EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Carl Russo, author of The Sicilian Mafia: A True Crime Travel Guide, traveled to all the Italian Mafia hotspots in Sicily and took photos of where the godfathers lived, where various Mafia murders took place, and where they buried their victims. 

Carl tells us what he learned about the Mafia while poking around taking photos in Cosa Nostra. We hear about the Sicilian Mafia's infiltration of Italian health care, agriculture, and other basic areas of life, how the Sicilian Mafia has transportation contracts with local Italian government, and most importantly - how he got away with publishing this book without getting whacked. (Hint: try finding a photograph of Carl Russo!)

Chris Brake Show EXCLUSIVE

Carl also tells us an exclusive story about Downtown Palermo that almost didn't turn out so well for our hero, and a blog post he wrote that exposed a Mafia wedding. We also blow the lid off of Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi’s underage sex parties, having models on his cabinet, and too much bunga bunga.
