Pirates Of The Carolinas
"When I asked a couple of my friends from Ireland to join us on the show to talk about their country's legends of fairies and benches and things that go bump in the night. They were a little reluctant at first I thought it was because they didn't want to appear superstitious or maybe out of date. And that's what they wanted me to believe. But I wonder if they weren't just a little afraid. Coming up today on travel with Rick Steves we hear how the Irish comedy tells they grew up with very folk lurking in their surroundings in their testing their luck right now by making an exception to talk openly about it with us. We'll also explore San Francisco's legends of Ghost sightings from Al Capone on Alcatraz to a grieving mother who still wonders Golden Gate Park? Let's start with some wild tales of historical characters from the coasts of North and south. Carolina. Terrence Zip key is brought to life thirteen notorious pirates in her book pirates of the Carolinas. She relates stories of ships weighted down with gold crews too drunk on rum to fight treacherous colonial officials, mutineers, privateers, and the sad end of the line for the pirates who got caught. White Barents thanks for joining us. Hi, thanks for having me. Give us some background on this. What was the golden age of piracy in the United States? Well, we really don't know how long piracy's been around It's been around at least twenty, five, hundred years they are, and there was an era during its hey day that was known as the golden age piracy, and that was the light seventeenth century to early eighteenth centuries and The United States it'd be colonial America. It was colonial. America. When they came over here and Interesting Carolina had a lot of the officials had partnerships with the pirates. We were sort of commerce poor place back then. So we actually welcomed pirates like blackbeard until they had the big crack down on piracy and that was the end of that. So is it kind of the fine line between a privateer and pirate? What's the difference? It was such a fine line rick and basically a little piece of paper because a lot of the pirates started out they were privateers. And they were involved in Queen Anne's war wars all over Europe and everything, and they were commissioned to attack enemy ships in order to get money to get booty to help fund the war and they split the money with the crown. So yes. So the the king or the governor would say you are licensed to attack ships as long as they're not our ships and you p half the booty, but you gotta give the rest to us. So we can fight war whatever right and so then imagine when the war is over and your navy is no longer needed. All these men I've ever known. There's no employment. You know it was a fine line anyway between privateer and pirate. So a lot of them just became officially pirates and they got to keep everything. Nice business model. So, now, what was the basic action? It was mostly ships going from Europe to the Americas or where did they get their best opportunities at that time? That was all these merchant ships that were doing these trade routes and so you could just sort of sit out there. It was just like fishing and just block them off. They weren't very well armed or anything they were slow because they were big heavy. Ships with a lot of merchandise onboard now also, and it really didn't matter. This is one of those falsehoods that people realize people thought pirates just want gold and pieces of eight. But the truth is that they wanted what they could sell when they got these merchant ships and they had all these realms of fine linens and silks and tobacco and rum, and all this was this was pay dirt so they would. Get this stuff, and then they would go to the next port and just like you see when you travel a lot people stealing stuff off of ships and setting up a little stand and selling a cheap absolutely, and that's what they did like a lot more in partnership with the authorities here and so when they came into port and all that they would look the other way and then they would get A. Cut for looking the other way and the merchants would get discounted goods. The pilots would get money I mean everybody was happy sounds like a win win win lose situation I'm rick this is travel with Rick Steves speaking with Zip in her books called pirates of the Carolinas. We always think pirates of the Caribbean and your book is pirates of the Carolinas. Why was there so much pirate action and the Carolina? coast. Well at that time, these were pretty poor state. So we needed to get commerce wherever we could. So pirates were good for business. So we saw there were a safe haven for pirate in fact, blackbeard who was one of the probably the biggest chapter discussed in this book, he actually set up shop actually made a home and actually came part of the community and all up and north. Carolina.

Jay Beever, Embraer, and Designing Luxury
"Jay. You're an interesting guy because your proof that talent and innovation can cross pollinate different professional fields. But let's start at the beginning talk about cars. Where'd you start such a fun story? I. Think there is something that can benefit a lot of people because sometimes we have a mentality that we can't do something if we're not trained or degreed in a certain skill set in that regard I always had a dream of being a car designer automotive designer it started because of my own Ed Richter and his wife k they own studebaker. Rare student bakers like the Rock, any Newt Rodney the famous Nordic football coach and that particular studebaker in thirty two and thirty three head a version with a rumble seat. The back of the seat would open up and you can sit back there. Well, he owns one original condition. They still drive it to this day and I remember as a child going to their home and peaking in the garage and not only was the rock. Ni there. But hiding around the corner three cars wide a commander in another student bigger from thirty three in disheveled but yet al capone gangster looking. Need to be restored in the Shadows Bee's, and it was inspiring and he has since restored that commanders well, beautiful cars that led to a journey of understanding Raymond lowy and his influence with the star liner and and everything else that he did outside of automotive everything from the coke bottle two steamships, the example of cross industry designed capability, and how they can learn from each other. So those automobiles and being so enthralled with the shapes and forms and the mysterious nature of them. Of course, because they are stuck in a garage was always a thrill being in the big three capital. Detroit suburbs knowing some ankles at work for the car companies and my mother worked for crain communications and she was a key line artists which was related graphic design page layout for making magazines back before digital publishing back when we had use razor blades and wax I've got some razor blades stories she would come home that's the articles in the early days of graphic storytelling, pie charts, and that stuff before the Mac really did it well, for us I got to watch all that and it was all related automotive interesting thing was like billing model airplanes World War Two model airplanes. Give me a B seventeen, b twenty, nine, b twenty, four I would recommend them get another kit and build it again, sometimes melt holes in the side of the single to a bottom of. So aerospace was like the carnal thing inside waiting to come out, but it was going to be cars. So I did I ended up in the car business I used to take my mom's take from those key lining page layout days with exacto blades in Pinstripe, my nine hundred and fifty seven Chevy matchbox car, and that was six years old playing with exacto blades if you can imagine that. Better than matches I guess. But maybe not much. Those, always stayed with me. So from graphics, you can make something look different to designing a car. All of this is really about transportation design being thrilled with things that move. So that was kind of the start of it, but I couldn't afford Zion College I would have loved to have gone to CCS, I spent a couple of summer classes in graphic in other types of designs like pottery, Constanza, pottery as. A kid but it's learning POW powdery Auto Detroit on the why am I being exposed to this? But then there's incredible community college in mccomb county they're outside Detroit and they had a great drafting program. My opportunity to get into the big three was through drafting go. This is great. Fell in love with in high school, and now I can have a career doing this. So went into drafting CAD design hired. At Ford, Motor Company in Nineteen ninety-three as an intern doing cad purity aided design drafting and three D. modelling, and that's when that stuff was really just coming on board it used to be guys had to draw. So you were at the forefront of that new technology in many ways going back to the drawing real quick I think the thing that helps the most even to this day is understanding what A. French curve can do and a large spine. One of my projects at the college was to create an body car, GM car body side, and three different views, projecting the points in three different orthographic views and make the arc continuously perfectly smooth accelerated curves were necessary in all of us so that you could inevitably put that on aluminum plates that was a hard way to go but it was fun. So then. We get into Ford and they had their own homegrown computer system called the PG S and that was done on these lundy tubes that were tube TV's really with light pens and we stroke the light pens on the screen and rotate things around, and there's a little keyboard tracking our time talk about ours disappear quickly when you're building things I couldn't have thought I could of ended in a better career exam. Making something from nothing into three D. and having it show up on the road someday. So I really liked that approach to design design engineering though I hadn't had the opportunity to actual industrial designer transportation design school like you'd find in Pasadena Arts Center or
How One Block Got Through It
"Over the past five months small businesses in America have been undergoing a mass extinction event. Bars are closed restaurants or half empty and retail is shuttered. Full blocks are slipping away. I wanted a sense of how this is playing out in the city I live in. CHICAGO. Not The one off story of a beloved are not the frightening toll in national statistics I wanted the story of one block. So I went to seventy fifth street in the Chatham neighborhood in the heart of Chicago outside. This. Part of the South side is really pretty. There are huge street trees flowers on the steps of the bungalows brick two flats al capone used to live in one of them. Many corners have signs from block looks setting the rules of the road. No loud music no car repair watch out for children playing. Even middle class parts of the side commercial corridors have struggled. redlining big box stores, job loss and black flight have left them full of vacancies. There are signs for businesses that have been gone. So long their phone numbers don't have area codes signs for furniture stores, nurseries, food markets, stores that sold beepers. which is what has long made this stretch of seventy fifth street, just east of South, Michigan, Avenue Standout, and what makes it stand out? Even during the pandemic. There's a handful of hair salons and barbershops. There's a dentist and a daycare. There's a cycling Ju. We're one day I visit. The DJ is wheeling bikes onto the sidewalk for afternoon classes. A little bit nervous, south. Arm. Being. There is a cult favorite, vegetarian joint Zoll Veg, which always has a line inside and if famous barbecue joint limbs, which always has a line outside. Large To dry cleaners where the pressed uniforms of Chicago police and transit workers hang under plastic and a Taylor who says online ordering suits him just fine. To never going to stop because you combat it fit to perfect. You're going to need some ultra and that's why. There's a deli run by an ex COP. I went there cover in plain clothes they know who I was and I got to a fight. So, as may have started the fight, my gun thought of mine waste and me and a guy is literally fighting for this pistol. There's a bakery, a frame shop and Francis Cocktail Lounge. The Bar has been here since December thirty first nineteen, sixty five muhammed leads to drop by Michael Jordan too. So we are the Regal. Beagle. You don't know three's company. So a lot of people, it is the neighborhood where everybody knows your name and we're able to have people come out and have cocktails on the front. So that has really seemed to. Help us excuse me you got to mass. Need, you have on the bads. Jada Wilson turnball runs the place with her cousin who's mother founded it. If you can't tell, she used to be an assistant principal at a Chicago Public School can't you put on your mask plays. Thank you. So, much. Appreciate you. Working with children really got me ready for this. One reason I picked this stretch of seventy fifth street was because it seemed on paper like exactly the kind of place that would have struggled to get through the pandemic stretch of black owned family businesses in a city that has been hit hard by. COVID. Nineteen. But what I found was not what I expected. Mid July virtually every business on seventy fifth street had reopened after the initial shutdown. Some were just getting by, but many of them said in spite of everything that they were doing. Great. I'm Henry Bar and this is the final episode in our series on the future of the during and after covid nineteen. Today, on the show, one block on Chicago's south side tries to get through the storm.
Pirate Myths and Mysteries

