Hey, is your phone ringing? Well, don’t answer it, because Tom and Jenny are about to tell you two horrifying sagas of so-called “prank” calls gone horrifically wrong. First, we’ll be delving into the “strip search phone call scam,” where some miscreant called dozens of fast food restaurants and grocery stores in 30 US states and got employees to do terrible things, up to and including sexual assault. Then we’ll talk about the collection of assclowns known as PrankNet, who did much the same thing, with likewise outrageous (and criminal) results. We round up the show with a short discussion of psychological studies of obedience, including the famed Milgram experiments and Solomon Asch’s studies in conformity, to try to break down why callers sometimes follow disembodied instructions from a purported authority figure. Turn off your cell and prepare to say NO to the man, it’s time for episode 160.
