Surviving El Chapo: The Twins Who Brought Down A Drug Lord

Lionsgate Sound, G-Unit, iHeartPodcasts


- Podcast: Non-Fiction

“Surviving El Chapo: The Twins Who Brought Down A Drug Lord” marks the first time that the identical twin brothers who went from dealing $2 billion worth of drugs across the country as North America’s most successful cocaine traffickers, to government informants who brought down the infamous drug lord “El Chapo,” are speaking publicly and telling their story on their own terms. More than a true crime story, the fast-paced, emotional and deeply-reported series develops more as a family drama, with co-hosts Charlie Webster and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson exploring the lives of two people who were born into a family of drug traffickers and groomed from a young age to take over the business. After serving 14 years in prison and living a life of constant danger and uncertainty, the brothers are left questioning whether it was all worth it and whether there will ever be a second chance at life out from under the shadow of their past.
