The Glow-Up: Special Episode with Iris Chang
Today’s a special end-of-year episode: My good friend Iris Chang is joining me for a catch-up for what we decided to call The Glow-Up Episode. Iris is the first person to ever work with me behind the scenes of QTTF, and also the person that actually started this podcast with me over 2 years back – time flies.. Iris works in festival ticketing, and we chat about event safety and crowd management, as well what a day in the life looks like behind the scenes of big festivals. Iris has really worked their way up in very little time, and if you’re interested in working in the festival world – this one’s for you!
See ya in the new year, thanks for listening!
