Legendary Baltimore kingpins Maurice "Peanut" King and Thomas "Joe Dancer" Ricks
01:15:51

Maurice "Peanut" King and Thomas "Joe Dancer" Ricks were two of the biggest kingpins in Baltimore history. Peanut was the strategist and brains of the operation; Joe Dancer was his trusted enforcer. The duo operated a massively successful, illegal, and violent business within Baltimore's storied heroin trade. In 1983 they were both both charged with an 848 - conducting a continual criminal enterprise - also known as the "Kingpin Charge" and reserved only for the most powerful and far-reaching perpetrators. Both men were found guilty by the US District Court of Maryland and sentenced to 30 years in prison. After serving the time they are back in their community trying to ignite change in a city plagued by crime and violence.  They are joined by our friends from The Silverback Chronicles Podcast, Andres "Dre" Severino and Ralph "H" Horton.

The group compares the city's atmosphere between then and now, the ramifications of leading a violent life, and how the ways of supporting their community have changed since they got out.

Alfred "Goat" Brown & Sebastian "Bamm Bamm" Richardson
01:38:34

In the next few episodes I’m bringing you to Shreveport Louisiana. Over the last ten years the folks down there have become my family, the city has become my heart.

Goat and Bamm are two of the most beloved, feared, and respected people in the history of the city. They tell the story of the Bottoms, a once legendary and vibrant neighborhood known for music, wild celebration, and tragic violence. The Bottoms  was ultimately wiped off the face of the earth by the federal government. Goat, Bamm and the rest of the notorious Bottoms Boys gang were sent to decades in prison. Goat did more than 17 years of federal time while Bamm was recently released from the Super Max in Florence, Colorado where he spent over 30 years with prison mates such as El Chapo and Larry Hoover.   

Bamm and Goat are two of the wisest and most evolved people I know. I have endless respect for the code in which they live their lives, and limitless gratitude for their friendship. They both are sacred to me. I hope you learn as much from them as I have.

Thank you. Jon.

Mikhail is my friend on the ground in Moscow. He adds an invaluable perspective about life and his firsthand experience and opinion from on the ground as Russia invades the Ukraine and corrupts the free flow of information to the Russian people. This is the first of an ongoing dialogue to give us a real one's street-level perspective on what’s going on from inside the country. It’s risky to do what he’s doing, so we are protecting his identity. I hope you appreciate his courage as much as I do.
