Director Brendan J Byrne (Elian, 66 Days, One Million American Dreams) joins us for a conversation on the breaking through the noise and perceptions that have clouded the Bulger family legacy and how even the story about the most notorious Bulger, James “Whitey” Bulger is not what you may think it is.

In one of the most egregious law enforcement scandals of the last century, the U.S. Government helped to cultivate and empower one of the most notorious murderers of our time. A man who was simultaneously hailed as both a savior and a devil, a protector and an oppressor, James “Whitey” Bulger’s story is complex and almost unbelievable. How did just another poor South Boston hoodlum rise to be the King of the Irish Mob, and reign without punishment for 20 years as the bodies piled up around him? How did he manipulate and stay one step ahead of law enforcement even after becoming a fugitive on the FBI’s most-wanted list, second only to Osama Bin Laden? Whitey Bulger wasn’t your average gangster, but his genius was facilitated by equally criminal men at every level of law enforcement. With their help, Whitey rose to power using violence, money, intelligence, and charisma. Whether it was karma, poetic justice, or a government setup, Whitey met his end violently and in a manner reminiscent of the countless murders he so easily committed.

What A Creep: Whitey Bulger Season 8, Episode 7 In his 89 years of life, James “Whitey” Bulger mostly did whatever the hell he pleased—and usually got away with it. The notorious Boston gangster held his hometown in his clutches as the leader of the Winter Hill Gang. He was involved with everything from racketeering, extortion, murder, narcotics, and money laundering. He was eventually charged with the murder of 19 people (that we even know about) after being on the lamb for 16 years. His story was told (not very well) in the Johnny Depp movie Black Mass (the book is much better!) The character of “Costello” in The Departed (played by Jack Nicholson) was inspired by the story of Whitey Bulger. (Spoiler alert) He wound up killed by a younger version of himself on his first day at a prison in West Virginia. His whole life he railed against rats and snitches—but it turns out he was one of the biggest FBI informants in the 70s & 80s which shielded him from the law. His legacy of mayhem and murder continues in the culture of Boston and the number of supposed “good guys” who were complicit in his crimes will blow your mind.   Trigger Warnings: Murder, violence, sexual assault, and Margo’s frequent attempts at a Boston accent.

On this episode of the Sofa King Podcast, we do some mobster-style true crime and talk about the kingpin of Boston, Whitey Bulger. In the 1970s and 80s, Bulger ran the Winter Hill Gang and was the head of the Irish Mob in the Boston area. This was a title he earned through several wars with the Irish, a deal with the Italians, and a whole lotta bodies. His story was so wild that Martin Scorsese based Jack Nicholson’s character from The Departed on him. Johnny Depp also played him in Black Mass. Whitey was part of MKUltra, supported the Irish Republican Army, and turned his job as an FBI informant on its ear, corrupting the local feds. He managed to escape capture by globe-trotting with his girlfriend for 16 years. Born to two immigrants from Canada, James “Whitey” Bulger was a typical Southie kid from Boston. His father was a longshoreman who lost his arm in an accident and could no longer work. While Whitey’s siblings all did well in school and walked the straight and narrow, he turned to the streets. He was in a gang called the Shamrocks by the age of 14, and in his time with them he was arrested for assault, forgery and armed robbery. Once out of jail, he spent some time in the military but spent as much time in the brig as he did serving his country. At 26 years old, he got arrested for armed robbery while jacking a truck. In prison, he volunteered for the MKUltra project once he found out he’d get paid to take drugs. It didn’t go so well as the LSD took its toll, but eventually he got out. Once free, he found himself in the middle of a war between Irish gangs. He killed the wrong guy, like you do, and escalated things until the Italian mob got involved and settled a peace. This was the birth of the Winter Hill Gang. From there, he raised in the ranks. He did it all. Extortion, theft, armed robbery, murder, anything you can think of that a mafia does, you can bet Whitey did it. Some say his mob was even responsible for the Gardner Museum Heist. Eventually, he became an FBI informant, though he prided himself on serving them weak information in return for favors. In time, he had his two FBI handlers accepting bribes and giving him tips and covering from every crime he committed. In fact, when the entire leadership of the Winter Hill Gang was arrested, Whitey was spared by the FBI and took control of the gang. He ran Boston with a strange code that he had, and he was racist, using terrorist tactics to try and stop desegregation of schools in the 1960s. Eventually, the DEA and local police figured out that the FBI was covering for him, so they build their own case. Whitey’s FBI guys tipped him off, however, and he went on the run for a whopping 16 years. At one point, he even beat Osama Bin Laden on the top 10 most wanted list. So, how did his girlfriend’s boob job help get them caught? Where were they living? How many murders did he get sentenced for? What brutal end did he face at the hands of other mobsters while an old man in jail? How did his own plans to die on the lamb lead to an abandoned mine shaft in Arizona? Listen, laugh, learn.     Visit Our Sources: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitey_Bulger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9j5I6h8Q-0 https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/30/obituaries/whitey-bulger-dead.html https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/interactive/us/bulger-timeline.html https://themobmuseum.org/notable_names/whitey-bulger/ https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/31/us/james-whitey-bulger/index.html https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/whitey-bulger-juror-regrets-conviction-after-receiving-dozens-letters-crime-n1137871

