Hacking the System is a cheat sheet to getting ahead in every aspect of life. For 15 years, host Brian Brushwood has made a career out of social manipulation and thinking like a criminal – performing incredible tricks and mastering harrowing stunts as a magician.  He knows the tools of scientists and spies, crooks and con artists, and is using his encyclopaedia of secret knowledge to help you get the upper hand…legally.  Brian demonstrates how to hack household objects in unheard of ways to help you survive, reveal how to avoid people who cheat the system, and show legal tips, tricks, and shortcuts to get ahead in life - one helpful hack at a time.
