Welcome back to part two of my interview 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.
