COVID-19 Scams: The Rattlesnake King
Play • 42 min

The COVID-19 pandemic is a conman’s Super Bowl. In times like these, when there's so much uncertainty, snake oil salesmen are ready to promise you a cure.

In this episode, you'll hear from a woman who takes one of these miracle drugs. I ask her why she takes it.
