Lost and Found: Las Vegas – Come on a journey-of-the-mind to Las Vegas, a city that can cater to your every hedonistic desire. How did such a unique city come about? An oasis in the middle of the desert, it was a pitstop to feed and water horses on the way to California. Soon, Las Vegas would be the site of a gangster fuelled entertainment economy, a tourism hotspot and a site to observe nuclear testing from the rooftop of your hotel. Today, Las Vegas continues to attract people from all over the world and those who work in its industries are part of a thriving, intimate arts community. Guests: Michael Green, Associate Professor of History at the University of Nevada; Jennifer Burkart and Ryan Reason, co-founders and directors of photography studio Square Shooting (@SquareShooting).
