For some dark reason we seem to be drawn to the mob. It's been romanticized in novels and movies. Some mobsters were even national folk heroes back in the day. Why? Is it their Robin Hood traits? Or are we all just a little bit mobster deep down inside? Phil and Campbell Valentine explore the origins of the mafia and how it spread to America. They also talk about Phil's brushes with the mob and how influential the mafia is today.
