Drugs, Bloody Violence and Entertainment

Hosted by

After a shootout that killed five bodyguards, billionaire drug kingpin Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán is back in the same Mexican prison he tunneled out of last year. He's thought responsible for killing thousands of people, including local officials, contributing to the corruption that's made parts of Mexico almost ungovernable.  The myth of his invulnerability is part of Mexico's "narco-culture"-- songs, TV series and movies that make profitable fiction out of gruesome reality. But the focus on his personal drama — including his interview with Sean Penn — is to miss the real story of what it means to be "the world's most powerful drug lord."
