Show is UP: What Rimes With Badu

This week's show is now available. The link on TheStripPodcast.Com will be fixed later today, but this is correct:

May 22: Leann Rimes and Erykah Badu

We’re getting a little bit country, a little bit soul this week with interviews with two very different artists. First, former teen prodigy LeAnn Rimes is all grown up and writing her own music these days, some of it offering a window into what it was like to transition from teen phenom to married lady. Then, Erykah Badu, the R&B star often likened to Billie Holliday, is back after a five-year break with three – yes, three – new albums this year. She’ll explain how Apple’s Garageband kicked off that spate. Also, the winner of our Jersey Boys tickets giveaway is revealed!

In Banter: Playing the Criss Angel Red Carpet audio, a weird country song, Aria is named, Jubilee is old and a peek at Fontainbleau.

Interesting tip, but there are actually several of those Brazilian all-you-can eat meat places on the Strip. I've tried the one in the P Ho shops, and it is excellent (called Pampas). Think there's one at the Mirage too. These locations are probably more acessible for tourists.
