Where can I get a copy of Games of chance story from NPR a while ago?


I remember you did a story about you took $20 to Coney Island and lost it before getting into the park.  I seem to remember your main take away was you learn the life lessons that you could be taken and how important that was.  I’ve been having a devil of a time trying to find a copy of the story or the audio file, can you help me?

Please and thank you!

Might be in the book Fish Whistle, might be in the book Chicago Days, Hoboken Nights, might be in the book Hoboken Fish and Chicago Whistle, or possibly not to be found anywhere. BTW it was Riverview Park in Chicago and not Coney Island.