Pirates did make other pirates and English Spanish ship captains walk the plank pick up any book on the Golden Age Pirates. Sixteen fifty to seventeen thirty and it would have you believe that they sailed the Atlantic but in fact when the English began actively pursuing what they call privateers and hanging entire crews many fled attempting to sail around Cape Horn.

Pirates formed egalitarian. Orders based on elected officials and mutual trust. They did make some crews of captured vessels walk the plank in eighteen twenty two captain of the British ship. Rudd poll was made to walk the plank when his ship was captured by the pirate ship. Emmanuel before turning himself in Captain Kidd buried his treasure somewhere on long island also around area will discuss Madagascar.

The Spanish Treasury Cross Pacific from Alka Poco laden with gold and silver had been caravan across the isthmus there from there. They sailed to new Spain at the time Manila unchallenged until sixteen ninety nine. It was late in that year. That the five masted pirate ship made the run around Cape Hope captain by check Berryman. The Spanish treasure galleon left behind by the rest of the Spanish fleet was just ten days out of port of Al Capone sailing. Lazy five knots for Manila when they were intercepted by another vessel when the peach pulled within five hundred yards of the Galleon and unfurled the Jolly Roger and fired. Twenty two cannon on the heavily Laden. Gallia well that was all it took without hesitation. Captain Fernandez de the Tinian unloaded his sixteen cannons in response and beat a hasty retreat up the coast of North America. No Vashem's speed for the gold. Silver she carried the San. Jose couldn't lose the peach. A Jose carried eighty pounds of gold twenty-six tons of unkown silver and four hundred thousand pesos. For ten days with a damaged rudder Santellien led the peach on a wild chase up. The coast of North America finally anchoring off a rugged coast the captain of peach saw his chance sailed to within a hundred yards the guy and for best effect of short range cannons and let fire twenty two guns in a final show of defiance.

Kingpins Daily: Eliot Ness
"Times but in his nineteen fifty. Seven book the untouchables. Ness reveals a more vulnerable side of himself. One that suggests that even the most by the book offices questioned the very rules they enforce. He wrote doubts race through my mind as I consider the feasibility of enforcing which the majority of honest citizens didn't seem to want the law of at Ness was referring to was the eighteenth amendment to the United States Constitution. I ratified in January. Nineteen nineteen it banned the manufacture sale and transportation of intoxicating liquors and incited the prohibition era for those unfamiliar. It's important to note that Americans didn't just wake up with a hangover and empty liquor cabinets. They had the opportunity to prepare for prohibition and prepare they did many acted like Frat boys before a big snowstorm. They hoarded alcohol. And why shouldn't they? There was absolutely no promise that the storm of prohibition was going to pass any time soon. In fact they were politicians. Like Senator Morris Sheppard of Texas essentially telling people the pigs would fly before it ended. Needless to say there were stockpiles of liquor everywhere and by everywhere we mean in the cellars of those who could afford it. How were they able to purchase these now? Illicit goods simple the eighteenth amendment was poorly written as we said it banned quote the manufacture sale and transportation of intoxicating liquors. It failed to mention whether alcohol was illegal to consume and it didn't define what in the good hell intoxicating meant so without parameters to enforce any law. Authorities like Eliot Ness. We're left twiddling their thumbs. Enter the VOL- Stead Act in nineteen twenty it defined intoxicating liquors any substance containing point five percent alcohol or more for perspective. That's one tenth. The average can of beer of course higher proof substances could still be manufactured and sold for practical applications like medicine cleaning and religious sacraments e there were loopholes and whether loopholes there are people abusing said loopholes for profit. Which is exactly what happened. The reason prohibition caused mind speakeasy as Pianos flappers and booze is because alcohol didn't go anywhere. In fact during prohibition consumption increased by an estimated sixty to seventy percent it just moved from the free market to the black market from being a stable of the American home to being. Contraband as it did. The line between crime and leisure became incredibly blurred which led to some very lucrative and suddenly criminal enterprises. Elliott's ness the man in charge of enforcing prohibition laws in all this mess in Chicago. No less the home of notorious mob. Boston bootlegger Al Capone Aka scarface. Ness worked for the Prohibition Bureau from Nineteen Twenty Six all the way to the end of prohibition in Nineteen Thirty Three. In that time he was surrounded. By other prohibition who were accepting bribes in exchange for turning a blind eye to these illegal operations. Everyone was getting rich and they use this new ethical gray scale to justify their actions. It was after all just alcohol. Who is it hurting? Really like said the majority of honest citizens didn't even want the law ness wasn't the delusion that any person who chose to imbibe where criminals but at the same time there were men like Al Capone men who were undoubtedly criminals and from between those two extremes sprung doubt and the fact. That ness had doubts is important. It's a shame that history frequently ignores that chapter of his story too often. He's relegated to a trope. The unflinching leader of the untouchables. A team of agents that upheld the law at all costs but the truth is much more complicated than that. What misunderstood was the good and bad can exist on both sides of the law. Yes Eliot Ness would one day help take down. Al Capone a man responsible for the deaths of many innocent lives. But prohibition had more victims than those men victims whose stories are often forgotten the poor the ones that we're most held accountable by the laws of prohibition simply because

I was hoping when we discuss heating especially in the fact that winter's here I mean it's not Chicago but a winter on the Water Jim. I'm sure you can imagine Mr Capone. Your inmate mate number is eight five. You may step back in line. I Yes sir. Oh an AL warden. Johnston will do quite nicely. Alcatraz was no Cook County jail from the second. Al Capone arrived their warden. Johnston saw to it that he would not receive any special rights or privileges whatsoever. Capone held out but eventually he admitted it looks like Alcatraz has got me licked. But that wasn't the only only thing eating Al Capone remember that syphilis contracted back in his early Chicago days when he was working as a brothel. Bouncer turns out in all those years. He never bothered to seek treatment on during capone's time in prison. It seemed like the disease was finally catching up to him. Wallet Alcatraz he started exhibiting advanced symptoms among them dementia in Paris. Doctors decided to try treating him with malaria injections figuring the malaria would wipe out the syphilis but instead the treatment nearly we killed him outright. You know if I had to guess at a cure for syphilis induced malaria probably not have been my first choice probably not even my tents by the time capone was released east from prison in late. Nineteen thirty nine. He was a shell of the man. He had once been immediately after his release. He spent several months at a Baltimore hospital receiving treatment for syphilis and in the following years he was one of the first patients to receive penicillin as a treatment for the disease. But after all this time the damage had already been done when capone was examined in nineteen forty six by his physician and a Baltimore Psychiatrists. Both doctors concluded that Al at that point had the the mentality of a twelve year. Old Child Capone lived out his final years on Palm Island in Florida with his wife and family before dying of of a stroke on January twenty fifth nineteen forty seven and he was forty eight years old in less than half a century. Capone completely redefined organized denies crime and cemented the image of the mobster in popular culture forever not to mention that between his soup kitchens and his frequent acts of charity for the neediest members. Brazil community he practically invented public service and Capone's downfall may have been undignified but that isn't part of his story. That endures in the public memory. Bring to Americans he remains larger than life scarface public enemy number one. Chicago's very own Robin Hood..

