In this bonus for CAFE Insiders, Elie Honig and Safeena Mecklai take listeners behind the scenes of the second episode of Up Against the Mob. They discuss the qualities that make Murray Richman a superior defense attorney, the head-to-head battle between Richman and Elie at trial years ago, and why Richman is disenchanted with the criminal justice system.
