On The Mountain Life, Pete Stoughton and Lynn Ware Peek are talking with journalist Gabrielle Bluestone, who is the executive producer of the hit Netflix documentary Fyre.

Bluestone brings an eye-opening look at con artists, grifters, and snake oil salesmen of the digital age, and she helps explain why we can’t stop falling for them.

Her new book is: HYPE: How Scammers, Grifters, and Con Artists Are Taking Over the Internet—and Why We're Following.