"Capone excelled at using violence and bribery. To get what he wanted across the board will not just in business but in politics as well back when Toria was still in charge he and capone had used every dirty trick. They knew to take over the town council of Cicero Illinois which was a suburb outside of Chicago. After the purportedly incorruptible Democrat William e Denver was elected mayor of Chicago in Nineteen twenty-three. The outfit moved most of their operations to CICERO. Both to remove themselves from their gang-land rivals. More on that later and to regroup in an environment armant where they faced less political pressure but establishing the Chicago outfit's base of power in Cicero came at a terrible cost for the capone clan. Please don't hurt me hurt you my good man. I'm out here trying to protect you. All I WANNA do is make sure you vote in your best interest but how do you you know what my best interest. Let me put it this way. What's your name son Paul? My Name is Paul Nice. Nice to meet you Paul and you live right here in Cicero. Don't you. Well sure I do just around the corner well then your best interests or whatever. My brother wants Mr Capone. You can call me now. Who the hell is that? After Denver where was elected mayor of Chicago Capone got to work outfitting cicero with the usual array of speakeasies brothels and gambling dens which men getting city manager Joseph Joseph Z Klina on their payroll in nineteen twenty four rolled around. AL decided. It was time to make sure Clinton became mayor of CICERO. Trouble is local. Democratic politicians didn't want to let the race go without a fight list didn't sit too well with Ou- so he tasked his older brother Frank who was by now a trusted and high ranking member of his brothers criminal operations with keeping order and frank relish. The assignment on the day of the primary election in April of nineteen twenty four frank. Thanks sent a wave of terror washing over the voting age population of CICERO. He led an assault on a rival candidates campaign office ultimately having nine campaign pain workers detained more like kidnapped until voting had ended as far as the voters themselves were concerned. Frank sent gang members with machine guns to polling places says across CICERO in order to make sure everyone voted right. Well now that was thoughtful of him of course all this chaos and intimidation outraged the citizens of CICERO and by late afternoon the Chicago PD sent about seventy plainclothes officers to Cicero to help. Maintain order around dusk. One One Sergeant William Cusak was patrolling the city when they spotted frank and a few of his flunkies at polling station on Cicero Avenue. Twenty Second Street Cusak and his squad squad pulled up at the polling station and started walking over when the police swear frank shot I but I- witnesses claimed the gangsters never even opened fire fire either way frank capone was fatally shot in the showdown at the end of the day. Though it didn't make a difference out capone's candidate. Joseph Z. Clinton was elected mayor of CICERO and from that point onward Cicero was effectively known as the capital of capone land which isn't to say that capone had given up on Chicago. Oh in fact. It was largely because of capone support that the Republican candidate William Hale Thompson beat out diverse bid for reelection in nineteen twenty seven no personal vendetta whatsoever on Capone's part I'm sure in fairness Tomson went over a lot of people by promising to reopen illegal saloons. Across the city capone may have been the top guy profiting from bootlegging but he was rich for a reason. Chicago wanted booze. And lots of it as Al.. Like to say when I sell liquor. It's cold bootlegging when my patrons serving on Lake shore drive it's called Hospitality Thompson won the nineteen twenty seven mayoral election and Capone Cohn continued to support him on the day of one primary election in April nineteen twenty eight capone's in-house bomber James Belcastro even targeted voting booth scenarios where Thompson's opponents were expected to win that day became known as the pineapple primary unfortunately not in honor of wine pizza or pineapple upside down on cake. Thanks for making me hungry Carter. No in the nineteen twenties. Pineapple was actually a slang term for a hand grenade and still ordering online pizza tonight but as brutal Ertl is that day was the bombings resulted in the deaths of at least fifteen people it paled in comparison to the nineteen twenty nine saint. Valentine's Day massacre in many ways as the massacre was seen as the apex of Capone's criminal career. But the truth is we're not even sure if he was involved in fact most people don't even know exactly exactly what happened that day in a word. The Saint Valentine's Day massacre was brutal. Mass shooting in which a car full of men dressed up like cops drove up to a garage is operated by Capone's biggest gangland rivals and slaughtered. All eight of the men inside Eh. Great the first. We was having such a nice morning to all right boys up against the wall. A lot of you and don't look behind you. What are you doing now? We gotTA GET OUTTA here. Come on boys let's move. Oh my God frank come on to know me bring. Yes your search leftist. I won't talk talk. Come on frank you gotTa let me help Luzenberger. I know we had our differences. You and me but right now I'm on on your side for once big guy I promise you just got to trust me right now. Okay cops did it. You're telling when meat okay. Fine how many frank I mean what did they look like. Do you remember the car they were driving for. God's Sakes love to get me to a hospital will return to our story in just a moment now back to the life of Al Capone. You know the funny. The thing about the saint. Valentine's Day massacre is that everybody thinks of it as the apex of capone's reign of violence in Chicago but the truth of the matter is nobody could ever confirm capone even had anything to do with it. Here's what we know on the morning of February Fourteenth Nineteen twenty nine a big black cadillac rolled up to garage on Clark Street tone by the gangster. Bugs Moran on there are seven guys inside the garage. Five of Miranda's gangsters their faithful but relatively clean knows mechanic and an optometrist. Named Reinhardt Schwimmer. Now Schwimmer wasn't a tough guy in any way he just liked to hang around the Moran Gang so he could brag about his connection to the criminal underworld. He picked a bad day to be a brown. noser that's for sure so this cadillac rolls up to the garage and four or five men get out of the car. According to the I witnesses the driver wore a fancy for top coat and grey Fidora to others were wearing police uniforms. This wasn't a routine cop. Stop these men were packing. Heat specifically to submachine guns and a twelve gauge shotgun. The visitors forced all seven men in the garage against the wall and opened fire. The killers piled back into the Cadillac and sped out of the neighborhood. Six of the men in the garage died then in there. The last guy local goon named Frank. Gutenberg was still alive by the time Sergeant Thomas J Loftus arrived on the scene. Despite being shot fourteen times goosen. Berg was able to hang on long enough to Croak Croak out and accusation cops cops did he died on route to the hospital as soon as the press. Found out what happened. News of the massacre went national Shnell. And the first name on everybody's lips was Al scarface capone now. That was a pretty reasonable conclusion. Out led the biggest crime syndicate in Chicago after after all and the victims of the massacre worked for Bugs Moran. Who was bugs Moran you ask Oh just the leader of the north side gang in case you've forgotten it was the north side gang that tried to put a hit on capone's old mentor Johnny? Torio after their leader Dino Banyan was murdered in his own flower shop rumor has it capone engineered the massacre as a way of snuffing out. Miran once and for all. And there's a decent amount of circumstantial evidence to support this conclusion for one thing. Some of Capone's guys has had rented an apartment across the street from the garage on Clark Street where the massacre occurred but the details. Get money pretty quickly for starters in December of nineteen. twenty-nine police searched the home of bank robber named Fred Killer Burke in connection with a different case and found a huge arsenal of guns in his possession including putting the guns that were used in the saint. Valentine's Day massacre but it's hard to say whether that counts as evidence for capone or against him exactly.

