Ep. 19 – Dr. David Schwartz

Jonathan and Gary take a deep dive into Las Vegas history with Dr. David Schwartz of UNLV, who’s focused most of his academic career on the history and psychology of gaming. Dave shares stories from his new book “At the Sands,” including those weeks in the winter of 1960 when The Rat Pack performed by night and shot “Ocean’s Eleven” by day.

There’s also the tale of Carl Cohen – the Sands executive who was regarded as a great boss, but who’s infamous as the man who slugged Frank Sinatra!
