The first thing my wife and I did upon our arrival in Chicago for the ANA's World's Fair of Money was to find the room that in a mere 24 hours I'd give my Money Talks presentation. Room #6 was a 30-foot by 41-foot conference room with a large and elaborate chandelier in the center. Against the length of the room near the wall were two long tables separated by a podium. About fifteen feet to the right of the podium (presenter's left) was a large movie screen. In front of the podium there were roughly 75 chairs arranged in rows with a center aisle. We were both generally impressed with the room and if I thought about it I might have been a little overwhelmed. However, with lots to see and do at the World's Fair of Money it never occurred to me.
As a result of my Money Talks presentation at the Words Fair of Money I came into contact with Coin World writer Chris Bulfinch. Chris wanted to talk with me about an article he was working on concerning Laura Gardin Fraser. At the end of that conversation he asked me if I would be willing to do a podcast interview with him of which I was only too happy to do.
