EP177: Dark Patterns and Tourism (w/ Fred Roeder)

Consumer Choice Podcast

23-06-2023 • 45 mins

This week's theme is Dark! Whether that be "dark patterns," as the FTC describes Amazon's Prime subscription, dark Canadian legislation, or dark tourism in the hills of Turkmenistan.

We look at the FTC's lawsuit against Amazon Prime for being too affordable and convenient, Canada's C-18 news bill laden with cronyism, and check in with our travel correspondent, Fred Roeder, managing director of the Consumer Choice Center, on his trip to the Central Asian diamond nation of Turkmenistan.
