The Hollywood Read ep. 12

THR LogoNetflix and Hulu each released a documentary about the catastrophe that was Fyre Fest in the same week, giving us a very good look into the con that fell apart in part due to the incessant social media posting of the very influencers meant to bolster the event. This week, we take a look at Fyre Fest, social media influencers, sponsored content, and the nightmare world we live in where there are no more hobbies, only side hustle. We get into online plagiarism, the Fuck FuckJerry movement, con men, and the inevitable robot takeover of human industry. Join us as we stave off despair on the frontier of social media influencer culture.
