Up Against the Mob: The Cooperator

Chicano Squad - A podcast by Vox Media Podcast Network

Up Against the Mob is CAFE’s six-episode series, hosted by former prosecutor Elie Honig, that lifts the veil on the world of the mafia and law enforcement’s efforts to bring mobsters to justice.  Episode 1 tells the story of Michael Visconti. Once a rising star in the Genovese crime family, Visconti decided to leave the mafia and become a cooperating government witness. Visconti opens up to Elie Honig about his life and rise in the mob — how he first got mixed up with the mafia, the violent crimes he committed, and his decision to flip against his mob “family.”   Up Against the Mob is produced by CAFE Studios and the Vox Media Podcast Network.
