#680 Anatomy of a Scam

http://www.npr.org/sections/money/127413729/podcast/#

Planet Money is part of a slew of Podcasts from NPR.  As with most of the NPR podcasts Planet Money is a radio show, so the podcasts are journalistic and well done.  Hosts tackle a financial subject in a light professional manner.

This weeks episode deals with the quasi legal world of telemarketing.  Using a recorded phone conversation from a recent case,  Planet Money crew and a telemarketer guest provide a deconstruction of a telemarketing scam from the pitch to the close.

It is a good and sometimes uncomfortable listen, and very educational.  It was one of those podcasts that everyone should listen to.  Eventually we could reach a heavenly state of no telemarketing.
