    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.

paddy pop ,

Speed-talking not good.

Taking too fast ruins the effect of good information.

JStanton617 ,

Elie Honig

Preet’s great, but this Elie Honig episode is awful. Not a voice for podcasts, but more than that, the absolute wrong guy to be interviewing the subjects. Too excited, too much fake energy.

A UK fan ,

Ian Bremmer

An armchair critic who has not lived in Afghanistan for a prolonged period and therefore is by no means giving an expert opinion.

The british invaded and lost 3 times!! The russians invaded and left in a humiliating defeat and WARNED Bush not to do it. You need legitimate guests on your programme who really know the status of this country but this person was appaullingly bad - totally opinionated with no real experience.
