divided along political lines, it is more important than ever to understand the history of tech companies using data on individuals to create startlingly accurate profiles. Case in point, the Nazi campaign of the Holocaust of the Jews in the buildup to and during WWII was made up of six phases — the identification of the Jews, the expulsion of the Jews from society, the confiscation of their assets, the ghettoization of the Jews, their deportation, and finally, their extermination.

After the first segment of Messing With The Scammers, I received lots of positive feedback for listeners who enjoyed that segment. That time, I did it as part of a full episode; This segment is its own episode. I hope you enjoy it. The premise of this segment is taken from the sit-com, BJ and the Bear — from the late '70's / early '80's. The scammer that called me never figured out that I was basing our conversation off of a TV show — even when I said something about "every episode!" I quot the most ridiculous parts of the theme song, just for fun. I finally had to get pulled over by Sheriff L ..read more

It was a great joy to ha ..read more
