Jim and Eric discuss the legacy of larger-than-life former Congressman Jim Traficant, from playing quarterback at Pitt to dealing with the mob in Youngstown, to being sent to prison on corruption charges, Jim Traficant was one of the most colorful characters in American politics. Jim and Eric also discuss Jimmy performing stand-up at mob-run Youngstown comedy clubs in the 1980s when Traficant was the Mahoning County Sheriff, and so much more!

Directed by Youngstown Native, Eric Murphy is premiering at the The Parkway Theater in McKee's Rocks, PA. Opens Friday October 21st One Week Only Before Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders, Congressman Jim Traficant was the original bombastic populist, but with "son-of-a-truck driver" street cred. As a mob-busting sheriff in Youngstown, Ohio, his refusal to evict steelworkers from their homes made him a folk hero. He demolished organized crime, defended himself against the Justice Department in a RICO case and even vanquished President Clinton. The meteoric rise, Shakespearean collapse, and tragic death of Jim Traficant is detailed in the new feature documentary, TRAFICANT: The Congressman of Crimetown. 10/21 - 7:00pm & 9:00pm 10/22 - 7:00pm Q & A Skype session with Director Eric Murphy 10/24 - 7:30pm 10/25 - 7:00pm 10/26 - 7:00pm 10/27 - 7:00pm “Traficant was larger-than-life -- with equal parts Congressional jester and working-class hero,” says filmmaker Murphy. “Now, with the insane presidential election, Traficant feels more relevant than ever.” Tickets $7 Check out links below to listen regularly. • Listen on iTunes • Listen on Stitcher Radio • Listen on SoundCloud • Listen at Art19 • Listen on the Jim Krenn website TWITTER FOLLOWS: @JimKrenn, @TalentNetworkTV, @PGHPodcast, @PrimeCoreGroup, @DelaniesCoffee @AMPDgroup @Traficant_Movie CONTACT THE PODCAST: http://talent network, inc.
