Droplifting and fake reviews


Good to see you again.

It was a sad time in our neighborhood when “the mayor” died. Our neighbor Art watched over everything that went on around here. He had lived in his house since 1956, and his favorite pastime was sitting on his porch checking in with everyone that walked past. In the podcast, we talk about some of our favorite Art memories, including his iconic truck and the rat’s nest he found in his car engine.

David found an interesting article about a network of fake Amazon reviewers that got caught.

Pepper talks about TikTokker Anneke Roberts; she’s an artist who makes fake Rae Dunn products and puts them back in the store. Anneke even got a Boing Boing article this week. Her videos and Etsy shop are hilarious.
