Oh My Fraud

Greg and Caleb have presented many ethics webinars together over the years, and much of the content is inspired by the research and writing of world-renowned professor Dan Ariely. Recent scrutiny has raised serious questions about Ariely’s work, however, so the guys discuss the circumstances and the fallout.

What is Oh My Fraud?

"Oh My Fraud" is an irreverent podcast from CPA/comedian Greg Kyte and blogger/former CPA Caleb Newquist.

The two come together to unpack their favorite frauds and explore the circumstances, psychology, and interpersonal dynamics involved. They also fully indulge in victim-blaming the defrauded widows, orphans, infirm and feeble-minded—because who can resist?

If you fancy yourself a trusted advisor—or prefer your true crime with spreadsheets instead of corpses—listen to this show to learn what to watch out for to keep your clients, your firm, and even yourself safe.
