We're going into the Patreon archives for a deep dive into the most thirsty and scam happy "doctors" in showbiz: Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, and Dr. Drew.
*side note: babes I'm sorry for the shit sound. I recorded this while away and doing my best to be a ~coNtent machine~ throughout so that was the best I could do. But I'm back! It'll be less shitty k thanks luv u.
16:18 – Dr. Phil
His questionable methods, his many lawsuits and multiple allegations made against him, the time he visited Britney Spears in her hospital room for content, Bhad Bhabie and his nightmarish interior decor style (see below, cw: the worst interior design you've ever witnessed. Yes, I mean this)
55:52 – Dr. Oz
The biggest fall from grace: from an esteemed cardiothoracic surgeon & professor at Columbia to a quack snake oil salesman being questioned by congress and every reputable research hospital in the country. Includes the many baseless cures he's sold and his current career path as Fox News golden child and Republican political candidate.
1:17:20 – Dr. Drew
The thirstiest of them all, including hosting Celebrity Marriage Boot Camp, Celebrity Rehab, Celebrity Sex Rehab, commenting on the psyche of every struggling or recently deceased celeb and a lot more.

We're joined by Shannon of Fluently Forward to go deep into the world of conspiracy theories, from the ones that run rampant today to where they originated from. 
The episode focuses on the Satanic Movement that gained popularity in the 1980s, a moral panic that caused thousands of investigations into elementary school teachers with no evidence of wrongdoing. We trace it to today, where these same types of theories are spread by groups from QAnon to spiritual teachers and cult leaders like Teal Swan alike. And for good measure, we talk about the celeb that is promoting beliefs espoused by the Satanic Panic movement, Kat Von D.

We're here with Veronica Skaia of TikTok's @futurepods to talk about the latest influencer scandals and ask the bigger questions of what our outrage says about us. We dissect the paradox influencers find themselves in: Be relatable! But honest. But don't complain. But be real! We cover Mikayla Nogueira, The Try Guys' "nice guy" image and why Ned Fulmer's cheating scandal threatened their brand, the red flags of "wife guys", the YouTuber MrBeast making $53 million dollars at 23 years old (!!) and more.
We also talk Hailey Bieber (50:33) - her Call Her Daddy interview, decision to address Selena Gomez at this moment and fundamental lack of vibes.
