    Episode 149: Eric Foss - 11 Years In Prison With The Mob

    Episode 149: Eric Foss - 11 Years In Prison With The Mob

    I recently spoke with an individual from Baltimore named Eric Foss. In the early 2000's, the government alleges that Eric was involved in a wide scale drug network. He did over a decade in the FEDS. Along the way he came into contact with many mobsters including Jimmy Coonan, Mark Reiter, Vito Guzzo, Norman Dupont and more. We talked about his experiences, release and then ultimately another federal arrest.

Great show it would be interesting to see more episodes about terrorists and serial killers

Roland the headless ,

Episode #150

Do your research… “ the Quran doesn’t say anything about killing people in it” . It literally says the trees and stones will give up the Jews hiding behind them so they can be killed by Muslim soldiers of God. Please do not say things as fact when you obviously haven’t done any research. You are better than that and your job description should include research.
