Show Notes

Happy (belated) National Pig Day! This year we are celebrating by joining our friend Taryn, Manager at Ironwood Pig Sanctuary, to learn all about these fun loving creatures! 
We hope to spread awareness about the plight of pet pigs who, like other companion animals, end up in rescues when unprepared owners purchase them from feed stores or breeders who give improper information. 
If you, or anyone you know, has ever considered adding a pet pig to your family, listen to this podcast first!

Americans are used to being on the lookout for a scam, but authorities are warning of a new kind of fraud. Puppy Kingpin shines a spotlight on Jolyn Noethe, a secretive businesswoman from Iowa who is accused of laundering puppies much like drug money. Investigative reporter Alex Schuman exposes the scheme and an underground part of the industry bringing us the pets we love.

From Neon Hum Media and Sony Music Entertainment. Smoke Screen: Puppy Kingpin is available June 16th.
