I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

Gambling With an Edge - Mickey Crimm

Bob and Richard interview a free-spirit gambling loner, Mickey Crimm. Mickey spends about half the year in Montana chasing down various types of progressives, and spends the rest of the year traveling through about 20 states knocking off various promotions.

Mickey also shared some of his experiences of when he used to hop the freight trains to get from place to place.
