EP. 237 — The Wonka Experience & TanaCon w/ Josh Gondelman

What’s Poppin’ Con-gregation? This week, Josh Gondelman joins the show to discuss the cons for conferences. First, we discuss the ridiculously underwhelming Wonka experience in Glasgow, Scotland followed by the unorganized beauty conference TanaCon hosted by YouTube beauty influencer, Tana Mongeau in Anaheim, CA in 2018. Stay Schemin’ and let the scam find you!
