Ah, the Summer of Scam. Every week in the summer of 2018, it felt like, there was some new, juicy story about an outrageous grifter. There was Anna Delvey, the foreign chick who scammed New York acquaintances and businesses out of tens of thousands of dollars. Anna March. And who can forget the ex-cop who rigged McDonald's Monopoly game?

But it wasn't just the summer of 2018. The months before had brought a parade of cons and scams, from Fyre Fest to the whole Theranos thing, and the months ahead will likely bring more.

We couldn't stop reading and watching these stories. Or talking about them. And we're guessing you couldn't, either.

So we started American Grift, a podcast where we dive into the absolutely bugnuts world of these confidence men, women, and everyone in between. Each episode takes on one story. We are confident the world will provide us with unlimited material.

You can find new episodes on SoundCloud and iTunes twice a month.

Thanks for giving us something for nothing, idiot.
Annas Delvey
$5 or more per month
You get to listen to each episode 3 days before the rest of the world! Also you'll get to vote in a poll for what the next episode should be.


We'll never actually listen to what the poll says we should do.

Same as the Anna Delvey tier, but we'll read your name at the end of the episode in a thank-you section.


In six months, we'll club you over the head with a dildo and steal your identity.

We'll randomly choose a Patron to pick a grifter story to discuss!
