Deep Cover: The Real Donnie Brasco wraps season one with stories about dealing with Hollywood.
The season finale of Deep Cover: The Real Donnie Brasco became available last week, and everything really came full circle. Leo and Joe reminisced about when Donnie Brasco went to Hollywood. From the inception of his book to being recognized in the old neighborhood while on a location scout, there are quite a few stories that'll have your wheels turning. Joe also settled a very important question for Leo, "Who is worse Hollywood-types or wise-guys?" The answer might surprise you, well, giving what you might know about Hollywood maybe it won't.
While Donnie Brasco's story may be over, Joe Pistone's is not. Get a sneak peek of season two at the end of the finale. We heard about his time with the mob, next we hear about more of his undercover work not just here in America but overseas.
The Big Swing with Strip and Coop
It was a jam-packed episode of The Big Swing this week that gave us everything from NFL takes, favorite moments from the show, and even a new segment from Ross Stripling. We got a very opinionated Cooper Surles with his take on week one of the NFL season. He makes his way-too-early Super Bowl prediction, expresses his continued frustration with his favorite football team the Dallas Cowboys, and makes a jaw-dropping statement about the greatest quarterback of all-time -- Tom Brady.
Take Text from Ross, a new segment for The Big Swing, let's us feel like a little part of him his still with us while he's trying to push into the playoffs with his new team. This week's take text has to do with Lebron James and Kawhi Leonard. Considering what we know about the NBA playoffs, that take didn't age well. But, you're still going to want to hear Coop's breakdown and rebuttal to this week's Take Text from Ross. Catch up on everything Big Swing podcast anywhere you listen to podcasts.
