Five Hundy by Midnight, the Original Las Vegas Podcast, is the first podcast devoted (almost) exclusively to Las Vegas and the longest-running travel podcast. Weekly since Jan. 9, 2005, Five Hundy by Midnight has provided listeners with news, reviews and commentary by Las Vegas tourists for Las Vegas tourists. The podcast has attracted local and national press, including mentions in the New York Times and Boston Globe, and a feature article in the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Five Hundy by Midnight was voted Best Las Vegas Podcast in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 by the readers of Vegas Tripping. In 2012, Five Hundy was inducted into the Trippies Hall of Fame. Eligible again in 2013, readers voted for Five Hundy for the sixth time.
About the Hosts
Having visited Las Vegas more than 50 times since 1997, Tim Dressen began producing and hosting Five Hundy by Midnight as an outlet for his Vegas obsession. After recording a couple dozen episodes on his own, Tim invited his wife (and fellow Las Vegas aficionado), Michele, to join Five Hundy by Midnight as the show’s co-host. Since then, listeners have been treated to a weekly dose of their charming banter about Las Vegas hotels, casinos, restaurants, bars and just about anything else Vegas-related.

Answers to a Few Common Questions
- Will you include a link to my blog/message board/Web site/podcast on your site? Probably not. The sites we link to under Friends of Five Hundy are sites put together by friends and acquaintances who have been supportive of the podcast. Please don’t leave blog comments that are simply plugs for your site either. They’ll get deleted as soon as we see them.
- Why didn’t you play my voice mail message on the show? We use most of the messages we receive. However, occasionally we’ll skip some because the sound quality is horrible, the message is really long, the call has little to do with anything related to Las Vegas or the podcast, or you’ve already called a bunch of times recently.