"A high ranking. Soft touch not when there was so much money to be made so Torio invited Frankie Yale to Chicago on May Eleventh Nineteen Twenty. Frankie Yale killed. Big Jim Colosimo with rumored help from capone and and after that Johnny Torio inherited big Jim's illicit empire that was when the bootlegging began when capone goes to Chicago ahead of his family. To`real you put him to work as a bouncer in a brothel where he soon contracted syphilis. Oh poor wife. She stood by him though to the very end to the end is right. Capone wouldn't find out he had syphilis until decades later at which point it was too late to reverse the damage already done by the disease. But we'll get back to that later. We'll return to our story in just a moment now. Back to the life of Al Capone mm-hmm when capone got to Chicago. It didn't take long for Torio to recognize how valuable capone could prove to be between Capone Street smarts and the bookkeeping the skills he picked up in Baltimore. His arrival in Chicago offered an opportunity for Toyota. Really take things to the next level. Problem is Toro kind of invented. The term arm low profile and capone couldn't define subtle. If you gave them a dictionary he developed a reputation pretty quickly for drinking and mischief-making at what point point even drunk driving right into a parked taxi. Toria pulled some strings at City Hall to get capone off the hook but he knew he had to do something to get capone to simmer simmer down so he sent for Capone's family to join him in Chicago. Oh he called the wife low blow maybe but it worked once his wife and kids arrived arrived. Capone cleaned up his act at least temporarily and soon Torio was rapidly expanding his reach across Chicago as the new leader of the Chicago outfit with components his right hand man before long. The Chicago outfit was the biggest organized crime syndicate in the city. But that doesn't mean they didn't have competition. The outfit was allied with Jenna. Brothers whose number one rivals were Dino Banyans north side Gang Torio was wary at the prospect of an all out gang war so under his direction the outfit and the north side gang formed a fragile alliance until Oh Banyan Cheated Torio out of half a million bucks bucks and got him sent to prison. Yikes now tell me about it later. That year in the fall of one thousand nine hundred twenty four o'bannon was murdered in his flower shop. Nope wait you're telling me this hardened murderous Chicago gangster spent his days running a flower shop. Apparently the guy had a real knack for floral arrangements. In any event abandons death led to the very gang war Torio had been trying to avoid and on January twenty fourth nineteen twenty five the north siders ordered a hit. ontorio Torio Johnny. You can't just quit on me. You got not so much delivering. No kidding I got so much to live for Al enough for the dramatics already going to Italy not dying but Johny think of what we could do to Chicago. Think of what the outfit could become A. Oh It's all yours how me I'm quick. Put Europe for me by some miracle. Torio survived the assassination attempt. But by the time he recovered he was sick of Chicago. And and so at the end of nineteen twenty five. Johnny Torio resigned from organized crime and moved his family to Italy. Leaving Al Capone Age Twenty six in charge of the Chicago outfit mob boss at Twenty six years old. Wow now I feel like a real under achiever. Capone took to his new role like a duck to water almost as if you'd just been waiting for Toyota hand him the reins he liked nice. Things system suits gourmet food. The finest cigars money could buy and even more than that. He liked being a public figure. He went to City Hall pretty much every day. Wasn't he worried they were going to arrest him. Everyone knew he was a crime boss. Yeah but on what grounds the Chicago outfit. Put the organized in organized crime. There wasn't anything to arrest him for not without proof many way exactly for one thing. The Chicago outfit had moved their base of operations to the nearby suburb of CICERO. Back in one thousand nine hundred thousand three. We'll circle back to that later. The point is with the bulk oke of their criminal dealings technically taking place outside the jurisdiction of the Chicago. PD there really wasn't much the police could do. And even if they had hard evidence it wouldn't exactly exactly have been a picnic pending any of it on capone as the top brass of the Chicago. Outfit he followed the same criminal philosophy as his old mentor. Frankie Yale they never get your hands too messy and if you need any heads cracked or kneecaps busted make sure you hire somebody else to do. The dirty work anyway. At that time arresting capone wasn't exactly GonNa win anyone over. Let's face it. The man knew how to work the crowd right. Yup One of the nation's first soup kitchens paid for strangers injures surgeries and gave jobs to the poor and needy in his community. Never mind that a lot of these jobs involved doing dirty work for the Chicago outfit. Which means they were technically? Technically illegal. Carter you gotTa make a living somehow. Within the world of organized crime capone's claim to fame was a little more sinister under his direction direction. The Chicago outfit expanded into a criminal. Enterprise that was raking in as much as one hundred million dollars a year and remember. This was nineteen twenties money. But that bump in revenue wasn't all power lunching and Boozy schmoozing. Al Capone's rain is Chicago's leading crime. Boss brought an unfor told the increase in violence throughout the city. Let's put it this way. If Capone wanted your establishment to buy liquor from him you refused him at your own peril. I'm telling you the best deals in town boozing that bad either and I'm telling you Mr Capone we don't run that kind of establishment. Here you sure about that. I'm afraid we must decline your. It's a very generous offer. Mr Capone we we just you know it's it's not for us you know. They say they took down a business proposition from AL capone is bad for your health. I'm I'm sorry sir. Oh well Joe Loss.

The police therefore took their frustrations out by constantly reading his whore houses in gambling. Dinh's capone went into hiding mm for three months during the summer but eventually he took a huge risk and gave himself up to the Chicago police. It proved to be the right decision as the authorities. Authorities did not have much evidence to charge him. Capone was once again a free man. Having made a mockery of the police and justice justice system. Ironically capone took on the role of peacemaker appealing to the other gangsters to tone down the violence. He even managed to broker an amnesty between rival gangsters and for two months. The killing and violence ceased but Chicago is firmly in the grip of gangsters and capone own appeared beyond the reach of the law. Soon infighting between rival gangsters escalated into street violence and frequent hijackings. Jacking of Capone's Whiskey transports became a big problem. One major thorn in the side of capone was Yale. Wants a powerful associate. He he was now seen as the main instigator of disruptions to capone's Whiskey business one Sunday afternoon Yale met his end with the first use of Tommy Armie gun against him. Capone also had to deal with rival gangster bugs Moran and his North siders gang who had been a threat for for years Moran had even once tried to kill capone's colleague and friend Jack mcgurn the decision by capone and mcgurn to avail themselves of Moran was to lead to one of the most infamous gangland massacres history. The Saint Valentine's Day massacre the one we all all know and have heard about exactly on Thursday February Fourteenth Nineteen Twenty nine at ten thirty in the morning morning Moran and his gang were lured by a bootlegger into a garage by Whiskey. mcgurn men would be waiting for them. Dressed in stolen police jason reforms. The idea being that they would stage a fake raid. mcgurn like capone made sure he was far away and checked into a hotel with his girlfriend when mcgurn men thought they saw Moran. They got into their police uniforms in drove over the garage in a stolen police car the bootleggers caught in the act lined up against the wall. mcgurn is men took the bootleggers guns and opened fire with two machine guns. All the men except Frank Duesenberg were killed outright in cold blood. The plane appeared to go brilliantly family except for one major detail Moran was not among the Dead Moran had seen the police car and took off not wanting to be caught up in the raid read. Even though capone was conveniently in Florida. The police in the newspapers knew who had staged the massacre Saint Valentine's Day massacre Kerr became a national media. Event immortalizing capone as the most ruthless geared smartest an elegant of gangland bosses even then while powerful forces were amassing against him. Capone indulged in one. Last Balletti Act of revenge the killing of two Sicilian colleagues whom he believed I had betrayed him capone invited his victims to a sumptuous banquet where he brutally pulverize them with a baseball bat. Capone had observed the whole tradition of wining and dining traders before executing them somewhat ironically. It was the pin pushers from the tax office. Who was deposed? The greatest threat to the gangsters bootlegging empires in May nineteen twenty seven. The Supreme Court. Ruled that a bootlegger had to pay the income tax on his illegal bootlegging business with such a ruling. It wasn't long before the small Special Intelligence Unit of the IRS. Under ELMORE IRA was able to go after Capone I love that the irs contracts and illegal business. I mean how do they know if they're paying in their taxes right. I mean it's illegal. Exact business itself is not gonNA report on. It just kills me but apparently it worked. I guess so. So capone left for Miami with his wife and son bought Palm Island state property that he immediately mmediately started to renovate expensively. This gave Elmer Iryh his chance to document. Capone's income and spending but capone was colaver every transaction. He made was on a cash basis. The only exception was the tangible assets of the palm island state which was evidence of a major source of income eventually capone's activities including the Valentine's Day massacre attracted the attention of President Berber Hoover in March nineteen twenty nine. Hoover asked Andrew Mellon his secretary of the Treasury. Have you got this fellow fellow capone yet. I want that man in jail. Millen set out to get the necessary evidence to prove income tax evasion and to amass enough evidence dents to prosecute capone successfully for prohibition violations Eliot Ness a dynamic young agent with the US Prohibition Bureau was charged with gathering the evidence of prohibition violations. He assembled a team of daring. Young men and made extensive use of wiretapping technology. While there was a doubt that capone could be successfully prosecuted for prohibition violations in Chicago the government was certain it could get capone on tax evasion in May nineteen twenty. Nine capone went to a gangster conference in Atlantic city afterward. He saw a movie in Philadelphia when leaving the cinema. He was arrested and imprisoned for carrying a concealed weapon. Capone was incarcerated in the eastern penetentiary. Three where he stayed until March sixteenth. Nineteen thirty he was later released from jail for good behavior. But was put on America's most wanted blissed which publicly humiliated mobster who so desperately wanted to be regarded as a worthy man of the people. I find it really interesting. That what got him was carrying a concealed weapon right after everything. He did not even tax evasion. Not The tax evasion just concealed carry so crazy yeah elmer iryh undertook a cunning plan to use undercover agents posing as hoods and Veltri Capone's organization. The operation took nerves of steel my friends despite informer ending up with a bullet in said before he could testify. Elmar managed to amass enough evidence through his detectives posing US gangsters to try capone opponent in front of a jury with two vital bookkeepers. Leslie Shiwei and Fred Reese who had once been in Capone's employment now safely under our police protection. It was only a matter of time before capone's days as public enemy number one were over. Agent S S. angered by capone for the murder of a friend managed to enrage capone by exposing prohibition violations to ruin his bootlegging industry. Millions ends of dollars of brewing equipment were seized or destroyed thousands of gallons of beer and alcohol had been dumped and the largest breweries or closed a march thirteenth.

