The Fall of Fyre Festival

The Fall of Fyre Festival

On this week’s episode, Kam interviews his guests on their Hadhrami heritage, the descendants of Yemeni people who migrated to Malaysia. Next, Rahmah shares how studies have proven that people indirectly and directly change their habits according to the lunar calendar, including their spending and investing practices. Lastly, Zalfian explains how back in 2017, a CEO and his partner in crime managed to scam people into spending thousands of dollars on a disastrous Fyre music festival, simply by paying social media influencers to post a viral promo video.
