MickyMan Riley Shepard’s Encyclopedia of Folk Music (6) Folklore: Shepard's 'Encyc.Of Folk Musc on Podcast 16 Jan 19

On January 9th, the "Hidden Brain" podcast did a story on Riley Shepard, musician, producer, and the compiler of an "Encyclopedia Of Folk Music", which he used to fraudulently illicit money from multiple backers.   He was a con artist for sure, but the podcast ends by painting him as a possible "genius" for his scholarship.
   Does anybody have more information on him or his work, or have any opinions about the podcast?
