The late Henry Hill was a wiseguy, a member of New York’s Lucchese crime family for 25 years, until he turned state’s evidence and went into hiding. He became a celebrity mobster after Martin Scorsese’s film Goodfellas came out in 1990, starring Ray Liotta as Henry Hill. Author Daniel Simone, who co-wrote a book with Hill, joins George Knapp in the first half to discuss numerous insider stories, including his personal interactions with Hill. In the latter half, investigative journalist Nafeez Ahmed addresses how the US Dept. of Defense wants contractors to mine people’s social media posts to develop new ways for the government to infer what they’re thinking and feeling and to predict what they’ll do next.
