Episode Description

Ever wonder what some of the most notorious gangsters were like in real life? Sure, some movies have been made about them, like the classic "Bugsy," but, today's guest, Bill Friedman, debunks these myths. He's spent almost his whole life befriending gangsters - and those who loved and hated them - while researching his new book, 30 Illegal Years to the Strip. Bill became fascinated with gambling from the time he was 7 years old and his parents took him to a casino. It led him to become a casino dealer, shill, casino manager, speaker at Vegas conventions, researcher and author. Find out how he pulled himself back from the brink of becoming a compulsive gambler, and sit back as he takes us on a fascinating journey into the shadowy gambling world.
