While the Fyre Festival proves you can't buy common sense, but you can put a price on ignorance, Rich and Marcus use this week in viral events to try to figure out how a few Instagram models and an admittedly well-produced marketing video scammed hundreds of people out of thousands of dollars. Further, in an attempt to go platinum with no guest features, we bring back the Money Minute and This Week in Work segments this week. Finally, the hostest with the mostest wrap-up with a listener question on a career problem we wish we faced ourselves, "is it ok to take a break between jobs?"
