Pablo Escobar

Paul Revere and the Ride, Henry Ford and the assembly line, Lee Harvey Oswald and JFK, Monica Lewinsky and cigars…. All famous names in history and the automatic associations we have with them when we bring up their name in thought or conversation.  Now the subject or today’s show, Pablo Escobar, whoop, yep, there it is – cocaine, is definitely another one of those names.  Pablo came from nothing in the streets of Medellin, to become the head of one of the largest drug cartels in the world.  In his prime, he was in the top 10 list of Forbes most wealthy people in the world and responsible for about 80% of the cocaine in the United States.  But as most would suspect, things did not end well.  But was all the violence around the cartel at the hands of Pablo?  Was he the one ordering the murders of cops and competition, or was this a plan by his employees?  How much money can a rat eat in one year?  We’ll dive into this and much more in the Pablo Escobar episode of AHC Podcast.
