Episode 94 – Impostors

Call them the Great Pretenders; some people try to become someone else because they are pulling a con; others do it as a joke, or for reasons that no one can imagine. But one thing is for sure: these people’s fake lives are probably way more interesting than your real life.

This week we’re talking about some of the biggest impostors, both real and fictional. There’s a good chance that Jeff is back to judging while Richard and Michael are debating, but really, can you be too sure?
