"City oklahoma in two thousand eighteen for for reasons that are still mysterious. Bolger is sent to the federal prison and burston mills west virginia. And it's a very strange Reason why who sent there. So it's not clear. And then he's put into the general prison population when he's there for. Someone is famous or infamous as whitey bolger to be placed in the general population is very unusual and also on october thirtieth two thousand eighteen. He was martyred in that prison. I think we have a pretty good idea. Who did it our loose. Who has been accused of doing it. As is the case organized crime sharing information with law enforcement is a big. No and whitey had come into contact with a fellow mobster. New he wasn't informant. One of them was a former boston. Area mob hitman. Who was serving a life term freddie. Jesus we're not sure yet of all the details but it's pretty clear. That gs reportedly had a particularly hatred for rats. Were informants and certainly bolger fit that mold. And ultimately he was his body was returned to boston and he was buried z. Monica's church in south boston so where he came from he returned. Phyllis carries author of kevin. Weekes is biography. Had this to say about kathy greg. Bolger's longtime girlfriend. She never believed any of the stories about jim. Bolger being a murderer. She knew he did some bad things. She knew listen to the mob but she never believed. She still doesn't to this day believe that he was really as bad as she honestly wants. Some people have a fascination with gangsters and mobsters somehow can look beyond the murders in the crimes they commit to focus on the charisma the bravado of these individuals or something about the mob that fascinates people without sorta recognizing the the much darker side of what they're looking at others especially those who were victimized by bolger. See him as this horrible murders thug. Who deserved everything. He got plenty of people in boston. Who were victimized by whitey. Bolger who had family members who were killed who were robbed from robbed by him who were hurt by him in one way or another and there are a whole 'nother faction certainly sees him as a rat as an informant which is worse than being a killer in some factions south. Boston in the end bolger will be remembered by some for his crimes and by others for his philanthropy. I think he. He added that psychopath sociopath not a psychologist. I mean i know. He's not Was he normal. Before yet those lsd treatments. I don't know that he eats crime was in his blood. I mean twenty is old. Is that in bakes. I mean this is not a normal person and there were six kids in his family. Six kids in kevin stanley and kevin was the only gangster and his. Jimmy was the only gang starring in his so had people raised by the same family. Detroit out that way. I don't know there to be something really screwed up in an to have done. So many words at there's a lot of different ways that people look wadi bolger. Today is certainly a man of contradictions. And that's one of the things that. I think you see with a lot of these criminals at the stature himself an american patriot while at the same time routinely using murder and threats to make his fortune. He had no trouble killing a person. He was just a cold blooded killer but he couldn't watch his sick dog put down without turning his head and cry. You know. He professed to hate drugs yet. He profited handsomely from drug dealers from extorting drug dealers. He valued loyalty among his peers at the same time. He was providing intelligence to the fbi. The man of contradictions that are most of us could not carry in our brain at the same time and somehow he was. He was able to do that well into his eighties. You know he never had that moment. It appears in prison where he realized that everything he had done was just horrible. It wrong and and you know he was able to justify so much. This has been mafia and audio boom original series hosted by me fleet cooper. This show is produced by audio booms. Lauren vogel.

"Italians. he wanted to take down. The mafia now is a far sexier thing for them to be able to to do so. What that meant was the irish mobsters. Were pretty much ignored or they were used for the by the fbi to get the italian. That's what the final goal but this obsession with taking down one. Specific group of people would turn out to be a waste of time as bolger would often lie and get away with it due to the agency looking the other way. Why would be calling the shots. Not the fbi. He considered himself like a liaison as opposed to being an informant. And that's how it went. Why often would lie reports to the fbi. Certainly was hold all kinds of information just a month. After he agreed with john. Conley to become an informant. He killed two people and claimed that others had done the killings and for his part very sadly you know conley. Look the other way When whitey and see flabby who also was an informant were committing all kinds of horrible crimes or killing people there extorting people all the things they were doing and the fbi would do nothing because what it was focused on. Was you taken down the mafia but everything was about to change when local police finally caught onto bulges dealings. Rightfully leaving the corrupted. Fbi out of the loop on their work. Why did why do you go into hiding. It started with the fact that even though the fbi was protecting the other investigative agencies law enforcement agencies in massachusetts. We're not so willing to protect him. And one of those individuals who really decided to focus on on bolger and steve fleming was a man named tom foley and tom. Foley was in charge of organized.

"I think Robert gave teller his actual idee during ill fated heists. This is great. They're just not making bank robbers like they used really. Whitey Bulger is rolling over in his grave thinking about the other incompetence of the modern day. Bank robber, a Chicago bank robbery suspect gave a teller his state issued ID along with a withdrawn floor way his state issued ideas that anything like a D e B T card. No, I don't. I don't think I think it was his regular driver's license. Why would it say a driver's license? Right? Why is it saying a state issued I D If it's a driver's license? That's also a state issued idea. Is it not? I know it is, but it's It's very imprecise. Mm. And that's a good question. How you can look at just how the police log had documented. This is why you developed sources in the police department. Right, Taylor? Yes. So you could you so you can find out what was really used. Is that a dig at me that I didn't find the source of whether or not it wasn't a BT or an I D? No, I'm just saying Taylor Taylor used to go down to the New Bedford Police Department, just like I used to go down to the Winston Salem Police department and sometimes the Boston Police Department, Ednor Flores 34 entered a PNC Bank and the city's humbled park section. And waited in line before handing a teller A deposit ticket with the words armed and no dye packs. But how we die. What spells? Yeah. Uh, well, you know that. Here's the problem. The Chicago schools have been out for a long time and the teachers, the teachers are still refusing to go back, and this is the kind of the kind of tragedies they're going to occur. Leading the quick, quick witted bank employees to press a silent alarm. The savvy teller then asked Flores, who was wearing a hood in a surgical mask of the time. If he wanted to make a deposit or withdraw the employees then gave floor is a blue withdrawal slip on which he scrawled $10,000 and filled up his account number as 123456789. Before handing it back. Florida's proceeded to give his authentic I D to the teller when asked for he over his temporary state I d card issued by the Illinois secretary of state just days earlier. That's his name. Ednor Flores. Mm hmm. I'm gonna get. It was not a legitimate driver's license under any circumstance. I'm starting to think it might not have been either man covered in.

Los Angeles Dodgers win World Series, but also become super spreaders of the virus?

