Payin’ To Playin’

Episode 288

There is an old quote attributed to John Lee Hooker who said, “If you ain’t playin’, you payin’.” There is a lot of truth to that statement, although he probably wasn’t thinking about what is happening now in the entertainment world. In this episode, Ric takes a strong look (and aim) at the notion of pay to play business models out there. Yes, that does include multi-level marketing. As Ric will tell you, it is a predatory practice that takes advantage of the emotional connection people have with money. He says it is sad and wrong but, it looks like we are stuck with this situation.
