GKO returns with a bang as best-selling author Rich Cohen joins us online to talk about his new book: “The Last Pirate of New York: A Ghost Ship of a Killer and the Birth of a Gangster Nation” plus so much more!
We learn about Rich’s father Herb Cohen who was known as the “World’s Greatest Negotiator” as he negotiated with the Soviet Union and who Donald Trump wrote a blurb for his book causing the elder Cohen to say that if Trump won the presidency, he would get the ambassadorship to Barbados. Hasn’t worked out that way so far.
The guys talk about Rich’s relationships with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, the Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson, Harry Caray, Irv Kupcinet, Mark Bazer, Billy Williams, why George Halas helped the Green Bat Packers, the Sopranos, the Godfather, organized crime, the JFK assassination, and the mob’s ties to presidents like James Buchanan, FDR, Harry Truman and Kennedy, Rich salves Glenn’s wounded emotions from the collapse of the Tampa Bay Lightning, compares and contrasts that with their shared love of the Chicago Cubs and his commitment to writing the history of Camp Menominee, already titled, “Hats Off to Thee”.