"They won with a powerful lineup. But did they risk turning the world Siri's into a corona virus super spreader into a super spreader event? It Let's let's talk about the good things for a Shall we then Los Angeles Dodgers win the World Series first time since 1988 and had been a long time coming in a lot of failed a lot of false starts at the beginning of this decade in terms of winning So many division titles and just sputtering in the playoffs, losing to the infamous Houston Astros in the 2017 world, serious getting beaten by the Red Sox in 2018, and this time they were great. They were fantastic. Even Clayton Kershaw that everyone talked about couldn't get the monkey off of his back. He comes out and wins. Two games in the series, and it was great for them. I think that they they did it the way that great teams are supposed to. They scored more than half of their runs with two outs. Everyone's looking for all that clutch. All those clutch performances and the Dodgers really did come through. They were They were fantastic. Even with the crazy game for 87 collapse that we thought was going to turn the Siri's around in a different direction tied it, too. But at the very At the next turn, The Dodgers come back and they never look back. They are champions, and they very much deserved it. Even though it was an eight game season. It was very much Before playoffs and everything else. Yeah, it's it's a legit championship. But but but but but Justin Turner removed from the game because it was positive for Corona virus. He returned for a celebration often mask lists hugging people. He sat next to Dave Roberts, the manager who is a cancer survivor, and therefore more at risk. How How do you finish that sentence? How do we characterize this? Well, he characterizes as a massive massive Hey, irresponsibility on the part of Justin Turner on the part of the Dodgers and certainly on the part of Major League baseball, even though Major League Baseball has tried to get out in front of this by laying the blame at the feet of Justin Turner, and it is his responsibility. However, I have a hard time believing that that he was allowed to play with an inconclusive test, so they took him off of the field after the test was Was found to be positive. But if you have an inconclusive test, how do you let him play in the first place? And so everyone's going to take responsibility for this, But this is what we're seeing across the board were seeing this at the University of Florida with all of their positive test. We're seeing it with the big 10 as well on the Big 10 had made the decision earlier not to play, and then they got bullied by the president into playing, and now they're canceling games. This is the thing Scott we talked about this months ago. Everyone saw this coming, but this country has just made a decision not to care about it. And, of course, the discussion of the weak. Ah, Kevin Cash, the Tampa manager, pulling Blake smell Blake Snell, Tampa Cy Young Award winning pitcher after he struck out nine after just 5.5 innings because of analytics. Tampa lost with almost the next pitch as this decision become emblematic of these over analysed times. Well, absolutely. But I had a revelation during this world serious guy and I think I've always known it, but it it wasn't crystallized until watching this. I don't watch baseball or I don't watch sports for wins and losses. I watch sports for competition. And this this thing they did not let Blake smell compete. And this happened at a time. When look at who we lost during this baseball season where you've lost the great picture, Whitey Ford, you lost the great competitor, Bob Gibson. And these players, they're legends come from competition, and if you're not going to let a player compete, what is the purpose of being a Cy Young Award winner? You're not even going to be allowed to have these classic championship moments. If they pull you out of the game. This is why we watch in baseball. At least the Tampa Bay Rays took that away from us. Howard Bryant of ESPN Well said, Thanks so much. Thank you.

"He probably meant it. The FBI might have never pursued Whitey. If a judge hadn't released a six, hundred, sixty, one page report in nineteen ninety nine. It was damning and and how the FBI had protected Whitey and allowed him to maintain his criminal enterprises off the report. The Justice Department launched a criminal inquiry into the Boston FBI's practices. This led to the FBI arresting John Connolly just before Christmas of Nineteen, ninety, nine, all of Whitey's former southie compasses were eventually arrested and most of them flipped. The revelation that Whitey was an FBI informant made them question why they were protecting rat in two thousand white he was charged in absentia with nineteen murders in a federal racketeering indictment. This was largely thanks to the testimonies of his closest winter hill associates. John connally was then convicted of corruption charges in two thousand and two, and later convicted of the second degree murder of John, Callahan in two thousand eight in total. He faced a fifty year prison sentence and yet why he was still missing his trail had gone completely cold, and before long he eventually became number two on the FBI's most wanted list. Some bin Laden of course was number one. Throughout the two thousands tips on whyte's whereabouts sporadically came in someone thought they saw him at a screening of the departed in San Diego in two thousand six another claim to have seen him on the Santa Monica Pier in two thousand and eight. The FBI wasn't much better off in two, thousand, ten, the bureau admitted it needed help. So they brought in US Marshal Neil Sullivan a skilled tracker Sullivan quickly realized that the best way to get to wine t was to find his girlfriend Cathy Greg- unlike whitey Kathy wouldn't be hiding in disguise. Supposedly vein the FBI had to believe she'd be doing her best to look as young as she was fifteen years ago by mid two, thousand eleven they had created a thirty second TV spot asking for. About Kathy and run it during daytime talkshows. While some of the leads were dead ends, there was one with promise it came from Reykjavik specifically the former Miss Iceland on a EST daughter. To seen a story on CNN about the search for white and his girlfriend Cathy Greg- She was absolutely certain that the woman with Whitey was someone she recognized as Carol Gasco and the Carol. Gasco she knew was a cat lover Mary to an old comedian named Charlie and they lived in Sunny Santa Monica California as it turned out. Whitey, and Kathy settled down in Santa Monica California in Nineteen Ninety six and for the last sixteen years they've been calling the Princess Eugenia. Complex, home. The FBI sent local agents to stake out the apartment once it was confirmed that both Whitey and Kathy were still living in the building law enforcement decided to apprehend them in June of two thousand eleven on June twenty second the building manager cooled Kathy and told her that someone broke into that outdoor storage locker. Cathy said that Whitey would go check on it at around five, forty, five, pm eighty, one year old Whitey bulger walked outside and was immediately surrounded by FBI agents. They tried to force him to the ground, but he wouldn't comply there was oil on the concrete white. He didn't WanNA stain his slacks eventually white he was escorted to lax to be flown back to Boston. He was jovial in the car to the airport joking with the offices and criticizing their tactical errors. Back. In Boston wide he told authorities that he would plead guilty to all his crimes. If they let Cathy Greg- go he said. She did what all the cops prisons and courts couldn't got me to live crime-free for sixteen years for this they should give her a medal. That wasn't how the court saw though upon hearing she was given eight years Whitey was appalled but he soon have to face his own trial which began on June twelfth two, thousand thirteen. Prosecutors presented his laundry list of heinous crimes including thirty two counts of racketeering money, laundering, extortion, and involvement in nineteen murders. While his defense fought these charges, their main focus was embellishing Whitey's image as an honorable criminal they wanted to make it clear. He wasn't an informant he paid corrupt FBI agents for information. The also passionately tried to avoid discussing if he'd killed Fleming's ex girlfriend Debra Davis and Fleming's stepdaughter. Debbie Hussy. Killing women didn't fit with the honorable criminal persona they were trying to cultivate white. He didn't do much to help his image as a good guy though when his old allies testified against him, his outbursts were angry and explosive when his former protege Kevin weeks and to to take the stand whitey shouted you suck as the entire courtroom listened. They almost got in a fistfight then in there when the trial finally came to an end Whitey was convicted on thirty one of thirty two counts including participation in eleven murders. Strangely enough no verdict was reached on the death of Deborah Davis. His defense team had done that much. On November fourteenth two thousand thirteen James Whitey Bolger received two life sentences plus five years more and was ordered to pay nineteen point five million dollars in restitution. So often almost half a century he had returned to. The federal. Prison. System. Do you spend the next five years being moved from prison to prison he eventually earned a reputation for causing trouble other inmates. All of this came to a grisly end on October thirtieth two thousand eighteen when the eighteen year old whitey was beaten to death in the Hazelton Federal Penitentiary in West Virginia. No one has officially been charged with Whitey's death has of two thousand nineteen federal authorities are still investigating photos gs a former Mafia hitman as his killer. The suspicion is that he may have killed Whitey because he was despite a lifetime of denial a rat. The End Whitey Bolger had two stories. One was of a poor kid from the projects who grew up to be a cities criminal overlord. The other was more grim a tale of corruption and failure in some of the United States. Most storied institutions school. System Failed Whitey. It couldn't keep his interest and he was eager to leave the prison system didn't reform him instead he was a Guinea pig too horrible experiments and the FBI failed to allowing Whitey to carry out crimes in exchange for helping take down the Mafia. But this only meant he abused the FBI's power bending it. So he could rule South Boston for almost twenty years. No one was more aware of this than the bureau which has since changed its protocols. It now has updated guidelines for how to handle informants. Concrete's insurance meant to prevent suffering through the nightmare of a second Whitey bulger..

