About The Sneak

Season 1

The Sneak is a new, serialized true-crime podcast from For The Win and USA TODAY Sports that covers stories in and around the world of sports. The first season is available exclusively on the Wondery Plus platform starting November 13, 2019.

Season 1 recounts the story of Anthony Curcio, a former D-I football player who committed a violent robbery of $400,000 from a Brink's truck and then escaped ... in an inner tube down a river. His crime went viral, was written up in GQ and Esquire, and covered on ABC's 20/20.

There was just one thing: It wasn't the real story. Not even close.

Co-written and produced by Nate Scott (For The Win and USA TODAY Sports), Anthony Pucillo (Game of Thrones, Raising Arizona), and Pat Shannahan (Arizona Republic, The Wall), The Sneak's first season is a look at the stories we tell ourselves about violent crimes. And how, and why, those stories can change.
