In this week's episode, host Craig Lyndall talks with Scene writer Doug Brown, who penned a fabulous feature story about how authorities orchestrated the biggest heroin bust in Northeast Ohio history, resulting in 92 people facing indictments.

The tale's got everything out of a season of The Wire — a Mexican pipeline, a fake documentary film crew, wiretaps, brazen Cleveland kingpins flaunting their cash in music videos, and an undercover cop moving up in the distribution game.

Do give it a read and listen below.