In nineteen ninety sixty one year old Boston Crime Lord Whitey Bolger retired from being an FBI informant after fifteen years of using the bureau to protect his criminal enterprises the aging gangster was ready to live off the fruits of his Labor ready for his golden years. Unfortunately, other law enforcement agencies weren't ready to give up on taking him down in fact, the Organized Crime Unit of Massachusetts State. Police had a new commander. Sergeant Tom Foley. Had A chip on his shoulder for a certain. Southie legend Foley had long suspected that Whitey was an informant on top of that. Foley had a grudge against the FBI because they routinely prosecuted fellow state troopers corruption yet. Let Their own corrupt agents retire quietly hoping to take down Whitey and expose the FBI fully concocted an innovative plan. He'd go after the bookies for years the Winter Hill. Gang had extorted Boston's bookmakers fully bet that one of them would be willing to talk and he was going to keep the FBI in the dark. Specifically Foley wanted to put the bookies assets jeopardy he hoped that if he took their savings, they'd want to cut a deal. Foley was right in Nineteen ninety-one. The Massachusetts State police seized over two million dollars from a bookie named Chico. KRANTZ KRANTZ had grown tired after pain Whitey? Protection money for years. It took little effort to get him to flip US attorneys soon used krantz and other bookies to build a racketeering case against Whitey and his right hand man Steve Phlegm e. By nineteen, ninety, four the case was ready for arrests. But this also meant that it was time to talk to the FBI somehow Whitey and Flamy when never confirmed to be official FBI informants. So a US attorney called the Boston FBI Office to find out once and for all, it took eighteen days for the FBI to finally admit that Yes whitey and Fleming had been working with them since the nineteen seventies and while the information surprised no one, it was the admission necessary for the studies to finally make their move on. Whitey. On January Fifth Nineteen, ninety-five Steve, Fleming was arrested. But as for Whitey Bolger, the police couldn't find him anywhere Whitey had disappeared. John Connolly had once again saved his old friend. Though he'd been at the FBI for four years. Connolly obviously still had friends in the bureau. One Pasta long word of the indictment and he alerted Whitey. So the aging gangster, packed his things and fled Boston with his girlfriend Theresa Stanley but Theresa grew tired of life on the run after only a few months she made. Whitey take her back to Boston. But before he left again white, he picked up his other girlfriend Cathy Greg-. Could handle life undercover. He had smashes of money fake identification and weapons hidden all over the country. Lucky for. Whitey. The FBI didn't want him caught so easily either he had become the agency's dirty secret and they certainly didn't want to give him the opportunity to spill what he knew to federal prosecutors according to some they quietly sabotage the search downplaying credible tips. Like one from a hassle on in southern California and they didn't even interview John Connolly about where Whitey could be until nineteen ninety-seven nearly two years after Fleming was arrested Connolly had no idea where Whitey was as the agents got up to leave. He said I hope he's never caught considering what it would mean to connolly if Whitey was arrested,.

But the agents leading the investigation weren't sold on how they're in as an informant. In light of this, they went to the head of Boston's Organized Crime Division to Suss out more information on Halloween shortly. Thereafter, Whitey received a call from John Connolly without any pleasantries connolly said simply. Hollarin' is wearing a wire. It was shocking moment a reversal even. Why is he had been brought on as the informant and now John connally was routing information to Whitey. The rules were no longer bending. They had snapped into connolly hadn't given Whitey any explicit instructions to deal with. Halloran but he knew full. Well, what is informant was capable of? That spring on May Eleventh Nineteen eighty-two Whitey and his protege Kevin Weekes Court, Halperin. Appear restaurants in Boston at around six PM Halloween exited the Paul and got in a friend's car to head home. Then whitey pulled up alongside them. He shouted Hey Brian before he opened fire shooting Halloran twenty two times. That hololens death wasn't the end of the investigation. There was one more loose end. Conley grew nervous when he found out that other FBI agents were planning on questioning Callahan. He reached out to Whitey warning him that Callahan was bound to break under questioning. He didn't need to say any more Whitey had an associate kill Callahan in the Miami airport parking deck several days. Later, his body was found in the trunk of a Cadillac a parking attendant had noticed fluid leaking from the trunk and the smell as frustrated as Whitey was with these buckles. They again undoubtedly proved connelly still had his back after all he had murdered a prominent businessman fifteen, hundred miles away from Boston, Whitey new the leash was off connolly was now complicit in his crimes. which meant within reason Whitey could pursue whatever enterprise he wanted. So he and Fleming decided to expand Whitey was now ready to attempt his most ambitious scheme yet transatlantic arms trafficking. As a strong supporter of the Irish. Republican. Army all I are a white. He felt compelled to help their fights against the British controlled Northern Ireland. He actually had Irish citizenship. Thanks to his grandmother. The IRA needed weapons than Whitey had access to both funds and transportation. As it turns out Whitey had been extorting. Southie drug dealers for some time their fleet of trawlers which shipped marijuana up and down the east coast could be of use Whitey's plan was to use the trawler, the Valhalla to transport guns and ammunition across the Atlantic to aid the IRA. And to help pay for its all white, he is going to shake down the drug dealers for donations. He amassed over one million dollars, which he then used to purchase firearms and ammunition. The VALHALLA was loaded with ninety one rifles, eight submachine guns, thirteen shotguns, fifty-one handguns, eleven, bulletproof vests, seventy thousand rounds of ammunition and several grenades and rockets. And at midnight on September fourteenth, Nineteen eighty-four the floating arsenal set sail for the Emerald dial there were only five men on board three Boston Irish gangsters a captain and mechanic turned drug dealer named John mcintire. Unfortunately the voyage was anything but smooth the Valhalla ran into hurricanes and nearly sank. For some reason why he had thought setting sale during hurricane season would provide good cover, but he'd failed to consider its dangers. The strategy nearly cost them a major deal with the IRA luckily, often more than fourteen days at sea. The valhalla made it to Ireland and met up with the IRA vessel Marita an once the weapons and AMMO were transferred. The valhalla headed home to Boston. Miraculously the operation was a success, also whitey thought a few days after the exchange Whitey saw news report that the Irish Navy had intercepted an IRA vessel carrying weapons the Marita Ann was under investigation. Things. Only unraveled more from there. Off to the Valhalla doctrine in Boston John McIntyre was soon arrested. Shockingly his arrest had nothing to do with gun running, but rather sneaking into his estranged wife's. In police custody, McIntyre panicked and spilled the beans about everything the arms dealing the drug operations and everything involving Winter Hill. The cops who arrested him had no idea how deep he was involved in Southie. So they called in a quincy detective who was already working with the dea they'd being tracking Whitey's involvement in the drug trade that hadn't been able to find a corroborating witness. Now it seemed like, McIntyre was then man the DA reached out to the FBI who sent a liaison to interview McIntyre. The liaison later claimed that commonly overheard him telling other agents in Boston FBI office that someone on the Valhalla had flipped, which spurred connelly to meet with Whitey the agent knew someone from the Valhalla was writing him out but didn't know who but Whitey had a good idea. McIntyre lived in Quincy, and if a quincy detective was involved, he had to be the rat on November thirtieth nineteen eighty-four Whitey struck under the guise of a party. One of his associates lured John McIntyre to a house on third. Street they proceeded to shoot him in the head and bury him in the basement. McIntyre was one of what would soon be three bodies buried there. Whitey took to calling the place the haunting. With the gun running debacle finally squashed why do you learn another valuable lesson stick with what you know? From now on his main focus would be on extortion and passing tips to Connolly. He even appeared to quit killing his last known murder occurred in Nineteen eighty-five connelly to was relieved that Whitey had settled down. It certainly made their relationship easier, which was indicative of what was to come why would allegedly aid him in an operation that was arguably the highlight of Connolly's career Connolly himself claimed that whites he played parts in the FBI's nine, thousand, nine, hundred, nine effort to record a mafia induction ceremony Connolly was ultimately able to bug the house where the ceremony took place recording the entire event. This recording was the holy grail of Mafia evidence. It would become the basis of many mafia related.

