What’s Poppin’ Con-gregation? This week, comedian Jamie Loftus joins the show to discuss John Wojtowicz, a con man who made international headlines after robbing a bank and creating a hostage situation “for love.” His story inspired the Academy Award Winning film “Dog Day Afternoon” starring Al Pacino. Plus, a California Instagram “momfluencer” was sentenced to 90 days in prison after falsely reporting that a couple had attempted to kidnap her two children. Stay Schemin’!
