    Welcome to SCAMTIME, a true crime podcast where your hosts Stephanie and Karen talk about all sorts of cons and frauds, bamboozlers and hoodwinkers, and fun hoaxes.

    In this episode, Karen throws the book at archivist Greg Priore, and Stephanie paints a picture of prodigy artist Marla Olmstead. 400 year old bibles and 4 year old artists.  Would you commit a crime if you knew no one would be hurt and you'd probably never be caught?  And is the scammer in Marla's story actually the media?

    George Washington!

    A practical joke on a fig leaf!

    Sending your kids out to get more chips!

    Welcome to SCAMTIME, a true crime podcast where your hosts Stephanie and Karen talk about all sorts of cons and frauds, bamboozlers and hoodwinkers, and fun hoaxes.

    This week, Stephanie and Karen  are joined by some past guest hosts (Mark Bellamy, John Ullyatt and Jan Alexandra Smith) to play the scammiest game there is: ABSOLUTE BALDERDASH.

    Here is how you play the game: One player reads out a  word/date/name to the others. They each write down a made-up, but believable definition/event/description and hand it to the person who read the  word/date/name. This person then reads out the REAL answer and all the made-up answers, in random order. The others must guess which is actually correct.

    Sperple Omnes!

    Awash in Seedlings!

    Hold Music!

    Penmanshit!



    Here are some things to help this episode make sense:

    Balderdash

    The Mysterious Mr. Wong

    Alvin Purple!
