Gooned with Emma Lehman is a chilling exploration of the Troubled Teen Industry’s dark corners. In just half an hour per episode, Lehman, a journalist with a creative streak, introduces us to the unsettling world of educational consultants who exploit parental fears. The first episode reveals the manipulative strategies for pushing teens into these programs. The follow-up episode is even more harrowing, as Lehman, posing as a desperate parent, uncovers the shocking ease of hiring “goons” for child extraction. The opening episodes promise compelling yet harsh content to follow, an eye-opener on a shadowy business preying on family vulnerabilities.
