Today we're diving into the history of the Kansas City Mafia with mafia expert and former KCMO detective, Gary Jenkins. In this, the first of two parts, Gary takes us from Ellis Island immigration through World War 2, discussing Prohibition, the Pendergast Machine, carpet joints, narcotics, gambling, and the mafia connection to politicians and other corruption. We also talk about the Kansas City mafia as portrayed on screen.
