In the first of three episodes, Aaron and I invite retired F.B.I. Agent Bill Ouseley to discuss the connection between the Chicago Outfit and the Kansas City crime family. We will discuss the early days of Nick Civella’s criminal career and how his trouble with the Kansas City La Cosa Nostra forced him to flee to Chicago on two separate occasions. The second time Nick returns from Chicago, Kansas City mobsters ambush him and a Civella associate is killed. Another Civella associate, Joseph “Buggy” Anch, was killed a few days before this attempt. He returns to Chicago. I studied Bill Ouseley’s books, Mobsters In Our Midst and Open City to prepare for this show.

Joe was my great uncle , mom’s uncle. I’ve hear a lot about all this over the years. Met Nick many times. Good guy
Thanks for your comment. I am putting togetya podcast show on the effect on relatives of mob guys. Mainly children and grandchildren. Would you have anybody who might let me record a short piece with their memory of Nick Civella?
