Cafe Studios presents Doing Justice, hosted by Preet Bharara. Justice is about doing the right thing, in the right way, for the right reasons. And it's about making sure that no one is above the law. Doing Justice is CAFE's new narrative podcast, based on host Preet Bharara's bestselling book. In each episode Preet explores the key elements of a case from the unique perspective of the prosecutor whose job it is to grapple with urgent moral and legal questions. Should we allow an elected official to run for re-election while he’s under investigation? Can we prosecute a police officer for planning to kidnap his victims? Preet is the host of the hit podcast Stay Tuned and is the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. It is not always clear how justice works, and he is the perfect person to take us through each investigation, unravel a mystery, and ultimately show us how things can be made right again.

    Up Against the Mob: The Cooperator

    Up Against the Mob: The Cooperator

    Up Against the Mob is CAFE’s new six-episode series, hosted by former prosecutor Elie Honig, that lifts the veil on the world of the mafia and law enforcement’s efforts to bring mobsters to justice. 

    Episode 1 tells the story of Michael Visconti. Once a rising star in the Genovese crime family, Visconti decided to leave the mafia and become a cooperating government witness. Visconti opens up to Elie Honig about his life and rise in the mob — how he first got mixed up with the mafia, the violent crimes he committed, and his decision to flip against his mob “family.”  

    In the bonus episode for CAFE Insiders, Elie Honig and Safeena Mecklai take listeners behind the scenes of the first episode of Up Against the Mob. Become an Insider at cafe.com/Insider and enter code MOB for 50% off the annual membership price.

Fascinating episodes

Looking in hindsight, these analyses are truly helpful in understanding what the law is supposed to do. It’s gotten so convoluted, it seems, and subject to tricks, performance, foppish disgusting behavior.

I can only hope that Preet et al. will present the fall of tRUmp, the kids, Barr, Stone, Flynn, Bannon, and the GOP in similar future episodes.

Keep your political views to yourself

Didn’t appreciate blaming former President for “Asian Hare Crimes” in episode 2 and will not be listening.
