448 - MICHAEL FRANZESE - How This Mafia Boss Scammed $10 Million A Week From US Government
In a truly jaw dropping, soon-to-be Happy Hour classic, former mob boss and caporegime in the Colombo crime family Michael Franzese lays his soul bare. All the way from Brooklyn, New York, Michael pops by the Happy Hour studio to talk all things mafia. From horses heads left in beds, to ratting out rats, the Prince of The Mafia reveals just how he managed to quit the mob in 1985 and still live to tell the tale.  Very few mobsters successfully manage to leave the mob life behind unscathed but Franzese did, and over the next 90 minutes we’ll get to ask him all the questions you’ve ever wanted to ask a real life mafioso. From literally being name-dropped in arguably the greatest gangster movie of all time ‘Goodfellas’ (Martin Scorsese), to ending up in solitary confinement , Michael has lived through enough to fill 100 lives.  This is one you’re going to want to tell your friends about. So sit back, pour yourself a glass of scotch (or equally cool non-alcoholic beverage if under the age of 18) and enjoy what is destined to be one of Happy Hour’s greatest guest interviews to date.
