Sarah Breau reviewed this podcast on Mar 13th, 2019
"This podcast amazed me. I loved how the arc of the first season curved from an intimate story of how MLM businesses affect ordinary people's lives, to how MLM businesses have shaped American politics. All told with charm and humor, by a host who always sounds like a best friend letting you in on a secret. I can't wait for season 2! This is one of my all time favorites."

"Very interesting listen. My heart broke for some of the people caught up in MLM. The woman wanting to get enough money to buy a headstone still sticks with me. "
