On Sunday, July 1, 2018, I had the pleasure of participating in the 6th Annual Philly Podcast Festival. This was my second year in the festival and my second time back at the best bar in Philly, Tattooed Moms on South Street. Since I was in South Philly I wanted to share a story from the neighborhood and I chose the story of Joey Coyle, a 28 year old South Philly boy who in February, 1981, had the misfortune of finding $1.2 million on the side of the road.
What would you do if you found one million dollars? Would you keep it, share it, turn it in? Would you wait for a reward? On the surface it sounds like that sort of a windfall would make all your dreams come true. But for Joey Coyle, in 6 days he went from rags to riches to rags again, and landed himself in jail in the process.
