In which Vox and Mr. Johnson talk about contacts in Shadowrun. Also, listener questions and a new story!

Show Notes:

Inspirational reading and listening about gangs (thank you to Landsknecht!):
(Word of caution – some of these, particularly Insight Crime, have graphic content):
The Our Thing podcast (http://ourthingpodcast.com/) is a fascinating listen, delving into the practices and histories of actual organized crime. I recommend the Quebec Biker War episodes as an interesting place to start.
Diego Gambetta’s book Codes of the Underworld is on the academic side, but is incredibly revealing regarding motivations and strategies for how criminals undertake strategic decisions and interact with each other.
Insight Crime (http://www.insightcrime.org/) looks at organized crime (and government corruption) in Central and South America. There’s a lot to wade through, but there are some really pertinent articles in there.
