Arts-Culture #39 (Sun Mar 24, 2013) Author Jerry Langton: The Notorious Bacon Brothers-inside gang warfare on Vancouver streets
Today on our arts segment, I speak to Canadian non-fiction author Jerry Langton.  His new book is just out, and once again, he takes certain risks to get into the crime scene in one of Canada's major cities.  This time around its a look at the gangs and drug wars in the port city of Vancouver.

With some background on the development of gangs and criminal activity going back over one hundred years, Jerry Langton then begins to focus on a new type of criminal and gang operation. Unlike the generally held theory and situation, the Bacon brothers came not from an underprivileged background and a hard life, on the wrong side of the tracks, but rather from the right side of the track and a life of relative ease.

The book makes for some interesting reading, and I hope you enjoy our conversation. I also have a coy to give away. Listen to the interview for the details, and I do also like to get your comments.
