Poker Face

By the early 2000's, Juan Carlos was a man on a mission... and one of his favourite places to 'work' was Las Vegas. In this episode Darrell follows the breadcrumbs of Juan's life to the city that never sleeps, meets an ex-detective just as determined to find some answers, and hears about an audacious robbery ripped straight from the pages of a Hollywood Blockbuster. And perhaps - while we're in Vegas - we might even catch a glimpse of the man himself... Follow Con Juan only on Wondery+.
