Curated content and comedic viewpoints on Society, Politics, Entertainment & Las Vegas!

Jamey and John discuss the pornography industry in Las Vegas…it’s successes and failures and the sacrifices being made to stay relevant.  Also looked at are the tech influences to porn including VR Porn Platforms.  Also on the show a review of the upcoming Cinemacon conference and a return to a fan favorite…Area 52.

Las Vegas has always been a city that has redefined itself as needed and as trends washed across the landscape of leisure travel.  The most famous advertising campaign to come out of the city of neon is, of course, “What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas”.  Now, the aforementioned statement was perfect for the time frame in which it was released but, with the information age kicking into high gear, it was quickly found that what happens in Vegas is usually available to the global community only minutes after. The information however is often skewed to meet the needs of the information conduit or out in out changed into an arguable falsehood to serve as click bate.  This is very often the case as it regards pornography in Las Vegas.  As we discuss in this weeks podcast, Las Vega get a bad rap when it comes to pornography and is many times listed as the epicenter of that particular industry.  Join us for the full discussion of this topic including mentions of the classic porn titles like the classic “Deep Throat” and “The Devil and Miss Jones” and the real relationship porn has with Las Vegas.

Also included in this episode is a discussion of the upcoming CinemaCon conference and how it brings Hollywood to the Vegas crowds…including a look at the release information of James Cameron’s Avatar franchise.

Curated content and comedic viewpoints on Society, Politics, Entertainment & Las Vegas!

Jamey and John discuss some of their favorite Las Vegas movies and some of the hard data behind the marijuana business in Las Vegas.

Well…weed is here to stay…or so says Rolling Stone Magazine in a recent article.  Much to my chagrin, I have to agree.  Although our feckless leaders on the Hill continue the fight the good fight against the now mighty Cannabis Flower.  This week The Pod Bay Door crew discusses the coming wave of legal battles with the Fed and the possibility of the first Pot Lounges in both Colorado and Las Vegas.  We also discuss dogma,tone and fervor with which the pot arguments are laid and the subsequent poor and misrepresentation it has within the “For Pot Community”, most especially the stigma and ensuing embarrassment shown by those who strongly favor the drug.

Also covered in this episode are some of the favorite Las Vegas based films enjoyed by the show…
