Dialed In

One of my favorite podcasts, Reply All, dove deep this month on a trend I’m all too aware of: misdials of phone numbers. VRS interpreters may recognize the audio from the robocalls, and the story behind the ones Emmanuel Dzotsi reports on in this episode, America’s Hottest Talk Line, is fascinating.

For other interesting robocalls and common scams, see Alex Goldman’s reporting on Long Distance Part I and Part II, and it’s subsequent follow-up from this summer.
