Listen to the first episode of our new Hoffa series

Hi Listener,

This week, we released episode 1 of our new Hoffa series. To understand his life and death, we travel back to his humble beginnings, where a tyrannical foreman at Kroger sets a young Hoffa in motion. From there, an early meeting with some notorious Detroit mobsters redirects Hoffa’s path.

Episode 1 of Shattered: Hoffa is available now wherever you listen to podcasts.

In this week’s bonus episode, we talk with Hoffa expert Scott Burnstein about the new Martin Scorsese film, The Irishman, which features Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa. And then host Steve Garagiola talks to us producers about what it’s been like to try podcasting for the first time.
