Days 4 & 5: Cedar Rapids - Dubuque - Waterloo - Kansas City

Family! Casinos! Music! KWWL!

We started the morning with an interview of Shauna's sister, Jessica, and her niece, Kaylea, who was given a part of Shauna's name. She's also been called punky, piglet, kiki, and lovey.

Then on to Dubuque, IA, to interview dealers and managers at the Diamond Jo Casino to get their thoughts on luck.

While there, we also interviewed Shauna's brother, Ross, at the Dubuque Star brewery and bought some squeaky cheese curds. Made a brief foray into Wisconsin to just touch soil.

Drive back to Cedar Rapids to meet with local businessman and city booster, John Schnipkoweit, at a meet-up at Parlor City in an emerging Cedar Rapids neighborhood called NewBo.


Next day in Cedar Rapids, trying to get local ABC affiliate KCRG to meet with us. No luck. We then met with local film genius and social entrepreneur Andy Stoll to discuss movie options. And took in the CR sights some.


Then on to Waterloo for an interview with KWWL before heading to a party at Francy Pants in Des Moines, IA, which hosted a party for the movie crew to meet fans there. Then on to Kansas City for the night and a few crazy interviews there. More on that tonight!
