tampa's underworld

The SoFlo Weird Team hit the streets of Tampa to explore it's sordid past.  Historic Ybor City was once a hotbed for criminal activity during prohibition, only second to New York City.  From bolita and bootlegging to a turf war that led to the Era of Blood, we sought to get the real scoop on the seedier side of Tampa’s history with mob expert, author and historian, Scott Deitche.  Then, we take a look at the women who had an active role in Tampa’s old bolita lotteries in Tales From The Vice Squad.