Al Capone had a tax liability of thirty two thousand four hundred eighty eight dollars and eighty one cents. The jury returned an indictment against capone. That was kept secret until the investigation was complete for the years. Nineteen Twenty five to nineteen twenty nine and just so you guys snow if we were to put that into the inflation calculator that is equivalent to five hundred forty eight thousand eight hundred and two dollars today. Jesus that's a lot of money I mean. I wouldn't mind having that money me either but I wouldn't be taxed liable the grand jury later returned. An indictment against capone with twenty two counts of tax evasion totaling over two hundred thousand dollars. Capone and sixty eight members of his gang were charged with five thousand separate violations of the Vol- Stead Act. These income tax cases took precedent. Over the prohibition violations fearing that witnesses would be tampered with having doubts that the six year statute of limitations would be upheld by the Supreme Court. Ah Deal with secretly struck between Capone's lawyers and government. Prosecutors Capone was was to plead guilty to a lighter charge and would receive a sentence of between two and five years when word got out. The press was outraged outraged and campaigned against what they saw as a blatant whitewash. The overconfident capone who believed he would receive less than five years years in prison. became less cocky when he realized that his plea bargain was now known in Boyd on October. Sixth Nineteen thirty he won fourteen. Detectives escorted capone the Federal Court building. He was dressed in a conservative blue serge suit and was is without his usual. Pinky ring.

Hey many New York gangsters in the Early Twentieth Century three kings from impoverished backgrounds. But this was not the case for capone far from being a poor immigrant from Italy who turned to crime to make a living capone was actually from a respectable and professional family. His Father Gabriel was one of thousands of Italians who arrived in New York in eighteen ninety four. He was thirty years old educated and from Naples where he had earned a living as a barber. His wife Theresa was pregnant and already bringing up two sons. John's two year old son Vincenzo. An infant son Rafael the capone family lived near the Brooklyn Navy Yard. It was a tough place. Given given over to the FFICES sought by sailor characters that frequented the surrounding bars. The family was a regular law-abiding albeit noisy Italian American and clan and there were few indications that the young capone would venture into a world of crime and become public enemy number one. Certainly the families move to a more ethnically mixed area of the city exposed the young capone to wider cultural influences. No doubt equipping him him with the means to run a notorious criminal empire but it was capone schooling both inadequate and brutal at a Catholic institution be set within violence. That marred impressionable young man. Despite having been a promising student he was expelled at the age of fourteen for hitting a female teacher and he never went back at age.

"Capone's accountant remember Al Capone wouldn't have gone to jail if it wasn't for the meticulous accounting records that his accountant did there was it was all under coding and nobody wanted him to testify I well I should say the good guys wanted him to testify the bad guys even the bad guys in the police did everything they could to make sure he never testified Al Capone wanted him any place but on the witness stand because he was the only guy that could crack open all of it now he didn't want to testify against Al Capone he knew what that meant he's probably a dead man he didn't want to do it it wasn't necessarily on the side of the good guys but they finally got him to court and he testified but Al Capone never would have put his accountant forward right they they the Democrats you know I mean they want to shift was involved in this before hand they highlighted this guy as the whistle blower and if he's the guy that unravels all this why would they want to promote his profile why do people do stupid it's really stupid things cut congressional immunity is a good or a band aid on back and in passion when you are so when your only goal is destroyed destroying destroys made any cost destroy them when your passion is that high you make stupid mistakes why would Al Capone keep a detailed accounting record of who he was bribing how it was go out money going here to there why would you keep that in paper I am a I airlines yeah but I mean there's actually running a business right there's a reason is always ready and see yeah no I I agree so the DNC but like you could have easily instead of doing a whistle blower report to get this whole thing kicked off you could have lied to to the New York times and had them read article about this call and you would have had the ball rolling in that way that you all could been out public should probably we need these transcripts above all you've done all of that yes but you needed somebody to lodge the complaint with standing remember that's the whole whistleblower thing you have to logic with standing for a whistleblower complaint but I mean to get an impeachment done you you could have started this with a media report easily it could have brain but the whole idea is the whole idea with the Democrats has banned get somebody on the inside it's somebody who's on the inside there around him the whole time he's crazy he's dangerous that was that was part of this there's there's this guy he's I mean he's a career diplomat he's been around forever he's just a guy in the White House he was part of that phone call he heard it he was so upset about it and he's been here and other people that were so upset Wheeler weren't really necessarily a lot of people that were really upset they were on the phone call that you know he didn't even say there was quid pro quo when he first wrote his account there was no mention of quid pro quo until we met with Adam Schiff but let's let's let's back up for a second this guy I believe he is in danger but I believe that the Democrats have been saying this look he was the guy until five days after our chalkboard no I'm not I'm not suggesting to you that it that definitely is what did it but I do believe because I know everyone on Capitol Hill was talking about that chalkboard within the first couple of days of that chalkboard being out okay they watched it is groups so that got out what do they have this guy is center he was a missing piece that we didn't even know existed and if you remember we did the chalkboard five days later they're like don't worry about this guy yeah this guy might have political collection connection so don't you worry about this guy this guy we got another guy yeah I remember that and they just try to brush him off and bury him and I you said on the air who cares about another whistle blower we have the transcripts right but once you know the name of this guy and you can do your homework and see where he was position he's the smoking gun he is the smoking gun he's the guy in the center of all of this it even goes back to before the the inauguration his attorney now he was his attorney is the guy who in twenty seventeen not your aeration he starts talking about how trump has got to go is soon as in July of twenty seventeen he says I predict CNN is going to play a key role in the real Donald Trump not finishing out his first term as president we'll get rid of him and and this country is strong enough to survive him and even his supporters AS one falls meaning as as one person leaves the White House that is not on the side of Donald Trump as one falls to more will take their place he promised that a coup would occur in many steps the coup has though this is this is the at the whistle blowers attorney in twenty seventeen look has started first of many steps rebellion impeachment will follow ultimately the terrible attorney why would you be publicly tweeting these things will be later on because he said he tweeted this soon as the president took office he tweeted that C. I. A. employees should come to his law firm to lawfully challenge the new president so he was recruiting C. I. A. agents is like a the guy with the mess of the Leona commercial as well yeah do you have would you like to impeach this president we can help okay so that's who this guy is he's calling for CIA agents to come into his office who want to help get this president impeached that's AB and now you're radiation now the whistle blower happens to be a CIA agent he happens to be the guy who is that Joe Biden's side he's the guy who was in the oval office when Barack Obama was calling in all of the investigators in to Washington from Ukraine and having a very awkward meeting that even the good guy prosecutors all said was really weird basically they called us into Washington to see if we can help them find dirt on Donald Trump he was the guy who is at the embassy helping Chiluba he's in the White House organizing things with Chiluba this is the woman who was the one that coordinated and did all of the trump investigation who was the go between it appears between the Ukrainians and the fusion GPS and it's also a fried flour tortilla wrapped around each night sour cream let us write us right so now so now this is just a this is just a coincidence that he was you know that he was involved with all of these people it's a coincidence that he his attorney is talking about a coup and taking them out and plotting an impeachment it's also a coincidence that the day after Robert Muller is it closes his case and says there's nothing here the guy comes out and says I I've got a concern but doesn't say quid pro quo says I I'm gonna have a concern about a phone call really that's wow that's interesting and they immediately shift gears from molar to this guy he goes to Adam Schiff and then all of a sudden he has an attorney guess who shift sends him to this guy he now has an attorney and he includes quid quid pro quo and that's really the all of that is just a coincidence it's I mean I have a blow your mind here I don't think it is I yeah I mean I know it's weird it's almost as if they had a I mean I is there a doubt at this point that there are large amounts of people working not only for the left and Democrats but also just in the state department and other places in the government whose entire goal since Donald Trump took president was to make him not president anymore but I I don't because it really a doubt on that at all no right I mean like that's no clearly true and they you know they would probably say well we did a perk because of good reasons he was doing things that were a radic for the country and bad for the country blah blah blah okay whatever you can believe that if you want however the guy was elected president United States decoration trolls these things and if he controls these things it's your job to either support them or resign unless you believe something illegal is going on which some of them say there was an age did this whistleblower thing all that is fine but it's all inside of an obvious structure and movement within the government and within the Democratic Party to get this guy removed from office the second he was elected and that is you know that is a that's a good it's an undercurrent that can't be ignored so this whistle blower it is it is critical that this whistleblower makes it to open the witness stand and the cross examination is prepared to ask him about all of the things that he was doing in Ukraine because he's the Lynch pin he's the go between on all of these things on fusion GPS on the Joe Biden corruption on on all of it she is the accountant now the press I've never seen anything like it and it fell weird at the time as soon as they started talking about this whistle blower and they said well who is the whistle blower the minute that question was asked you're gonna get him killed you're gonna get him killed wait we're just wondering who he is you're gonna get him killed you're gonna get him killed you're gonna get killed you're gonna get him killed well now I know why this guy is more dangerous to the DNC then then Jeffrey Epstein if this guy is in protected not from the right but from the left this guy's gonna end up paying it himself with paper sheets while in custody this guy is the buried the body he knows all of it he's the tie between all of it he is the key to the massive corruption of the DNC and I don't think anybody wants to get into that now there there again saying that Donald Trump junior outed him and so Donald Trump junior is gonna get him killed believe me everyone on the right wants him to testify when you don't know his name and you see the connections and you watch Star special on Ukraine you know he's the most important person to put on the stand you want him alive you want him to testify I want him under protection of the Republicans not the Democrats because this guy knows where all the bodies are buried and if this guy testifies you're going to be able to pull his testimony apart and you'll see what's really going on and believe me believe me next Wednesday a week from yesterday we're gonna go through what's really going on what really happened in Ukraine we thought we knew no it's much worse than that it's much worse than that this guy I am telling you is in danger but he's in danger from the left and everyone on the right needs to protect this guy everybody in the right needs to make it very clear we want him to testify we want him alive and healthy and well rested because this guy must go on the witness stand I want to tell you about a special.

