Fascinating story of friendship and betrayal!

Look, honestly, i didn't think I was going to like this podcast. I'm really not into basketball or college sports, but this is bigger. This is a story of friendship and betrayal. AND Henry Hill and the mob. I'm hooked!

When the mob bought college basketball

An intriguing behind-the-scenes exploration of the Boston College point-shaving scandal by the guy who literally wrote the book on it. Insider interviews with players and ‘GoodFellas’ make this podcast especially riveting.
