Episode 329: Nice Work If You Can Get It

“…one of the biggest things that helped me was my intimate understanding of the mind of a gambler…I knew just who this cat was, I’d been that guy and I would like to think that maybe I was a little bit better than scratch tickets in the airport, but I don’t know that scratch tickets in the airport are that much classier than video poker machines in the strip clubs of Oregon…I think it was my secret weapon…I knew I was a lottery winner, I just never bought a ticket.”   Listen to the Interview here…
