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.
