  • Interesting Titles and Discussion

    I like that this podcast highlights titles I might not otherwise explore. Also like that it’s in a short, easily digestible segment.

    Every day it’s books about some oppressed person railing against their oppressor. And if a book covers something the preening, smug host doesn’t personally enjoy, he’ll make sure to tell you about it. Wish a more diverse book show existed that posted as consistently. Since most books are basically the same concept, if you DO like these titles you’re in for a treat, however. But your likes have better be super narrow and constricted to cosmetically diverse oppression wars.

I looked for assistance for months before I eventually came into a Reddit post about Wizard James Recovery, which discuss... more

  • All things considered, it was a fantastic and enlightening experience that allowed me to get my money back from an online investment platform that had tricked me into investing with their fictitious business before I discovered their strategy. I had already paid absurdly large withdrawal fees of $45,000 under the terms of the agreement that nobody had informed me about, so it was too late for me after I invested a sum $389,250. The damage had been done, and I was in too deep to just walk away, s... more
