Mexican Drug Lord, Legacies of Harold Ramis & Bill Thomas

Hosted by

Today on Press Play, we look at the capture of one of Mexico’s most wanted fugitives and his impact on the global drug trade. We also look back on the life and career of Harold Ramis, the man behind some of Hollywood’s most iconic comedies of the 70s, 80s and 90s. We also discuss another passing - that of Bill Thomas, former editor of the L.A. Times. And we meet an 85 year old man who’s documenting the history of mankind on slabs of stone in the middle of the desert.

Mexico has captured its most wanted man, drug kingpin Guzman, President Enrique Pena Nieto said via Twitter on Saturday, in a major victory in a long, grisly fight against drug gangs. Guzman, known as "El Chapo" (Shorty) in Spanish, runs Mexico's infamous Sinaloa Cartel and over the past decade emerged as one of the world's most powerful organized crime bosses. REUTERS/Henry Romero
