Welcome to Crimetown, a new series from Gimlet Media and the creators of HBO's The Jinx. Every season, we'll investigate the culture of crime in a different American city. First up: Providence, Rhode Island, where organized crime and corruption infected every aspect of public life. This is a story of alliances and betrayals, of heists and stings, of crooked cops and honest mobsters—a story where it's hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Hosted by Marc Smerling and Zac Stuart-Pontier.
Crimetown is working on Season 2, and we will have news on that soon. In the meantime, we wanted to introduce you to a new series from Gimlet Media called Mogul, a show we think Crimetown listeners will love. It tells the story of hip-hop through the life of one man: Chris Lighty. So we’re playing Episode 3 of Mogul, a story with some elements of crime in it, followed by a conversation with Mogul’s host, Reggie Ossé.
