Our guests this week are Anthony Curtis, and Frank B. about the Houston Astro mega-fan who needed to get more than $10 million bet on the Houston Astros to win the World Series for insurance purposes. Note that we had originally scheduled Buddy Frank for this slot. We have that interview safe and sound, but it has been postponed until November 21.
