Top 5 parts from Real Narcos: Pablo Escobar


This week we have dived a little bit into the true crime genre. Obviously there are few places to start other than infamous Narcoterrorist Pablo Escobar, the King of cocaine and probably the most infamous drug lord of all time!

We started listening to the Real Narcos series from Noisier, the narrator having one of the most relaxing and soothing voices that juxtapose the violence and murder that he describes. This series gives an interesting insight from the DEA’s perspective on Pablo Escobar hearing from some of the agents who fought against him in the brutal war on drugs.

Here are our top 5 parts from the series documenting the life of the drug kingpin Pablo Escobar and the Colombian Cartel:

  1. This description from the DEA on Pablo Escobar is just so apt

2. DEA agent talks about how they once seized 10,000 kg of cocaine

3. Pablo Escobar’s beginning in the cocaine trade learning the art of the bribe

4. The denouncing of Pablo Escobar by justice minister Rodrigo Lara Bonilla and his subsequent assassination by a 16 year old

5. The Avianca airlines bombing
