Identifying the Con Artists, Grifters and Snake Oil Salesman of the Digital Age

040121-hype-book-headshot-1617317900_0.jpg

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.