I the end of nineteen, eighty, fifty, one year old Whitey bulger was feeling confident he and his business partner Steve Fleming were among the few remaining leaders of the Winter Hill Gang and thanks to agent John Connolly they had the FBI firmly in their back pocket forty year old connolly was feeling confidence as well. His handling of Whitey had made him a superstar agent in the Boston FBI office in his mind he had whitey in his back pocket. He couldn't have been more wrong. Whitey had grown overconfident after seeing how far connolly would stretch to protect him during the FBI bugging operation. And he was about to show connelly who really held the power in their relationship. John Callahan was an accountant and Wannabe gangster, and by the end of nineteen eighty, he was in trouble. He'd recently been fired from weld highlight. One of the largest highlight betting companies in the United States, a sports similar to handball or squash. The company's new leadership tycoon from Oklahoma named Roger Wheeler found out someone was skimming money from their prophets and he was planning to replace the entire financial team. Once world highlights books were audited. It wouldn't take long for wheeler to find out that Callahan had been taking millions from the company for Years Callaghan tried unsuccessfully to buy the company from Huila who refused in Callahan's mind this meant then that we la had to go fortunately. Callahan new just the men for the job. Whitey. Bolger and the Winter Hill Gang Callahan reportedly met the gang at the black rose pub in the spring of Nineteen eighty-one. Promised White t ten, thousand dollars a week. If they killed Huila Callahan assumes that with the boss dead, we LA's family would sell him the company. It seemed like good money. But whitey he had concerns his FBI contacts wouldn't be able to do much Oklahoma and wheeler had a reputation there. His death was bound to draw attention. But Steve Lemme thought the money was just too good for only having to kill one guy. Though he could be inflexible toward his enemies. No one had whitey's ear quite like Fleming. He cautiously agreed but that didn't mean that he felt good about it. Why do you said we're all going to go to jail. This will never go away never. On May twenty, seventh, one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one, two hit-men waited for Roger Wheeler at the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa. Oklahoma, they saw him and to the parking lot heading to his car to retrieve something from the back seat in full view of the kids at a nearby swimming pool. One of the hitman crept up the side wheeler as he sat down behind his steering wheel and shot him in the head. On the surface, the hits appeared to be a success. But whitey's fees soon, materialized, we lose widow wooden sell the company. His sons were convinced that their fathers blatant daylight murder was Callahan's fault the Tulsa Police Force an FBI office to shared this belief knowing Callahan was an associate of the Winter Hill Gang. He was obvious who orchestrated the hit investigating the connection the Tulsa FBI. Reached out the Boston Office. Connolly. Interviewed Callahan who predictably said he didn't associate with Winter Hill. Gangsters Connolly then did his due diligence and interviewed White Ian Fleming who denied any association with the murder commonly reported all of this back to Tulsa as if vouching for their innocence Stonewall, the Tulsa authorities were out of leads and had to drop the investigation.

By one thousand nine, hundred, seventy, five, forty, six, year, old South Boston Mobster James Whitey Bolger was feeling good. He just made a deal with an old neighborhood friend John Connolly to provide information on the Italian mafia to the FBI. Whitey and his partner Stephen Fleming. We even allowed to continue the illegal gambling and loansharking operations to maintain his criminal credibility. This was a fairly common FBI procedure at the time. However, informants were immediately cut loose and prosecuted. Should their crimes escalate into something so dire as to not be ignored something like murder. THANKS TO J Edgar Hoover. The cardinal rule when dealing with informants simply seemed to be make sure they never embarrassed the agency thirty five year old FBI agent John Connolly was happy with the deal as well. Informants with a lifeblood of modern FBI investigations. The roads are promotions, roses, fame, and power. It was by all means a mutually beneficial arrangement. Whitey spent his first year with the FBI proving he was a star informant. Passed along countless stories of the New England Mafias, inner workings who was talking to whom who is going to get hit who had faked a heart attack to avoid a grand jury subpoena everything of course, much of it was just mobster gossip but it impressed the Boston FBI office. They felt like they really had a man inside the city's underworld. By nineteen seventy-six, they had upgraded both Whitey and Flamy to top echelon informants. But whitey wasn't just feeding them harmless gossip. He was using his connection with Connolly to get his enemies arrested and protect his allies. On one occasion, he reportedly righted out the location of a rival hiding in New Hampshire on another. He supposedly lied to Connolly telling him that an enforcer of his who is accused of murder had quote unquote nothing to do with it all the while Whitey was consolidating his hold over his Winter Hill Gang. Gambling and loansharking were joined by money making practices like extortion and numbers, and even murder Whitey quickly realized that connally was willing to look the other way on practically anything he did. So long as Whitey delivered connolly good information on the Italians Whitey. was like a battery pack for Connolly's career. But soon, one of Whitey's schemes would show him just how far connolly was willing to go to protect.

