EP. 207 — The Govt. Horse Hustler w/ Adam Conover

What’s poppin’ Con-gregration? This week, we have comedian Adam Conover giving us an update on the WGA/SAG strike. We also discuss Rita Crundwell, who drained tens of millions of dollars from the rural city of Dixon, Illinois to spend money on hundreds of luxury horses. Plus, find out how the DEA accidentally sent $55,000 in crypto it had seized to a cryptocurrency scammer. Stay Schemin’!
