Inside the Life is a new podcast produced by The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement. It is hosted by two former elite undercover agents, Giovanni Rocco and Dutch McAlpin. Their stories of infiltrating everything from the American Mob and outlaw motorcycle gangs to the cartels will leave you stunned. This podcast will give listeners a one-of-a-kind look into the inner world of organized crime, featuring guests who have lived on both sides of the law, risked it all and emerged to tell the tale. 


Giovanni Rocco

Elite deep cover agent Giovanni Rocco was responsible for taking down the American Mob organization now recognized as “The Real Sopranos.” During his decades-long career as an undercover for the federal government, he successfully infiltrated outlaw motorcycle gangs, domestic and international terror organizations and the Mafia. His role in Operation Charlie Horse brought down several high-ranking members and associates of the New Jersey DeCavalcante crime family, which ultimately led to early retirement and the relocation of his family. Drawing from his service in law enforcement in various positions, Giovanni now shares his expertise with law enforcement, military and intelligence units worldwide. 

Dutch McAlpin

Often working in extremely dangerous, life-threatening scenarios, Dutch McAlpin left his more than 20-year career in law enforcement with an endless number of stories. Working his way from a beat cop in the Midwest to an undercover task force agent for numerous federal agencies, Dutch infiltrated outlaw motorcycle gangs, domestic terrorist organizations, weapons trafficking networks, Latin American cartels, international human trafficking rings and even the Mafia, sometimes operating with three different undercover identities at the same time. Dutch’s harrowing accounts give us a glimpse into the top clearance, confidential world of undercover work. 


The Mob Museum is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to advance the public understanding of organized crime’s history and impact on American society.    

Located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, The Museum is an immersive experience exploring the ongoing power struggle between organized crime and law enforcement from the Mob’s origination to today. Through vivid storytelling, guests are presented with the facts, the fiction and the gray area in between — showcasing the events and characters that played an integral (and infamous) role in U.S. history.

Taking its cues from the Entertainment Capital of the World, The Mob Museum seamlessly melds intrigue with explanation through four expertly-curated floors of interactive exhibits, multimedia displays, engaging artifacts and pop culture lore.    

One of the Museum’s most prized artifacts is its home, an immaculately restored former U.S. Post Office and Courthouse. The revered 1930s neoclassical building housed many compelling moments in its lifetime, including one of the Kefauver hearings.    

The Museum opened on February 14, 2012, continuing the building’s cultural significance and playing a vital role in downtown Las Vegas’ revival. Deeply embedded in Las Vegas, The Mob Museum is committed to supporting the community through education and senior outreach programs, field trips and a robust events calendar offering opportunities for both education and entertainment.   

The Museum was awarded national accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) on March 1, 2017. This distinction means the Museum meets National Standards and Best Practices for U.S. museums and is a two-time winner of the Mayor’s Urban Design Award for Historic Preservation and Adaptive Reuse.   

The Mob Museum has accumulated numerous accolades, including being named one of TripAdvisor’s “Top 25 U.S. Museums;” one of Las Vegas Weekly’s “Twenty Greatest Attractions in Las Vegas History” and “Best Museum” by its 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards; one of National Geographic’s “Top 10 Things to Do in Las Vegas;” USA Today’s “Top Five Best History Museums in the United States” in 2021 and one of its “12 Can’t Miss U.S. Museum Exhibits;” named “A Must for Travelers” by The New York Times and one of “20 Places Every American Should See” by FOX News.
