Introducing... Crooked City: Youngstown, OH

Crooked City: Dixon, IL

06-07-2022 • 2 mins

From Marc Smerling, the creator of Crimetown and The Jinx, welcome to CROOKED CITY.  The Saturday Evening Post dubbed Youngstown, Ohio “Crimetown U.S.A.” It was a mob town. Illegal gambling was so lucrative that a mob war raged for decades, and bodies piled  up. Then, Jim Traficant ran for sheriff, riding into office as the city’s steel industry fell on hard times. Traficant battles the local newspaper, then the FBI, the IRS and finally his own demons as an eight-term, twice-indicted congressman. Subscribe now to unlock all shows on The Binge - All Episodes. All at Once... and you’ll be the first to access Crooked City: Youngstown, OH as soon as it drops on July 25th. A truth.media & Sony Music Entertainment production.
