Show Notes

September 30th is officially National Puppy Mill Survivor Day thanks to Bailing Out Benji!  For this week's episode, we kick off the very first Puppy Mill Survivor Day by telling the stories of our listeners' puppy mill survivors, as well as some of the ones who have inspired us!  Tune in to listen to our special guest - who might be the (Foster) Mom of one very famous puppy mill survivor!

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.
