Michigan Native Behind The Dream Podcast Talks Multilevel Marketing Schemes And Season Two


There are whole business models built on recruiting others to sell products to their friends and families, and then recruiting even more people to sell those products. 

But, the difference between multilevel marketing and pyramid schemes can often be a gray area according to Jane Marie, the Owosso, Michigan native and This American Life alumna behind the popular podcast The Dream. She joined WKAR's Mary Ellen Pitney in studio to talk about the MLM's from her childhood in Michigan that partially inspired the series and the premiere of season two.
