The New Gurus

The New Gurus

An excellent new podcast series by the BBC on the rise of online gurus. No matter what you’re drawn to — how to be healthier, how to be more productive, how to get rich — you’ll find someone ready to provide recipes for success. And these gurus are drawing huge audiences, not least by pitting themselves against whatever they perceive as the mainstream.
