The Real Bodies attraction recently opened at Bally's Las Vegas, and we wrangled Tom Zaller, President and CEO of Imagine Exhibitions, for a walk-through.

This week is one of our biggest episodes, ever!

We've got an interview with a Las Vegas legend, Pete "Big Elvis" Vallee, whose heart is as big as his talent.

We also talk "Jason Bourne," one of the worst movies of the year despite all the hype about its Las Vegas chase.

It's the final episode of the first season of the Vital Vegas podcast (finally!).

In this week's yawnfest, we share the fallout of our recent story about MGM Resorts cutting back on its standard cocktail pours. The company responds, and we respond to their response. Good times.

There's also a bit of Vegas history you won't want to miss. On June 8, 1956, the Silver Palace opened. Now, it's Mermaid's. Also closing. More good times!

Think of this episode as an escape from all the crappy things going on in the world. You know, like rum, but in podcast form.

This week's listicle is 10 Cheapskate Las Vegas Keepsakes. Say that five times fast.