"Dominant underworld organizations. However, Fleming had even more protection than just good relations with the Irish and the Italians, he was also an FBI informant. The bureau had a national mandate to take down the Cosa Nostra. It was worth it for them to look the other way on Fleming's criminal behavior. If he gave them information on the Italians sources differ as to whether or not Whitey was aware of flame. He's role as a rat. It's possible that he knew and saw it as an advantage over the Italians. After all for three years, the Irish Italian relationship was relatively peaceful. But in one thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, five tensions were beginning to rise. The current trouble with the Italians arose over vending machines accompany had been paying the Mafia fifty thousand dollars a month for a monopoly in all the bars in Boston Whitey in the Winter Hill gang realized there was a lot of money to be made in the machines. They decided that in their parts of town, they should be the ones who controlled the machines. The Mafia obviously didn't agree rumors of a war began to circulate throughout Boston putting Whitey on edge. Once he wasn't certain that the Winter Hill Gang could come out on top were still the mafia's current lead. It was known for using his police contacts to arrest criminals who wouldn't fall in line if Whitey didn't know Fleming was talking to the feds having police contacts with then proved to be a big advantage for the Italians, Whitey and the Winter Hill gang would be sitting ducks if a war broke out, they needed someone on their side. And to John? Connolly. The boy wants he bought ice cream for back in nineteen forty eight. By now, the thirty five, zero connelly was an up and coming FBI agents. In the Organized Crime Division he knew that the Winter Hill Gang was close to blows with the New England Mafia and he knew they were outgunned connelly came up with a daring idea. He figured the time was ripe to make a deal with the Irish mobsters for one. The Italian mafia was the white whale for the feds in comparison Irish street gangs were small. Time Fish for the FBI secondly connolly puzzling new the bulge family. He was friends with Billy Bolger who by now was a state senator and figured he could use their southie history to Lou Whitey in as an informant it was a win win deal the FBI wanted to take down the Italian mafia and the Winter Hill gang needed to offset the mafia's crooked cops sometime in mid nineteen seventy-five connolly got were to white t he wanted to meet. Whitey. was interested but equally wary meeting with the FBI dangerous especially if someone saw it. Though Whitey had no problem routing out his enemies, he knew that even being suspected of informing was a death sentence in Southie, but ultimately Whitey agreed to meet with connolly at least a hey, what his neighborhood brother had to say. On September Eighteenth Nineteen seventy-five Whitey and connelly met at Walston beach in suburban Quincy. Both men were on edge unsure if it was a waste of time or some kind of trap Connolly started off his pitch slowly. He told Whitey he'd heard the mafia was already leaking information about why t to the police in an effort to get him arrested. Hearing this from an FBI agent spooked. Whitey. He told Connolly what if three cop stopped me at night and say there was a machine gun in my car who is a judge going to believe me or the three cops for his part connolly saw this as his moment to sell. He Ost Whitey. Why don't you use us to do what they're doing to you? Fight fire with fire hearing. Connolly's pitch phrased like this appeal to Whitey in his mind he wasn't a rat but a strategist, it was the smart move to work with the feds. However whitey needed some time to think it over just to be sure. Two weeks later, Whitey officially agreed to work with Connolly. But there were a few conditions he wouldn't hurt any of his associates. He would only consult connelly about the New England mob and he would never rat on the Irish Republican Army. The final request confused Connolly he had never once asked, why do you about the IRA? Turns out Whitey was a devout Irish Republican. He had been making secret plans to send weapons to his Irish brothers in their fight against the British he didn't want the FBI derailing his future plans. Connolly figured he could deal with these terms for the time being and the bargain was struck as they shook hands warranty famously said. Deal me in. If, they want to play checkers we'll play chess whites he was referring to the mafia, but his words could have been directed at the FBI to. The feds thought they could control ninety. But in a few short years, Y T would become the one telling them what to do, and with that handshake Whitey knew he could act with total impunity. He would use his relationship with connelly to take over the Boston underworld rake in millions.

"Getting his hands bloody. What is clear though was that Whitey needed to be taught how to successfully pull off routine murders and not long after he joined the colleen's Whitey was paired with a man who would mentor him in the art of killing Billy O'Sullivan Sullivan was an. Ex Marine and lethal with a gun. He was infamous his ruthlessness Whitey had most likely never killed anyone before and he was obviously unsettled by it. However, a key and O'Sullivan became friends and feeling more reassured white. He proved to be a fast learner which was a good thing because another gang war broke out in South Boston in July of Nineteen, sixty nine. The Irish were nothing like the Italians instead of being meticulously or nuys with a rigid ethnicity based criminal structure the Irish. Looser a network of affiliated gang sue primarily focused on small time crime. They fought with one another just as often as they work together in the wake of the Irish Gang War, the colleen's had managed to maneuver themselves into a position of supremacy. This hierarchy meant that a smaller gang known as the mullins had to defer to them and the mullins hit it for a time. The CA- leans and mullins put their differences aside and work together. But the animosity remained South Boston was always a powder keg waiting for a spark. And in the summer of Nineteen sixty-nine that spock was named Mickey Dwyer. At the transit cafe well known to be the domain of the CA- Leans Mullen Associate Mickey, Dwyer decided for whatever reason that it was high time to complain about the colleen's in a colleen dominated Barna less as it turns out Kenny. Colleen was at the bar that day and wasn't too thrilled about Dwyer's unnecessary jabs. So he tackled Wyatt to the floor and in the ensuing tussle shot in the arm and bit off part of his nose in a split second, the keg had sparked. The mullins had been looking for an excuse to go to war for a long time, and now they finally had it. Fortunately, the colleen's had two of the most notorious Hitman in town billy O'Sullivan and now thirty, nine year old Whitey Bolger it's widely believed. That it was during this war when whites he committed his first murder according to one of Whitey's later associates he was soon tasked with killing a mullen boss named Paul macgonagall. Unfortunately, Whitey Bentley shot Paul's brother instead who had no involvement in the gang war when he told O'Sullivan about the mix up O'Sullivan told him not to worry about it. So despite feeling guilty Whitey apparently shrugged the wrongful death off he went back to work. But by Nineteen seventy-one, the war started to turn against the colleen's. In March that year O'Sullivan himself was killed ambushed in front of his own house. At the time wife's He was in New York visiting an old friend from prison Whitey was sobered by O'Sullivan's death not only was his friend and mentor gone but the ambush drove home that he could be next. Paranoid perhaps rightfully. So why do you began taking extra precautions as he moved throughout the city? He even bought the nicest suit. He could afford and hung his then girlfriend's closet in the event he was gunned down he at least have one. Nice. To, be buried in one without any bullet holes in it more than anything. OSCEOLA death made Whitey reconsider working for the Killeen's. was there a point to putting his life on the line in their fruitless war especially if he might not live to see the Prophets There needed to be a change in South Boston and that could only come with an end to the gang war on May thirteenth nine thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, two, Donnie Kaleen left his sons fourth birthday party to grab something from his car. When he stepped outside to men appeared and shot. Donny. Fifteen times allegedly whitey orchestrated the hit himself as the story went he knew the CA- leans days were numbered. So he double crossed them. He entered a secret alliance with the mullins positioning himself to take out his old boss. Though the mullins denied the rumour and took sole credit for the murder events from the following week seemed to suggest otherwise it looked like a big power grab for Whitey. According to some sources whites, he secretly approached Howie winter the leader of the Winter Hill gang to broker a peace agreement. He pitched himself as acting boss of the cleans even though the gangs leadership might have been expected to pass down to Donny's brother Kenny Howie, who is friendly with the mullins agreed to arbitrate a truce with whitey acting as the KALEEN leader for forty two year old Whitey Bolger. This was a moment with great potential. If he played his cards, right he could stay the leader of the colleen's or maybe if he was lucky get something even better. But during that mid morning, sit down how he winter had other plans.

