It will be co-hosted by investigative journalist Charlie Webster.
Produced by Lionsgate Sound and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s G-Unit Audio in collaboration with iHeartPodcasts, “Surviving El Chapo: The Twins Who Brought Down a Drug Lord” dives into the incredible story of the Flores brothers about how they 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 El Chapo. The two have interviewed Jay and Peter Flores in an undisclosed safe house, who will be speaking publicly about the story for the first time.
