741: Telemarketers, CPR Scam, & Sports Addicts


Show Notes

Susie talks about her latest obsession, the Telemarketers docuseries on Max. She reveals how a huge telemarketing company changed the industry forever, why we’re all at risked of being scammed, and why this documentary is even crazier than you can imagine. Sarah has been watching a bunch of documentaries too, and she explains how they all tie together. We learn why CPR is kind of a scam, and it’s an open secret in the medical field that it’s usually a performance for the families rather than an effective treatment or life-saving technique. We learn about a tribe in Brazil that is at the center of a debate over land and Susie shares some bizarre ways the “uncontacted” tribe has been introduced to the modern world. We learn the science behind athletic achievements and the real reason it seems like athletes keep getting better. Plus, we lose our minds talking about The Deepest Breath documentary on Netflix, and they say it’s not a doc about free diving it’s really a doc about addiction.