In nineteen, Fifty, two, twenty, three year old James. Whitey Bolger had returned to South Boston after serving three years in the air force. Military life was hardly satisfying and he was dying to make a quick buck. So he returned petty crime but that wasn't enough either his prayers were soon answered when he met Carl Smith a bank robber from Indiana why is he met? Smith at a local Selfie boss sometime around nineteen fifty five and at the time Whitey supposedly didn't know that his new friend was a bank robber. All he was aware of was that Smith needed a drive if something illegal something exciting. Whites, he readily agreed details of his first bank robbery are sparse but Whitey himself reportedly claimed that when he discovered what the real job was, his first impulse was to back out however, why t still went ahead with the job he was too afraid of what the other guys in the crew would think if he chickened out this first robbery was clearly a success granted Whitey Ian Smith went on to rob several more banks in the months that followed the school came in. May of nineteen, fifty, five at a local branch of the Industrial National Bank in Pawtucket Rhode. Island within full minutes, whites he in the crew escaped with forty two, thousand, one, hundred, twelve dollars or a little more than four hundred thousand dollars today for a kid who grew up during the Great Depression. This felt like finally hitting the big time and to celebrate twenty five year old Whitey took his girlfriend Jackie on multiple vacations to Florida where he bought her anything she wanted. But things couldn't stay rosy forever that same year in November whites he teamed up with fellow. Bank Robber Richard Bauchard to rob the Hoosier State Bank in Indiana though the job itself was successful, it proved to be one bank too many a few months later in early nineteen, fifty-six an. spotted. Whitey wearing a cheap disguise at a nightclub just north of Boston he soon alerted the FBI in Whitey was arrested shortly thereafter, the agents in charge of white Whitey's arrests was a man named Paul Rico. Rico was notorious for his ability to flip criminals into informants and in Nineteen fifty-six he saw potential in Whitey. He had found himself a new rat rico showed whitey respect never acting with condescension even though he came from the insular southie where riding out anyone to the police was an unforgivable sin why do you prove different than his peers? He was quick to give up his accomplices. This would mark the first time in his criminal career that he was willing to sell others out in order to protect himself according to Whitey his reasons for talking released somewhat altruistic. He wanted to make sure his girlfriend Jackie was kept out of the fray. She hadn't done anything wrong and the feds needed to leave her alone. He also claimed it was called Smith who'd ratted him out to the authorities in Indiana, and there was no need to protect someone like that yet despite cooperating with the FBI, Whitey was still sentenced to twenty years in federal prison in June of Nineteen, fifty six. Surprisingly why was optimistic about the situation? He saw it as an opportunity to finally get an education a chance to better himself but prison wasn't so clean cut when he arrived at the federal penitentiary in Atlanta, he immediately hated it. He tried to read and study but sharing a cell with seven another men made it nearly impossible to focus whitey became desperate for an early release in August of Nineteen fifty seven, he even signed up to be a test subject for an experimental drug program run by the US government. What he didn't realise was that he had just volunteered to be a part of M. K. tra- running from one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, three to nineteen, sixty, four. M.. K. Ultra was a clandestine C. A. Program straight out the pages of a Hollywood conspiracy thriller. Its objective was defined a mind control drug. The CIA as drug of choice at the time was lysergic acid diethylamide commonly known as LSD. Why do you agree to subject himself to weekly LSD injections for three dollars a shot though the tradeoff was mere days taken off his overall sentence. By. The end of his fifteen month long participation in the program Whitey only got fifty four days removed. The LSD however had a much longer lasting effect from that point onward wanted he suffered from insomnia and debilitating nightmares he was known to wake up in the middle of the night screaming. This condition would haunt him.

Once they were downstairs white he tried to strangle McIntyre with the rope. But the rope was too thick.

