Who Is Tana Mongeau?

Over the last few years, Tana Mongeau has become one of the most well-known YouTubers on the platform. She has 5.39 million subscribers on the channel and blew up due to her "story time" videos.

Five years ago, her career took a turn after she failed to launch an online creator convention to rival VidCon called Tanacon. Some critics likened it to the disastrous Fyre Festival.

The event was a failure and was shut down a mere six hours after it started due to overcrowding.

Now, several years after that, Mongeau is trying to clean up her act. She started a podcast with fellow social media star Brooke Schofield called 'CANCELLED with Tana Mongeau.'

Now, the duo is setting out on a cross-country tour for their podcast.



Fans will be able to get up close and personal for an uncut live version of their podcast.

"CANCELLED LIVE will not only continue to spill all the tea that you see on their podcast each week, but it will be with no cuts, no bleeping out names… they’ll probably cancel themselves a time or two by saying all the things that they can’t say online. "

When & Where Is the Show?

The podcast tour kicks off February 20th in New Orleans and is set to wrap up in June in San Fransisco. There will be multiple Midwest stops with one of them being in Cedar Rapids.

When Mongeau and Shofield make their stop in Cedar Rapids, the duo will be doing their live show at the Paramount Theater on Wednesday, April 24th at 7:30 PM.

You can purchase tickets at the official CREventsLive website here.

Unfortunately, fans who were interested in meeting these influencers are out of luck. The meet and greet passes for the event have already sold out.

Roseanne Barr Abandoned Iowa Mansion in Eldon, IA

I fell into a rabbit hole when I found out that Roseanne Barr almost had a mansion in Iowa. After seeing the current state of the property on Facebook, I was amazed that such an extravagant project could be so quickly overtaken by nature. Only two hours away from Waterloo, this abandoned field could have hosted some of the coolest and elite Hollywood parties in the Midwest. The current photos were taken by Gable Fry on a recent trip he took.
