Episode 13 - As Good As A Wink

Dear Hollywood -

How have you not made a biopic of Jimmy Winkfield? Do you not see the tragedy and epic journey of a man who worked his way to the top again and again only to find himself back at the bottom each time? Are you failing to comprehend the scope of his life? Are you allergic to money? What is it about him that keeps his story from being told on the biggest screen imaginable?

There is ever more to the story of Wink that didn't fit into a seven-minute podcast, but his life is equal parts heartbreaking and triumphant. He was probably the best, but they couldn't just let him be.
