This week, the Media Mavens team sit down to talk with gambling mogul Stephen A. Crystal, the Founder of SCCG Management.             Founding SCCG back in the early ‘90s, Crystal has worked to make the world of gambling more accessible than ever. Crystal’s first foray into the world of gambling was through his expertise in land use permits, which he used to help instill riverboat casinos in Missouri, one of the first examples of legalized gambling outside of Lasa Vegas and Atlantic City. Now, in a world where gambling is more digital than ever, Crystal’s world has opened up exponentially, and he sees no signs of slowing down. “Within the next 2 or 3 years, you’ll have close to 30 states with some form of legalized sports wagering and/or online casino.”             With the Mavens Team, Crystal discusses the emergence of numerous sports betting apps, the still huge prevalence of illegal gambling (60% of thre gambling population estimated by Crystal) and how companies can bring in new technology to protect their customers.             Listen in to learn about “Rolling the Dice & Innovating the Gambling Industry” and the future of gambling!

Dr. Death

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