Whitey used his position as an informant for the FBI to kill another enforcement and the FBI had helped him do it. People like John McIntyre. What collateral damage the cost of doing business ultimately McIntyre's death meant nothing to Whitey. In fact, he went upstairs and took a nap a ritual he kept after every kill. Meanwhile, two of his henchmen buried the body John mcintire wasn't the first person buried in that house and he wouldn't be the lost. It was all part of Whitey's mission to hold onto his power and wealth key knew what it was like to be dirt poor and he wasn't ever going to live that way again. No matter. The costs. Whitey was born James Bolger junior on September third nineteen, twenty nine. Even at an early age he was known to have stark white hair hence the name Whitey. He. Hated it preferring instead to be called Jim or Jimmy. He was born in Everett Massachusetts a city a few miles north of Boston. But when he was eight years old, the family moved to the neighborhood that he would one day rule South Boston South Boston or Southie as the locals call, it has always seen itself as a place distinct from the rest of the city. Perhaps it's because south is a peninsula that juts out into Dorchester Bay and when it was first settled, the neighborhood turned into an island during high tide or it might be because from the mid eighteen hundreds on woods. Southie was predominantly a working class Irish Catholic neighborhood. The quickly became home to some of Boston's most violent carryings whatever the reason southie felt like a city within a city there the bolger's moved into the old harbor village project, a public housing complex for families affected by the Great. Depression. Miraculously the family of seven managed to cram together and live off the pittance that whyte's father brought in. James Bulger's senior made his living as a one armed laborer. Because few people wanted hire a work with only one arm especially during the Great Depression James Senior never had a steady job throughout his entire life. Changed. The family's finances and weighed on why? He felt growing up impoverished meant he needed to make something of himself like many gangsters Whitey had a fraught relationship with his father James Senior even beat him on several occasions for talking back. After that, why do you seem to develop a complete disdain for authority? Soon, the young boy had trouble obeying any authority figure especially teachers they described him as a surly lazy students who had no interest in school work. This attitude was a far cry from his younger brother Billy Billy would excel in his studies later graduating from Boston college law school unlike Whitey, billy was the good son despite the differences Whitey and billy were close. They constantly had each other's backs. This strong bond would be key to whyte's criminal success later on especially once billy became a high ranking politician in the Massachusetts Commonwealth government. It was only a matter of time before Whitey found his way into crime with little money coming in for the family and a poor record in school Whitey knew there was only one way out he'd have to get his hands dirty. He started his criminal career around his twelfth birthday stealing small-time merchandise like toasters and Ian's off the back of parked trucks the kids cold it tailgating it wasn't long before Whitey graduated to more serious crimes. Just a year later at thirteen, he was arrested for Larceny and delinquency. It was no coincidence that around the same time also joined a youth street gang called the shamrocks wild in the shamrocks wide. He began to style himself as a gentleman gangster helpful to the community but ruthless toward his enemies whiting Nevoso himself as a bad person, and he certainly didn't want the rest of the well to see him that way IFA, he would often describe himself as a good bad guy. He might beat a kid up for money but then he turned around and use that money to buy different kid treat a regular Robin Hood. And it was during one of Whitey's early gentlemen gangster moments when he met another kid who would be just as important to his future career as his brother John Connolly. In the summer of nineteen, Forty, eight, eight year old John connally was hanging out with some friends that an ice cream store when Whitey bulger passed by. Whitey ost the boys if they wanted some ice cream, everyone's said, yes. Except for Connolly Connolly told Whitey that he wasn't supposed to take anything from a stranger whitey gallantly knelt down and told the young connolly that both of their families were from Ireland. So they weren't strangers they were both Irish that was a gesture of brotherhood and all it took to get connolly on his side Connolly would remember this and similar acts of kindness from white t throughout his entire life and years later connolly made sure to return the favor. As a teenager, Whitey was arrested multiple times for various crimes including attempted rape in order to create some distance from his growing rap sheet though he did what many wayward Southie boys did he joined the military from nineteen, forty, nine to nine, hundred and fifty two Whitey served in the Air Force as an aircraft mechanic still despite the strict military discipline, he was unable to shake his rule breaking ways. He spent most of his time getting into trouble on various bases while in Oklahoma City in nineteen fifty widely even briefly sat military jail for going Awol and yet two years later, Whitey left with an honorable discharge. Twenty, three whites he returned to South Boston feeling restless and itching to earn money. He tried his hands at tailgating again and he earned enough cash to buy an oldsmobile. The wheels allowed him to call to local beauty named Jackie McAuliffe. But that wasn't enough why he was ready to try his hand at something more serious than just petty knockoff jobs. He just didn't know his way in yet so he went looking. Not, long after returning home whites, he began to hang around local Baas even though he didn't drink, he knew they were the right place and the right time, and soon he grew very friendly with a man named call. Smith allegedly Smith would be the one to introduce Whitey to a whole new profession frank rubbing. Coming up,.

In. The kitchen John mcintire shook his head apologizing over and over again he told his boss. I'm sorry. I was week white. He wasn't interested in the apologies he needed information. He turned the conversation to ask him questions about what McIntyre told the FBI. NDA and then oddly his questions shifted back towards business McIntyre was entrenched in Boston's drug trade Whitey. He had been forcing South Boston's drug dealers to pay him rent for working his streets and he wanted to make sure he was still getting his haircut McIntyre spilled everything both what he said to the feds and about the drug industry he.

You wouldn't imagine that anybody would even breathe in Whitey bulger's direction. Boston South Boston but these guys at the end of his life rarely treated him. Like you know feeble man that they were going to Get one overall so not only was bald. You're a murder in a very heinous way. He was also incredibly humiliated by fellow. Windex that's you story. It was just pitiful supposed to be all happened. Your Grandfather Susan. I'm much now ray. Not Sympathetic I mean like. Oh that's just string. Bean is to what I was saying where you know again. No sympathy for Whitey Bulger. The Guy was stabbed in prison. He's clearly a target the prison. He's going to build with a giant lobsters. Oh and by the way some from Massachusetts. Oh and by the way some that actually had ties to whiting's criminal and you're putting them into that situation as an eighty nine year old man. They reduced his Healthcare level someone changed that document. He was ever of care level when he was at a Coleman Down in Florida and that was changed so that he could be moved. That's many answer for that. I mean his guy that's had multiple heart attacks. He can barely walk at this point. He's eighty nine years old and they the general population so again no sympathy. He gets what he deserves there. But that's not really responsible inmate control to say the least so do you guys just continue on the same path or do you feel like you need levity and you're going to write about like you know something adorable puppies next. I didn't see say we're GONNA write about puppies next. Yeah he didn't mean we've written some craft stores but we also ridden stories of hope and inspiration. Europa STORY ABOUT PETE. Frady's was the LS hero that inspired the ice bucket. Challenge in. That was an incredible story. That was also very emotional for us to get ball with because we got very close to Pete in his family Brady's passed away at the age of thirty five back in December But EMMER SEWRI and every book stays with us all the people that we've written about whether it's the Boston marathon bombings that eventually became the movie Patriots Day we got embedded with the survivor community for well over a year And all those stories and a very honest way and we're still you know indebted to those survivors in friends with them to this day in when we start to think about how we get past the hunting Whitey story. It's all about not necessarily keeping wedding bolger with US. Is We don't want to do that. It's about keeping the idea of as I said perseverance some of these FBI agents some of these prosecutors that that did the right thing at the end of the day. Those are the stories that will continue to stay with us in inspire us. In whatever Fra Project. We go to next. I love that and I really love the book. I'll show everyone again hunting whitey.

