About Sin City Stories

Since its founding on May 15, 1905, Las Vegas has gone from being a small railway stop in the middle of the Mojave Desert to a glittering oasis of gambling, shopping, fine dining, and entertainment, welcoming millions of visitors every year.  Over that relatively short history, the city has been witness to some amazing events and that's what Sin City Stories is all about; taking deep dives into those stories & sharing them in an incredibly creative way.

The podcast is narrated & produced by Jeff Walker, a Canadian who frequently visits Las Vegas, exploring both on and off-strip areas, and who has a deep fascination for & appreciation of Las Vegas history.

About Mayhem In The Desert

Mayhem In The Desert is researched & written by Meagan & Anthony Smith, born-and-raised Las Vegans who grew up listening to their relatives recount the famous crimes that helped define the city, as well as the influence of organized crime they witnessed during their day-to-day lives during the 1960's & 1970's.

In October 2019, Meagan & Anthony, who are also long-time true crime fans, decided to bring these stories to life by creating a website to tell the tales of the darker side of Sin City and explore how these often-forgotten stories shaped the history of Las Vegas.

When not researching & writing Mayhem In The Desert, Meagan works on varied art projects and Anthony works as an attorney.