"Very quickly through prohibition but he's not the only supplier in town the north side gang led by Bugs Moran had been bitter rivals with Capone's just as Luciana warned capone's wild killing soon came to the attention of one of the most important people in America so when RAB is the author of five Families Capone's I beg fake blunder was his rivalry with bugs Moran he thought he had to eliminate the bugs Moran Gang so he could be if you want to call it the boss of bosses no competition in Chicago and he engineered he most probably engineered he's given credit I don't think he ever denied it he's given credit for the Saint Valentine's Day massacre in which so outrageous the idea that police car pull up in front of this warehouse which bugs Moran was used because his headquarters and the idea was to get book Miran and he's police officers came in and uniform fake police officers lined up these six victims and then signaled for the real gunman with Tommy guns to come in and mow down these poor victims now that was to of Regis that was his first big London he didn't understand the roaring twenties was ending and moreover there was a new president Herbert Hoover and his first thing was he was confronted by lines from coast to coast about massacre and about these outrageous activities in Chicago the local Chicago and Cicero Police Force had been bribed into compliance with capone even into tentative allies ship but this was not on a national scale and the massacre had garnered capone national attention so yeah yes capone control new control Chicago police department a lot of the politicians but he didn't control Washington or the federal agencies and who've is simply unleashed everything that he could including the IRS orders and Treasury Department investigates go out and get capone and they did the newly elected bird hoover couldn't let one of the United States is largest cities be run by gangsters he launched a special task force with one key mission capone well the president is outraged and decides than something has to be done now to make Chicago safe again added this leads to the strengthening of the FBI and the FBI was a different breed of animal because they weren't corrupted the FBI agents who were sent to Chicago to get capone weren't probable they were paid by the federal government and they had a different allegiance different loyal eighty they weren't locals and this man had been difference some of the gangsters tried to get the heat off they told the press capone's outfit was ending in the meantime it was decided capone would have to lay low Thomas Repetto is the author of American Mafia and inside Al has to disappear now there are a couple of ways to disappear Torio was there that story oh by then was working in the east L. you've gotta disappear now there's one way and you know what that is and that'll be the way or find a way to get yourself arrested there was safety in the one place no one would expect a notorious gangster to want to go ver massacre in the fleet and city and the mob said you gotta get out of public site so he went to Philadelphia and Gobs of arrested for carrying a gun so he went down to Philadelphia detective was happening to be destroyed asked when L. arrived detective had been a guest at Capone's in Florida a few weeks earlier but he just happened to be strolling by yourself carrying a gun I'm the boss never carries a gun we're waiting at the station to get him you plead guilty immediately you know boss do that you'd have a lawyer ah never convict the Guy Prison was the one place capone thought his rivals and the feds wouldn't touch him and far from the usual dink jail cell capone's position and money meant he was still living his comfortable highlife his stay in the Philadelphia Penitentiary was like a stay in a hotel or a rescuer of people waited on him hand and foot there everybody was corrupted and he had a very easy time there it was relaxing we pleaded guilty got a year in jail Philadelphia Chicago but it did not the federal government came after back in Chicago the FBI created a task force of special agents handpicked for being incorrupt bowl and fearless they were so clean cut ineffective they were quickly dubbed the untouchables the group was led by thirty-three-year-old Elliott yes and it's soon clear that capone couldn't buy them off that said that he put together a team of law enforcement agencies they call the untouchables and they were out to get capone but they weren't GonNa get him with via leads back in Philadelphia Sell it had been ten months since capone put himself in prison but now big AL was ready to head back to Chicago but when he returned he the government had dragged his reputations through the mud Al Capone was now public enemy number one when he went back Kogyo things weren't the same anymore he had to fight for his place in the sun and he was beginning to lose control of the phenomena that he had other gangs were moving in very quickly and so is the federal government and there was a sense that the lawlessness the check lawlessness of the prohibition era was beginning y down the obvious move for capone would've been to lie low once again but he couldn't resist the publicity so capone decided to organize his own charm offensive Lawrence Bergreen again Capelle decided to improve his public image by opening a soup kitchen check this was a symptom of the failing economy and you know the the boom nineteen twenties were ending the depression was starting many of the working man were his people were out of work so he wanted to play again the Robin Hood figure and so he wanted to feed them and not only that he wanted newsreel cabin has to come and see him feeding the working people taking care of them doing for them what the government wouldn't do so in he was placing himself above the government is a kind of unofficial protector of the ordinary working man of Chicago too many of whom he pinpointed to was an important employer people not just as gangsters but people who were involved some aspect of bootlegging maybe they stored the car is that the bootlegging maybe they were involved in the production of it they they had some something to do with it and if capone putting employ them they were I work capone to say that the real crooks weren't hustlers like him but stock market speculators but of course his intentions were always just to make himself look good capone was a narcissist to the Anthony had a distorted impression of reality so he saw himself as the center of almost anything that was going on and he felt that he was a force for good in the world or at least not harm and so he excused himself a all his crimes capone never really felt a sense of remorse for any of the criminal behavior associated with him he just felt he was doing what people wanted and becoming popular as a result capone said he was the good guy but the US government could beg to differ and during the heyday of the roaring twenties capone the character of road but a character suddenly instead of money flowing around everybody being wealthy this seemed to be no end to America's good agents the thirties the dirty thirty started now the dirty thirties was depression a lot of people out of work there were bred light soup kitchen agent and capone didn't look so interesting anymore who cared about his hundred dollar pair of Monte Grande socks while the way he dressed on that he now so he started trying to get his own public relations by opening a soup kitchen giving out turkeys at Christmas but it wouldn't play anymore and now he was going to be a victim because the first time instead of trying to pin the murder on him he made the fatal mistake of his lavish living working diligently behind the scenes federal agents had been building a strong case for tax evasion they were going to show that he didn't pay his taxes oh that was tough to do because capone didn't file tax returns and they didn't know how much money he earned obviously he earned a fantastic amount of but we're don't records so how did they prove how much she earned and therefore how much in the way of taxes he should have pain how did he afford this where was his income income tax more was relatively do in the US at that time a lot of people didn't pay taxes neither Al Capone and he started wondering and he got bad legal advice United States had recently made a ruling stating that illegally earned income was still subject to federal income ax and Amazingly Capone's lawyers agreed stating the amount he was willing to pay back taxes on the admittance was enough for the FBI to bring it to court they really had him they found one of his one of his accountants who who became a cooperative witness and some very smart auditor found one of his books that was another thing one of his other mistakes he liked the records of what both coming to him to make sure he wasn't being cheated so finally they had a good time they didn't get him for his gunplay any of his murders trainees racketeering they got him on income tax excavation something he had never anticipated audible.

