At the height of Prohibition, Al Capone made a killing selling illegal alcohol and by making a spectacle of the gangster lifestyle. But with the booze running free and the money pouring in, his wasn't the only gang trying to get a piece of the pie. And Capone was never the sharing type.

15: Bonus 04 - Rats
One of the unwritten rules of the Mafia was Omerta, the code of silence. No one was allowed to talk about the existence of the Mafia, reveal how it worked or who the main players were. The Mafia demanded loyalty from its members to the very end. But when the law enforcement started to use modern surveillance techniques and tools to incriminate mobsters, those willing to cooperate with authorities began to grow longer and longer. It turned out mobsters do talk about the Mafia and about others to save their own skin, even bosses.

14: Bonus 03: The Establishment
There is a long list of people and organizations who were in one way or another in the Mafia’s pockets. In this bonus episode, we’ll look at the connection between the Mafia and the American establishment. From politicians, law enforcement, the CIA and the unions the mob collaborated with the state and officials on many occasions. And being the Mafia, they always expected something in return.
