Description

It's a city that has defined popular culture. An oasis in the desert, a mirage — it’s a city of buzzing neon, world-class performers, and fortunes made and lost. A city that invites you to explore your deepest desires: a playground for adults replete with casinos, showgirls, and all-you-can-eat buffets. But how did Vegas become “Sin City”? A place that promotes a fantasy of adult freedoms: a vacation from boundaries, rules, accountability? A place where people from all over the world visit to be their wildest, most uninhibited selves, even if it’s just for just a couple nights? We’re going to dive deep into all things Las Vegas. From the genesis of shotgun weddings, to film portrayals of the mob-era, to the social engineering behind mega-casinos...this is Spectacle Season 2: Las Vegas, what Sin City tells us about American culture.