Some of the hairiest of today's top decided. I was going to be a survivor driver. Survivor fights back he will board. They want new. It's America listening subscribed my new podcast modern rules on apple podcast the iheartradio iheartradio APP or wherever you get your podcast my favorite favorite hi. I'm Matt and I'm Brad. This is park land area and we are wrapping up our hot springs National Park episode talking about our favorite things the bark so do you want to go first. Do you WanNa talk about your favorite part of hot springs was. Do you want to talk about what your favorite part is shirt. I think I'm ready my favorite part of hot springs. I think there's probably superior about how the Bir yeah. It's just like the coolest thing ever. I've done it twice. Both times have been hot springs. It's the thing of return to. I just think it's the most unique thing for in every aspect the fact that it's the only brew within a National Park the only brewery in the world making beer like this with thermal water and it's just really like icing on the cake but the beer tastes really good because like all those aspects like Oh this is really coin unique but as a taste good and you're like maybe a lot of Hudson at first but they do really good. It's legit cool will and clean menu. You know it's not over the top and you know they have a lot of hurdles to go over because they're using that water source there in a historical buildings so like they have to be very careful on what they do and and what they've been able to overcome to make that food and those Beers uh-huh is truly amazing yeah and we have pretty high beer standards to like we I mean not only coming from Chicago where there's so many breweries and amazing mazing amazing beer so we were allocated to that kind of but also like in our travels to various cities and states like we go to a lot of breweries and have our favorite great things and this place definitely holds. Its own like it's worthwhile. It's a beer destination in and of itself. I think hot springs so it's actually kind of funny on that trip from Las Vegas North Carolina. We had to beer stops and we brought to different beer for the holidays. Yes this weird beer theme approach for us. I guess yeah we had broken bone marrow one of our favorite breweries and the the country Albuquerque Yup from Albuquerque New Mexico and they have some just great Great Beers but we picked up that we picked up the this beer and we brought it to my sisters and brother-in-law's soaking the all enjoyed it together which was nice you know after of course those having it there right yeah because that's the whole experience to it's like the beer is delicious and I would happily drink that anywhere but it takes it to a whole `nother level by drinking at superior. Bath House in these amazing historic confines with great service through. They're very friendly very accommodating and Dan happy to provide samples and tastes of the various beers because there's a lot there's like twelve or thirteen on tap so you wanna can sample things and like see what they have. I would say my favorite thing was definitely the bath house itself going into that and coming out like was just ah like you said earlier cloud nine on cloud nine. I left that I was on cloud nine for the rest of the day. even the next day like to be honest. I mean Sir happy. I was relaxed. I was relieved and I can definitely see were like the the native American indigenous people they came and use as those waters for healing because the way you feel when you get out of the now so that that was truly a beautiful yeah and that room I think we should also talk about that room a lot about our private bathroom because like the room itself is clearly very old and historic has this kind of well worn floor tile L. and tiles all all on the walls but the bath itself is very modern. The TUB seemed very modern like very sleek clean to person tub hub with these jets that are like very precisely manufactured to just sent temperatures and everything. It's very comfortable so it was really nice and then I I think we also had like this little like an actual Bell Raider case we needed service or like more basalt or something yeah through could ring ring little actual battle. I feel so comfortable bulls drinking that but I know I'm like no. That's not many I felt like I was calling for like a servant or something young and that's just not not for me we didn't we didn't use the bell no no but I was tempted. I didn't yeah so that was a good time and I'm so thankful. We did it a great little like road trek. Stop for the things I'd bring I would definitely bring an appetite and taste for beer good good beer. That'd be one thing I guess I would bring you and I would definitely bring like I. Ucf. Say a bathrobe but you know what they have enough to provide them for you. Yeah that's true the things that I would bring I guess would be maybe a bathing suit huge. I don't know if it's good especially if you're going to be taking a communal bath like come on. You're going to need that can't be naked. m- so bring that I would also suggest bringing. I mean again. Appetite related thing because I feel like this is such a wonderful food destination food and beverage destination. There's a lot of it and that's one of the benefits that come from being a little bit of an urban park. I got a good one for your third one. What what you need to bring a thirst for knowledge because of how much history there yeah true so I guess I have four near to bring an actual thirst thirst. I know thirst for knowledge and then drink it all in because there's a lot of everything here and it's all great great so let's talk about our dream trip to hot. What's brings okay. Yes so personally I'd like more pampering and there's plenty of that to go around here. I want more beer also plenty that who around I would also like to stay one of those decadent vintage looking hotels but we saw it because there was a few of those they've been around for quite a while. The hotel hot springs brings yeah especially that one or the Park Hotel. They just look like they've been there since the AL capone era and maybe he say there. I don't know maybe slept in the same room uh-huh and there's also this beautiful chic btk property which I'm pretty sure it's much newer but just as gorgeous. It's called the waters in and that name is the coolest thing ever just so perfect yeah. That place looks really awesome. That was right downtown on death row. couldn't be more convenient and it has is the most beautiful high end restaurant called the avenue with food like grilled watermelon salad and corn meal. Fried Oysters and mental cheese Chimney Cherry cannot beat that so good so she I think actually wrote a story at one point calling hot springs like the ultimate National Park for foodies because we talk this afternoon. We didn't like you places but it's immediately apparent that like this is definitely a dining destination and after visiting somebody national parks. They definitely stand by that. I think it'd be fun to come here really just like bar hopping restaurant hop around hot springs because there's so many places that we saw or that. I've researched and read about that. I am dying to go to especially the one that I mainly want to go to this place called they. Ohio club and it's the oldest Bar Arkansas with lots of whiskies my music both of which we love yes and I used to have gambling too which is cool not anymore but you know like the backstory naturally to unsurprisingly. I'll capone loved it here like you said the man has good taste..

