I was watching that day with friends, studying the program. I said to the room, 'Giacomo. There's your Derby winner.' I bet on him, and he won at 50 to 1." Best book you've read over the past year? "Timothy Denevi wrote a book called Freak Kingdom about Hunter S. Thompson's coverage of the Nixon campaign and Watergate. He does a great job of describing what it was about Nixon that obsessed Thompson — the threat of fascism Nixon represented — and makes a compelling case for similarities between those times and our own." Biggest regret? "Not mining Bitcoin early on. I thought that was the dumbest thing I'd ever heard of." What interested you as a kid? "How things work. I broke so many toys taking them apart." Something unexpected you love in Louisville? "The Falls of the Ohio. That's such a significant place, geologically and historically. And I think now we have no idea how visually awesome it would have been before the falls were dammed." Where do you go to be alone? "My car, preferably on an open stretch of interstate. It's like my isolation chamber." Favorite possession? "When I was a sophomore in high school, my parents bought me a fantastic trumpet: a Bach Stradivarius. I occasionally take it out and play tunes from My Fair Lady." What Louisville dish have you eaten more than any other? "Derby Pie. Unless Bourbon is a dish." What should every person try once? "Moonshine."