Based on exclusive, fresh reporting, HUNTING WHITEY is the thrilling, definitive inside story of the pursuit, capture, and killing of legendary South Boston mob boss, James “Whitey” Bulger, detailing as never before his years on the run, how he evaded arrest, and his brutal murder in prison. Sherman and Wedge draw on exclusive interviews and exhaustive investigative reportage to tell the complete story of Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious crime bosses in American history and a longtime FBI informant. The leader of Boston’s Winter Hill Gang and #1 on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, Bulger was indicted for nineteen counts of murder, racketeering, narcotics distribution, and extortion. But it was his sixteen-year flight from justice on the eve of his arrest that made him a legend and exposed deep corruption within the FBI. Interweaving the perspectives of Bulger, his family and cohorts, and law enforcement—including former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, HUNTING WHITEY explains how this dangerous criminal evaded capture for nearly two decades and shines a spotlight on the dedicated detectives, federal agents, and prosecutors involved in bringing him to justice. It is also a fascinating, detailed portrait of both Bulger’s trial and his time in prison—including shocking new details about his 2018 death at Hazelton Prison less than twenty-four hours after his arrival. Unlike other books chronicling Bulger’s life and crimes, HUNTING WHITEY offers unprecedented access to inside sources in this case and chronicles the story of his life on the run, his capture, and his eventual murder. This is the definitive book on Whitey Bulger. Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge are one of the premier non-fiction writing teams telling stories out of Boston. Together, they co-wrote the definitive story of the Boston Marathon bombings in Boston Strong: A City’s Triumph Over Tragedy, which was adapted for the Mark Wahlberg film Patriots Day. They also wrote Ice Bucket Challenge: Pete Frates and the Fight against ALS, which is in development as a Netflix feature film, and the New York Times bestselling 12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady’s Fight for Redemption.

This is episode 283 of Teaching Learning Leading K12. ( She had just presented at a state principal's conference.) Best selling author, Emmy-nominated investigative reporter and award-winning journalist Michele McPhee has spent two decades covering terrorism, murder, mobsters, and corruption for television, newspapers and radio.

She was also on the ground at the scene of two terror attacks on American soil. McPhee was among the first reporters at Ground Zero when two human-filled bombs hurtled into the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001. She was also a witness to the carnage unleashed by two homegrown terrorists who detonated two pressure cooker bombs secreted in backpacks placed in the crowd along the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 and is currently at work on a book about the FBI’s involvement with accused bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev. McPhee is the author of five true crime books, including A Mob Story the book notorious Boston mobster Whitey Bulger had on his bookshelf at his Santa Monica hideout. McPhee was the Boston producer for ABC News working in the Brian Ross Investigative Unit and has broken multiple national stories regarding New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez and his murderous past. She was the first reporter in the country to obtain a picture of accused bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s anti-American missive scribbled on the side of a Watertown boat where he hid for hours during a massive police manhunt. She also traveled to Montreal to interview, with Brian Ross, the world’s most sophisticated counterfeiter of US $20 bills and covered the trial of Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger. McPhee was the Police Bureau Chief for the New York Daily News for nearly a decade and has covered high-profile crime cases nationally and internationally, including the death of Princess Diana. She has been a commentator on breaking news for national programs on ABC World News, CNN; MSNBC; and the Fox News Network.

