You learn about the Mafia in movies, and some history books... and if you're like me- it never feels real.
That is, until you're offered an interview with one of the biggest bosses of the organized crime.
Salvatore Gravano, AKA Sammy the Bull, now lives a life outside of prison, recording podcasts and making short films about his former mobster life. He's not shying away from it, even though he says it hurts to remember certain murders, as they live very clearly in his brain.
We talked about what it's like to wake up as himself every day, and if he wishes he had a different life. Would a dyslexia diagnosis have changed history forever?!
His short films are out now [the trailer is below], so he also talks about filming everything within his home, with a small crew, and having to redo some things because they weren't up to par.
This may be one of the top 3 most fascinating, albeit short, conversations I've ever had... with a man who says he was a different kind of gangster- one with a heart.
