Today I’m very excited to bring you episode one of two with “The” Narcos who helped bring down Pablo Escobar! Retired D.E.A. Agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña.
Javier Peña and Steve Murphy are former DEA agents best known for bringing down Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar in the '90s, as dramatized in the first two seasons of the Netflix series Narcos and chronicled in their book Manhunters: How We Took Down Pablo Escobar.
In today’s episode, we discuss:
· Pablo’s Hippos.
· Steve and Javier’s beginnings in law enforcement and their path to becoming D.E.A. Agents.
· How someone should prepare themselves to become a D.E.A. Agent.
· How both of their careers changed after bringing down one of the biggest cocaine dealers in history.
· What their role was in the Netflix series “Narcos” and how it has changed their lives.
· Their book Manhunters: How We Took Down Pablo Escobar.
