The World of Five-Star tells the story of how Howard Garfinkel helped shape the game of basketball as we know it today through his crowning achievement: Five-Star Basketball Camp. Host Tate Frazier spent the past year uncovering what he would consider “the best basketball story never told” about a chain-smoker from Manhattan, who built a camp that completely changed the recruiting business forever. In this episode, we’ll explore the motivation behind the man they call “Garf” and detail his unusual journey to becoming a basketball guru. With the help of Five-Star legends like George Raveling, Larry Brown, Rick Pitino, Bobby Cremins, Tom Konchalski, and never-before-heard conversations with Garfinkel himself, we’ll hear how the foundation of Garf’s iconic camp was built. Welcome to The World of Five-Star!

The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
