Retired D.E.A. Agents Javier Pena and Steve Murphy are our guests. Javier and Steve are the DEA Agents whose work in Columbia inspired the hit tv show “Narcos” on Netflix. They both talk about their careers as cops in small towns before joining the DEA. Steve and Javier talk about the many years they spent taking down Pablo Escobar, who at that time was the world’s most powerful narco-terrorist. They shed unique insight about the real dangers, difficulties and heroes that ended Pablo's reign of terror. They also talk about their new book and other projects.
