Alex interviews former Columbus Dispatch reporter Kathy Gray about Ohio's most famous treasure hunter, Tommy Thompson. We discuss how the California Gold Rush transformed America, the tragic sinking of the "Ship of Gold" the SS Central America in 1857 and Tommy Thompson's quest to find North America's largest sunken treasure. Alex and Kathy discuss the finding and recovery of the gold and the many investors who pay for Tommy's expeditions. We also look at the downward spiral of Tommy's life, why is he still in jail and we ask where is the gold?
