In the new podcast “Deep Cover-The Real Donnie Brasco,” Joe Pistone shares the true stories of his time with The Mob to his friend, and our host, actor Leo Rossi. If you loved the Sopranos--“Fuhggedaboutit”--this is The Real Donnie Brasco.

clfn1985 ,

Trash host.

I get Rossi wants to make sure things are explained properly , so the general public knows what really happened, but Rossi sure has some dumb questions . He can’t be that uneducated on these things can he?
