Ep. 340: MSNBC anchor Katy Tur and ‘The Last Boss of Brighton’ author Douglas Century

December 1, 2022

This week on Unorthodox, we’re lining up outside Santa’s court at the mall.

First we talk with MSNBC anchor Katy Tur about her memoir Rough Draft. She tells us about her experience covering the Trump campaign, her relationship to her Jewish identity, and what it was like growing up with parents who brought new meaning to the phrase “helicopter parent.”

Then, we catch up with writer and Tablet contributor Douglas Century, who joins to talk about his book The Last Boss of Brighton: Boris “Biba” Nayfeld and the Rise of the Russian Mob in America.
