The show is UP: Wynnterview Time

Here's this week's show! Beyond the chat with Mr. Wynn, it's unusual for the fact that Miles is the one offering up a lot of on-the-Strip experiences and views. So enjoy. Oh!

April 4: Wynnterview, The Podcast

It’s become a cliché on this program to say that when our Steve sits down to chat with Steve Wynn, you never quite know what’s going to happen. But it’s a cliché because it’s true, so fasten your seatbelts and get ready for a wild ride as the Steves pick over the Wynn divorce, recent art acquisitions and a spirited political discussion over the economy and health care.

In Banter: Miles – yes, Miles – goes on a Strip bender, the R-J thinks Pink’s is literally BEST, Frank Gehry thinks Excalibur is literally the BEST, Illinois and NJ think Macau is the WORST and much more.

Wonderful show, once again! Wow, Steve Wynn was quite vocal about health care. I'm glad to hear so much passion even if it's horse shit from the right.

The tip of the week was great. I must do it.

If I can, I'll try to be in your audience at the Apple Store if you do a live podcast from there. Vive Apple!

Also, Miles, your French is OK, but you do need some pronunciation help. Quel domage!

Absolutely, positively fascinating podcast. The stuff about his art collection and his divorce was amazingly candid.

His nonsensical wingnuttery political beliefs were a different story. I did like his artful evading of the Sarah Palin question. He must know, in his heart, that she's a dumbass; but he couldn't bring himself to say it.

After all, he might be raising money for her in a year or so. :D

Great stuff, guys.