Yes done live music way. Yeah that song is so good. I can't and you'd be surprised. How many great tunes there? Because we've got such a bad rap and I was asking Matinee Rooney. Do you think it was like homophobia that made people react to disco by doing the like disco socks. Steamroller baseball game. Do you remember that. Yeah I mean a boycott anti disco disco thing. Because you think it was homophobia or something else Oh. I didn't even think about it. As being homophobic like homophobic I almost see it as being more like anti yes Yes and my kind of being like I'm trying to think if there's like a more modern I kind of like boy bands like leads like what I'd say. You use a home capitalist and musical elitist and being like all your sell out like it's like that Kinda I think though there might be more to it in terms of because I think you're right love it are women and gay people. I never even thought about that. And it was this battle between classic rock and roll is like so straight male like white white that like discos more people of color to yes hordley. Yeah come on the Hong telling you it people. Suzy documentary is his my time. And I I want you to make it just for the soundtrack alone I know. Can you imagine how great that would be? I listen to disco fever on Alexa because that station is a laugh. A minute and such good bangers on Gonna I'm GonNa totally listen to that and kind of Also have you seen the movie Detroit Rock City? No you need to see that tonight. Why because it's just great and so funny and also talk about that. It's like the battle between there's like a whole book the battle between and and like and rock and roll and you'll just love the movie and I think it's a movie it was like is people missed out on how great this movie was. It's hilarious the opening scene alone. The end the okay Anyway Dahlia do a poll where we find out what other people think is the quintessential disco disco tune of all time. Yeah not not even best but just like what quintessentially representative of the genre. Because that's why I picked my son because I feel like it encompasses the whole like. It's yeah yeah yeah. Oh yes okay. I have guests on today. Did a great book called Hunting Whitey. The inside story of the capture and killing of America's most wanted crime boss about Whitey Bolger. Oh Wow do you remember when they found Whitey in Santa Monica? Are you privy to this? It rings a bell. But it's so like I don't know any of the details. Yeah no well. Why is this notorious Boston? Crime boss Guy who was sort of the last of that era. Where you know a Goodfellas type stuff. Yeah and he went on the run and was on the run for years and years and years and most people were like is he. Dead is he just like never going to be caught. And then eventually he was caught in Santa Monica in little apartment with his girlfriend and Went to jail and then was killed in jail Not surprisingly but when he was I think he was ninety or something. Whoa he was an old man by the time he was in prison. And then they like beat him with a roll of quarters in an old man and not like. I don't know why you're like excluded from like you. Know right off limits their offline but come on I know but he had a lot of enemies of course and when he was caught it came to light that all that time he had been an informant to the FBI. Oh no wonder he. Yeah okay yeah sounds and he had killed people for doing that so oh you know ooh or not happy and it's just crazy that yeah want to hear all these stories right like that. This guy was doing the very thing that he claimed was against his. Moral Code it was. I loved the book because it describes sort of like how he like his undoing and they talks about how a lot for a lot of Male criminals on the run the way to find them is through the the women. I was totally going to guess that they can't resist. Yeah and he like put on this whole show all these years like both while he was still in Boston and when he was on the run of like being a super nice guy like vein Berry Charitable. You know how. Sometimes they do that where it's like. They Murder People. But then they like have these other morals where it's like you help people that are poor or somehow balancing upscale like a will. I can do this but I did. All this good stuff over here. Yeah wow interesting but the craziest part about the book. The thing that kind of made headlines before I read it was that when he was he was originally in prison in years prior in Alcatraz and during that time the government performed experiments on prisoners soul my God and they gave him does after dose after dose of LSD. All my God. This story keeps getting more and the consequences of that are that for the rest of his life. He had insomnia paranoia all this stuff and it was never been really brought up at his trial. Wouldn't you use that if you defense attorneys saw I mean? I don't know if it had any impact rain. Scans and all. Oh my God. This is fascinating interesting anyway. Rate Book if you like. True crime If you just like a page Turner Hunting Whitey by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge The inside story of the capturing killing of America's most wanted crime boss. It's such a great read. They do a wonderful job of unpacking the complexities of human condition relationships morality. All this stuff. That it's my motor running. And I think you guys will love it and I loved interviewing so. Let's welcome them to the show. Casey and Dave sellers so freaking. Love Your Book for starters hunting why it was so fun to read and I guess I wanted to start with how you're feeling about promoting a book of this weird moment and if you're sad at all are you feel good about. It's still feel really good about it because we're very proud of the book and this is the way to reach our audiences right now. Virtually in Bayreuth while we don't feel good about his not having that direct connection to our readers right there. Yeah I mean for each of our books especially this one it would be nice to have a big launch event. You know we. We had some plans like New York Boston one. La We may still do that. No as time goes on. But it's it's tough to not be able to meet and greet people talk to them face to face but I think we're all experiencing that in our lives everywhere. Soak thankfully we have zone. I mean it's better than nothing for sure. I just always feel bad when I interview authors now because they toil away so long and now supposed to be the fun part where people are consuming it and enjoying it and you can interact. So it's sort of a letdown. Shore you know everybody's either binge watching their favorite television show or they're reading so you know there is a benefit there all right. We'll focus on this the silver linings and I do hope people check out your book now since we all have a little more time in hopefully are consuming more books hunting Whitey. The inside story of being killing of America's most wanted crime boss. What the heck do you think is so A fascinating about Whitey in particular that. He's he captured our imagination for such a long period of time. What was it about this guy? I think he was the last of a dying breed. Roy The last American Godfather in that you know classic sense and is a great air of mystery. Amas well because For several years before the final finally tracked him out. And we're you guys sort of Following the story all along before he was even found or did this come into your mind after he was captured notification. I'm report is in Boston for twenty years and Casey was at the CBS affiliate Air Moss. And I was at the Boston Herald. So we both had covered the Whitey bulger case off and on for twenty years and like I said it's just captured the imagination. I think no one ever thought he was going to be caught in the fact that he was caught in California Santa Monica Kind. Hiding in plain sight only added to his mystique and it made everyone. Think what you've been doing for sixteen years you know and it also brought the story to the entire country where you know. It's not just the Boston store. You know. He lived in New Orleans. He was in Chicago. He was in Las Vegas and he lived in Santa Monica for a long time. And I think all of that together coupled with the The corruption in the FBI was involved in the early days the investigation all the police corruption. All mistakes made it just a fantastic mystery and we really took the time to unravel it. Tell the story in how he really came to meet his justice. When you guys were covering at during those years what did you think was going on. Did you think he was dead? Do you think is high certainly been Vicky was dead but it was almost like chasing big foot. He was there was a body out there somewhere. Then then it would have eventually turned up. You know as Dave mentioned you know we covered what you bulbs or the Nineteen Ninety s at the height of his our before he vanished but our college student at Boston University. I lived in South Boston. Right in the heart of Whitey. Bulger's territory right down the street from many of the people who in his gang. I met Whitey Bulger on occasion so there was this early fascination with this figure but then that that kind of law and the was destroyed because we realized what a real violent sophisticate criminal whiting balls. Early was yeah. What was your impression of him before he ran off to think this guy's evil or do you think it was just sort of like that. They had a different understanding of morality. Will I covered many of the cases that he was involved in before he went on the run and I just always thought he was. It was just complete mythology that he was this been. Evelyn gangster which was the image that was projected of him including by some members of the media. Boston he somehow protected Austin. It was good to the poor people and it was almost like a Robin Hood figure. I always knew as a reporter from covering that it was. It was not true at all. That was terrible. Human being that he had this reputation of assaulting women very very violent person no Koto morals whatsoever contrary to the public image of him. So do you think the the romanticizing of his charitable behavior was because is there was corruption or because they just like the idea that this guy wasn't as bad as some might say a good movie you know it was. It was a little both you know what? Baltimore is taking a patriotic. The deponent's playbook really doing things publicly for his community because it have to count on people to keep quiet when he needed when we covered him. Obviously there was again. It was a deconstruction of the myth of Whitey. Bolger this gentleman gangster and we really broke down who he was one of the parts. Susie that really fascinated us and I think it fascinates a public as well as that didn't work alone is brother Billy. Bulger was most powerful politician in Massachusetts. At the time so as Billy's a star began to rise at the Massachusetts State House Whitey Bulger Star also began to rise in Boston..