"History Hot Springs National Park is really a little odd bull of Park. I mean for starters. It's tiny one of the smallest national parks in the country. It's only about fifty five hundred acres yeah so to put that in perspective a little bit by comparison the largest national park in the US wrangle Saint Louis and Alaska is thirteen point two million acres. You can fit a lot of hot springs. They're actually it's primarily an urban park. I mean there's some nature but most of the park is actually situated around the town of Hot Springs Arkansas Right which is a historic mintage like town amidst these rolling Green Mountains in the what she she to mountain range near the ozarks. Yeah it's an old park to even though it wasn't made an official National Park until nineteen twenty one. It was initially protected as hot. It's brings reservation by Congress in April of eighteen thirty two yeah so in other words. This was the first time the US government had ever set set aside land for protection any for him. This is almost a full century before the National Park Service became a thing in a full forty years before yellowstone became America's first national park. It's pretty pretty crazy and amazing stuff yeah the thing that made this place so special to begin with and why they estimated up and worthy of protection is its namesake thermal waters which have longman Armand said to contain medicinal properties and we're revered both by native Americans and apparently also by gangsters and baseball players because sure yeah yeah the hot springs flow off the western side of the hot spring mountain and they're the primary reason the place has been preserved as a national park right. I think when important thing to clear up about hot springs first and foremost is that this isn't the place where you can take a dip in natural hot springs in the woods is actually none of that here whatsoever whoever which might be a bummer to some people. I know like when I was. I thinking I when I was younger. I like thinking of Hot Springs. I would assume that there are these natural springs like in the woods but there's something instead the national park conserves this amazing water for public use and other ways by managing the water flow in pumping it into the town for us in these ornate spas and bath houses and even in drinkable forum and sparkling water and beer people have long been flocking here for those springs and especially those bath houses in fact Hot Springs Arkansas earned the nickname the American spa due to the largest number of thermal treatments and spas along what is now called Bath House road. Yeah love that so this means street forms the heart of the park this bath house row but this lineup of gorgeous designed huge luxury luxury extre- bath houses each one with this gilded age architecture that looks like something off the titanic or something it's incredible and AS Roma Features these beautiful fountains billing with steam that kind of interspersed along the sidewalks like between these buildings. It's really beautiful yeah one point all these buildings were used as actual bath houses and Spas but nowadays oh days only two of them are still used for this purpose as most others have been re purposed into visitors centers museums and a brewery but more on that later. I'm chomping at the bit to talk about that burry. I love it. Yes so cool. Bath House row is actually so cooled that it was actually designated a national historic landmark on its own in nineteen eighty seven yeah. That's the year my birth so I now feel a newfound kinship with bath house row. We're both the same well now now. It's been around long time so that's ridiculous but anyway today the only two bath houses still in use for their original purpose are the buck staff and buildings both of which offer these elaborates boss services and treatments. I'm back in the day. The people soaked here because the thermal waters said to help cure things like rheumatism and since there's been so many health advances in the past century. That's why the bath house culture has taken such a decline yeah kind of kind. Mr I guess but it's really I mean not about Mar.. It's good that health advances happened. Yes what am I saying It's really cool to come here though because it's like kind I know traveling back in time to this like Byron ornate era and you get to luxuriate a little bit in that and the only thing missing really is like champagne champagne while we so wish we could have had that I think like when we took our bath we asked if alcohol is allowed now like notice shame shame right geology but let's talk about the basic water facts. I like the fact that the park contains forty seven natural hot springs pumping out more than a half a million gallons of water per day comes out of the ground at one hundred and forty three degrees Fahrenheit yeah. It's definitely hot aren't that it doesn't nation and much of that water being pumped out. That's much too hot for bathing so thankfully they call it down to a comfortable Jacuzzi Makusi like temperature for use in the bath houses comfortable but even though there was like some hot springs here for centuries. The town wasn't always filled with bass thousand fancy dubs. No no these aren't naturally occurring bath houses for thousands of years indigenous tribes lived in the area and they're the ones who discovered these hot springs and how they could be used and so they started to use the hot thermal waters for their healing properties. They call this place the valley vapors which I love I love that name I think it's so cool and they had these crude hot like structures that they build a long hot springs creek so this is like a far precursor due to these opulent mansion liking buildings. Bath House row for sure. I know some fortunate because you know as the case with too many settlers in developments the native qualify Indians gave up their land to the US government eighteen eighteen and they were basically forced onto nearby reservations. Yeah Arkansas then became an official state. The following year in eighteen nineteen in the areas quickly set aside for production then fast forward a couple more centuries and broaden. I are taking a dip gap in some of the famous and went under water. Yeah the bath was really nice and relaxing. When we win. I mean we did a couple so can had our own little private room so nice. I'm so glad we did. That was really relaxing imperfect. The Bath House also has this huge communal tub which looked beautiful like this ancient reminding of like an ancient gigantic Roman bath or something with these little waterfalls splashing into this gigantic mega tub and these these like Sheikh Lounge chairs all around around it was really lovely but I think we both needed. We just wanted to kind of privacy that we didn't mind me like floating around with a bunch of strangers yeah and we also got to select elect our own bath salts that we wanna use for the soak because we had the private room and as Nice because the water pumps in from jet just imagine when we were here here we took in the same types of old fashioned tubs. Al Capone used to so can yeah and just think to to live in Chicago just like us and visit some of our repeat restaurants like Italian village. He even has his own booth at a time village or at least they pointed out until you so so between our shegog connection the fact act the way essentially took a bath with alcohol and spirit. I mean he was a bone drapes down the street often. We have like a weird connection. Talk upon this really just cemented and I've I've never felt closer to alcohol. Yeah I mean aside from the fact that he's an awful person committed like really horrible and heinous crimes uh-huh I feel like you had Grayson Restaurants National Parks and bathtubs Ya. He really did too bad. He made off life decisions. After this short break. We'll continue talk about hot springs National Park..

Skim Versus Whole Milk: Which Spoils Faster?
"Hey, brainstorm listeners today I wanted to tell you about the new podcast the brink in which hosts aerial Casten and Jonathan Strickland shared the stories of entrepreneurs who took a bold step without really, knowing if solid ground would be on the other side, tune into learn how Walt Disney bet his company and his house on the world's first feature length cartoon, and how a refugee from Vietnam turned a door to door business into a chili sauce empire every week. The brink will bring you new stories of the trials and triumphs of people who didn't let adversity stop their dreams because sometimes things just don't go your way. But what really matters are the choices you make when the odds are against you. You can listen and subscribe to the brink on apple podcasts iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, I'm Lauren Vogel bomb, and we've all had moments of uncertainty, and let's face it paranoia about the state of the food sitting in our refrigerators, you might be able to eyeball some of this suspicious items check for expiration dates on others and with some milk. Maybe you'll probably take a quick with and hope for the best. But if you've ever looked a shelf-life chart to figure out how long your milk might last. You might have noticed that skim milk is said to last a day or two longer than whole milk. But is that really true? And if so why before we really get started. I should state that there is by no means universal agreement on this issue. Some dairy scientists say skim milk lasts longer because certain fat loving microbes can develop as quickly in nonfat milk. Other say that whole milk lasts longer because free fatty acids might actually be natural preservatives. Still others say that maybe there isn't a difference in spoilage at. All it's just that. We noticed flavor changes more in one or the other. There's only been one major controlled study on these spoilage rates of whole and skim milk. And it was somewhat inconclusive skim milk was found to spoil slightly faster. But the researchers weren't exactly sure why bacteria that are psychotropic that is cold resistant are what causes spoilage in the fridge. And in the study, they multiplied at the same rate in both types of milk when the milk spoiled both whole and skim contained similar strains of bacteria. There was a pronounced difference in how whole and skim milk reacted when they were injected with the same spoilage microorganisms, but they affected the milk's taste and smell more than they did the actual spoilage rate whole milk for the record tended to turn sour and skim milk was on the bitter side. So for the purposes of your average milk consumer. There's really no hard and fast rule about which kind will spoil faster if whole. Ilk does last longer than skim the difference is so slight that any given gallon of skim milk could outlast any given gallon of whole milk. The spoilage rate depends on so many variables manufacturer production methods milk formulation plant sanitation storage, temperatures, ph level moisture content just to name a few a small change in just one of them could give any particular container of milk a slightly longer shelf life than another a couple of other factors make things even more ambiguous for one. It's pretty much impossible to pinpoint the exact moment of spoilage, depending on your sense of smell and taste and your tolerance for changes in milk flavor. You might turn up your nose at a gallon of milk that someone else might readily swig, and there's no federal regulation of milk expiration dates in the United States only twenty states, legally standardized, the date that's printed on the bottle, and those standards vary widely one state might mandate a sell by date of a certain number of days after pasteurization, whereas milk jugs in another state would be printed. With a used by date, the upshot don't base your milk purchases on which type might last longer. If you're concerned about shelf life, you'd be better off following a few simple steps to slow down milk spoilage. Whether you're a whole or skimmed drinker, I make sure your refrigerator is the correct temperature. It should be set at forty degrees Fahrenheit. That's four point four degrees celsius store, your milk on an interior shelf instead of on the door, which fluctuates more in temperature and make sure you put your milk back in the fridge as soon as possible after using it leaving it out on the counter for even a few minutes exposes it to light and heat giving 'Bacterial a chance to spring into action. Today's episode was written by Alison Cooper and produced by Tyler clang. Bonus fact for the episode, the origin of milk's, expiration date labels, and of expiration date labels general in the United States rests with a campaign started by Al Capone to learn more about that checkout.
