Ep. 61 - Vegas Cheating

It's time to talk Vegas! No, really, it's right there in the name of the show. So much to talk about, too. We were on KNPR, so you're going to hear some of that interview. Then, we delve into tons of Las Vegas and a listicle of the week (learn more about dice security measures than you ever wanted to know). We chat with an actual woman, and Genaro of Carlos'n Charlie's fame. It's a rolicking good time, if that's a thing.