"He was set-up to be murdered," declares former gangster Larry Lawton, who spent 11 years in some of the toughest federal prisons in the United States.The attackers who killed Bulger, 89, at a high-security federal prison in West Virginia tried to cut out his tongue, "All Rise" reveals — as startling new details about the legendary mafia boss' final moments come to light. Bulger was beaten beyond recognition in the fatal attack. In the world of organized crime, cutting out the tongue is a popular punishment for people who snitch or cooperate with law enforcement officials.The mobster — who ruled Boston's criminal underground for more than 20 years and stayed on the run for another 16 before his capture — died a day after he was transferred there from another facility."(It was) total negligence ... they (the prison system) sentenced him to death," declares Larry Lawton, who spent 11 years in some of the toughest federal prisons in the United States.Plus: Is it possible Megyn Kelly was set up after network brass realized she was never a fit for NBC?"All Rise" explores that question and more amid a tumultuous legal battle that began when she defended blackface Halloween costumes, causing massive backlash that led her to apologize. Now she is demanding big bucks to leave the network."It all comes down to who will blink first … and in light of the ugly information ... my bet is NBC will blink," attorney Richard Roth tells host Dylan Howard.Guests:Larry Lawton, author of “Gangster Redemption”Richard Roth, attorney

On this week’s Past Present podcast, Nicole Hemmer, Natalia Mehlman Petrzela, and Neil Young discuss Pope Francis’ visit to the US, the “quit lit” phenomenon, and Donald Trump. Here are some links and references mentioned during this week’s show: The papal visit of Pope Francis marks the tenth time a pope has come to the United States. In his new book, We Gather Together, Neil writes about how Pope John Paul II’s papal visits in the 1980s strengthened the American pro-life movement and deepened evangelical-Catholic relations. The rise of “quit lit” from professors announcing their departure from academia in written form found its most recent example in an essay for the website Vox. But the fantasy of quitting one’s job has been a frequent theme in American pop culture, from Johnny Paycheck’s country hit, “Take This Job and Shove It,” to the twentieth-century novels Babbitt and Revolutionary Road. Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to intrigue and puzzle political commentators. Historians have looked for historical precedents for Trump, but it may be that Trump, particularly in terms of his views on immigration and his outrageous comments about Mexicans, is best understood in the historical currents of American populism and nativism. Niki has written frequently on the Trump phenomenon in her column for U.S. News.In our regular closing feature, What’s Making History: Natalia discussed the recent finding that more people in 2015 have died from “selfie-related deaths” than from shark attacks. Such news reminded Natalia of Christopher Lasch’s critique of American society in his 1979 classic, The Culture of Narcissism.Neil recommended Johnny Depp’s new movie, Black Mass, which depicts the career of James “Whitey” Bulger, the mafia kingpin and FBI informant who terrorized South Boston in the 1970s and early 1980s. ·Niki spoke about Erik Kirschbaum’s recent editorial, “Whatever Happened to German America?” Niki, our resident German American, waxed nostalgic about her love for kuchen, springerle, and the Schnitzelbank drinking song. While understanding the history of discrimination against German Americans, which David Kennedy outlined in his book Over Here, Niki suggested there are much stronger historical reasons why we won’t see an organized drive to reclaim German-American identity any time soon.

In this exclusive SoundWorks Collection sound profile Jon Burlingame talks with Composer Tom Holkenborg (Junkie XL) about his work on the film Black Mass. Three-time Oscar nominee Johnny Depp (“Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” “Finding Neverland,” the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films) stars as notorious mobster James “Whitey” Bulger in the drama “Black Mass,” directed by Scott Cooper (“Crazy Heart”). The film also stars Joel Edgerton (“The Great Gatsby,” “Zero Dark Thirty”) as FBI Agent John Connolly; Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Imitation Game”) as Whitey’s brother, powerful State Senator Billy Bulger; Rory Cochrane (“Argo”) as Steve Flemmi, Whitey’s closest partner in crime; Jesse Plemons (TV’s “Fargo”) as Whitey’s main henchman, Kevin Weeks; and Kevin Bacon (“Crazy, Stupid, Love.” TV’s “The Following”) as FBI Special Agent in Charge Charles McGuire. In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster Jimmy Bulger (Depp) to collaborate with the FBI in order to eliminate their common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement while consolidating his power and becoming one of the most ruthless and dangerous gangsters in Boston history.
