Have you ever unintentionally gone in deep?


PBS NewsHour posted an interview with Alex Goldman, host of the "Reply All" podcast. After Goldman received a spam call claiming that he needed tech support software, Goldman decided to start asking questions to see how much information the caller would give up about his company. Goldman originally intended to "blow off some steam" and mess with a scam artist. Instead, Goldman uncovered a seedy enterprise in which the callers are conned into becoming phone scammers. The PBS NewsHour interview is attached. On Thursday, the "Reply All" podcast will air Goldman's trip to India to meet one of the callers.

It's fascinating to me that a few questions could take a podcaster half-way around the world. Have any of you tried to scratch the surface of a problem, only to learn that there is so much more to investigate? Log in and leave your answers in the comments.
