George Knapp presides over an evening of true crime stories, beginning with investigative journalist, Doug Swanson, in the first hour, for a discussion on the astonishing tale of Benny Binion—a rip-roaring saga of murder, money, and the making of Las Vegas. In the second hour, Stapleton Grey, the son of a Mafia hit man and a Bible-thumping, scripture-quoting Southern Baptist mother, will discuss growing up in a family of crime and Jesus, while shadowed by the FBI and mercenaries.

In the latter half of the program, Bill Friedman, author and researcher of mafia casino crimes, will discuss the true story of America’s most infamous gangsters. Based on exhaustive documented research, he chronicles the true history of illegal gambling, rum-running, organized crime, and the politics of law enforcement during the Prohibition era.

last show recap

George Knapp will be joined in the first half by author and PR expert Maggie Jessup for a discussion on the rise in our fascination with celebrity culture. In the latter half, Beatles scholar Chuck Gunderson will explore the FBI's hidden and secretive investigation into the Fab Four and why the FBI cares so much about celebrities, as well as if there is an agenda at work aimed at keeping the public obsessed with stars rather than what's really going on in the world around them.
