“I amuse you? I make you laugh?” Bowery Boys on GoodFellas Minute

If you’re a fan of classic movies, you should definitely check out the strange but marvelous podcast GoodFellas Minute, which specializes in analyzing the classic 1990 Martin Scorsese movie starring Robert De Niro, Joe Pesce, Lorraine Bracco and Ray Liotta.

As the title suggests, each episode of the podcast — featuring Ron Richards, Josh Flanagan, and Conor Kilpatrick — inspects one minute of the movie, drilling down into both the real events depicted in the film and some trivia about the actors and the production. It’s about so much more than GoodFellas; it’s about New York City history, Italian-American culture, mob stories and film nostalgia in general.

And for this week of shows — Episode 91 through 95 — I’m a guest-star on the program!  In specific, we all talk about the 1978 Lufthansa heist, Debi Mazar, and pink Cadillacs.

ALSO — You get to hear about my strange connection to John Gotti.

You can listen to the show directly at their website or you can download it from iTunes. Thanks to Ron, Josh and Conor for having me on the show!
