True Crime author Peter Moskos on The Leonard Lopate Show

Be sure to check out the interview below with Cop in the Hood author Peter Moskos on my favorite radio program The Leonard Lopate Show.

According to his website, Cop in the Hood:

is an explosive insider’s story of what it is really like to be a police officer on the front lines of the war on drugs. Harvard-trained sociologist Peter Moskos became a cop in Baltimore’s roughest neighborhood —the Eastern District, also the location for the critically acclaimed HBO drama The Wire. He provides an unforgettable window into this world that outsiders never see. Those who read it will never view the badge the same way.
