Vital Vegas Podcast, Ep. 74: Rumors, Reflection and Copious Humbuggery

It’s the podcast that’s been described as “unlistenable,” frequently and very recently.

In this episode, we shovel all the latest Las Vegas scoop against the advice of our team of lawyers.

There you’ve got your SLS sale. There you’ve got your Hard Rock sale. There you’ve got your Gwen Stefani residency, your Lucky Dragon bankruptcy and your Las Vegas Walk of Stars disintegration.

SLS Las Vegas

The SLS sale is finally going through, and we call dibs on a vest.

Learn more about the comp drink monitoring system on the casino floor at Westgate, and get the latest about plans for the El Portal and more.

As a special bonus, prospector and part-time marshal Pappy provides his thoughts about Wynn Resorts CEO Matt Maddox claiming he knew nothing about the sexual misbehavior allegations about Steve Wynn.


If you don’t listen to this podcast, you’ll break the heart of a noted frontiersman and penny crusher. Long story.

It’s the one Las Vegas podcast you can live without, and no, we didn’t inadvertently leave a word out of this sentence.

    I’ll give the reviewer a thumbs up for the news cast items, Scott has become a slight media whore lately. No worse than most of the other internet bloggers. I get it though, its like high school when you manage to be dating someone way more attractive than you. You want everyone to know. Now on to what the reviewer thinks is a good podcast is laughable, Five Hundy jumped the shark years ago, Tim and Michelle basically read stuff published in paper and beg for money each week, I don’t even listen to more than 3 to 4 minutes of it. Scott your podcast is definitely on the top end of mediocre podcasts. My only gripe is you have no discernible taste in quality pizza. Keep up the average performance and please no phone callers.

      I love Scott’s enthusiasm, knowledge, news and all things we love about over-the top Vegas. I admit I am more entertained by the articles than the podcast, and it’s redundant to read/listen to both, but I give Scott a general thumbs up for the value I get for what I paid.

      But agree with you not only on Scott’s lack of taste in deep dish pizza heaven, but also the continued presence of Pappy. Every time Pappy is drolled out, I am reminded of Lieutenant Steve from “Good Morning, Vietnam”

      Pizza. Pappy. Pabst Blue Ribbon. Bears. Battlestar Galactica.

          You are correct, sir!

          “Ho ho ho… Oh Frenchie!” “Oh Lt. Steve!”

          “Sir, in my heart, I know I’m funny”

    Do the podcast (and blog, and Tweets) that you want to do. You aren’t trying to monetize it, so tough titties to anyone who doesn’t like it. Speaking of lady parts, hope the long-suffering Emre feels better soon. That phlegm *is* sexy, though.

        Scott don’t sweat the blow back. It’s a free podcast. and definitely one of the better blog themed ones. I find it both informative and a great sleep aid on long flights. Looking forward to the season one, part 4 finale almost as much as the next Candace Cameron Bure Hallmark made for TV movie.

    Pappy is a great bit, and its just a bit. Its not consistant, not every episode, not a dominant part of an episode and much better than having a cohost who laughs at the other cohost sstupidity and stammers mindlessly into the microphone, adding little of value. You could give away $10000 every week through your podcast and somebody would complain about why it sucks. True fact.

    I never thought Scott is all that full of himself. He seems humble enough. I think Jesus and Scott would be best buds. Sometimes he does present his opinions like they are federal law, but whatever. He doesn’t force you to agree. He is about as fair as they come. He should run for Senator. I would possibly vote for him, given the opportunity to.

    Kind Heaven will fail just like not so lucky dragon did. If you want Asia go to Singapore not Vegas. As Australian tourists we go to Vegas because we love the USA
