In this bonus for CAFE Insiders, Elie Honig and Safeena Mecklai take listeners behind the scenes of the fifth episode of Up Against the Mob. They discuss why ruthless mobsters are sometimes seen as empathetic figures, the extent to which the wives of mafia figures are culpable for their husbands’ crimes, and what poker can teach us about the criminal mind.
