SPECIAL: Steve On KNPR On Eureka, NV
The economy might seem mired in recession in Southern Nevada but elsewhere the sick economy is creating a boom - the gold-mining counties have little or no unemployment, construction work for those who want it and the good times are rolling. This counter-cyclical boom is the other side of the bubble that burst in 2008. Steve Friess has been up in Eureka County to experience first hand what is happening with the healthiest part of our state economy.
If it weren't for the theme song
Love this podcast-best Vegas discussions there are. This podcast has been so wonderful. Much love to the hosts while at school.
Real old school research makes Steve give great interview. Everyone seems to give more to him than any other interviewer I've heard; from Mac King to Steve Wynn who seems to have a love/ like relationship with him and seems to answer every question.
Even crusty Doyle B seemed to open up more than anyones ever heard him speak before. As for the Tony Curtis interviews, wow.
I visit Vegas at least 3 times a year and use the tips as and when I can.
Keep it up.
For Vegas Lovers
If you love Vegas you have to listen to this show.
Even if you are not a Vegas fan there is something for everybody.
It is fantastic.
