What a Creep

Season 4, Episode 2

Lou Pearlman

Hello everyone!

This week we talk about notorious boy band creator (and major fraudster) Lou Pearlman who went from dreaming about running his own blimp company to managing some of the biggest boy bands in history to spending his last years in jail. This guy is a MAJOR creep but trust us, you can still enjoy your Backstreet Boys & NSYNC when you are done listening to this ep!

Then we talk about a singer/songwriter/actor/philanthropist who belongs to the illustrious “EGOT” squad (winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar & a TONY award!)
