FOF #2883 – Ben Widdicombe: How I Helped the Rich become Famous and Ruin the World

For much of history, the rich and powerful avoided the limelight because they knew once everyone knows your name and how rotten you are, the guillotine comes next.

But then, something changed- “Keep my name out of your mouth” became “fake it til you make it” and fame and power became the ultimate goal. The rich hired publicists to capitalize on their image and now celebrity culture is another tool to keep terrible people in power.

How did we get here?

Today, gossip reporter Ben Widdicombe, joins us to talk about how celebrity culture is destroying everything, which he details in his new book: “Gatecrasher: How I Helped the Rich Become Famous and Ruin the World.”
