A McMafia Review, An EPIC Rant & "I'll be Gone in the Dark"

No more messing around! CWO has made it to the Elite Eight in Discoverpods' Podcast Madness. With the help of awesome listeners like YOU, we can beat that little-known podcast S-town and advance to the Final Four. Vote at discoverpods.com! LET'S SHOCK THE WORLD!

Meantime...back in our podcast...the panel talks about updates from "The Pope's Long Con" and "Mommy Dead & Dearest." We listen to a profanity-laden rant from "Crime in Sports" about self-important podcasters. And we talk about the gripping new book, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, published posthumously by Michelle McNamara.

Our main event: "McMafia," the new organized crime series from BBC and AMC. This good-guy-dragged-in-bad-deeds tale is expensive and extravagant, but will audiences like its high-finance meets underworld story?
