So the name Randy Jurgensen doesn’t sound familiar to you? Well, believe it or not you know him. The retired NYPD Detective 1st Grade and film icon has acted in and produced dozens of films, and has worked on some of New York City’s most famous cases. His book, Circle of Six, is his real-life tale of going against the system and practically the entire department in order to bring to justice the murderer of a fellow brother-in-blue, in what turned out to be one of the city’s most notorious cases. This April marks the 40th anniversary of the killing of Officer Phil Cardillo at Mosque #7 in Harlem, and the case that forever changed the seasoned detective, and the entire New York City Police Department. In part one of this PODWITS EXCLUSIVE, Randy sits down with Dion and talks about his very colorful career as a homicide detective, and his unlikely segue into the cinema.

Please check out the sneak preview to this interview, Randy’s own preface, that adds to this conversation a context, at the end of last week’s podcast, found here. Also, check out Part 2 of this exclusive, found here.
