The murder of sonny liston las vegas heroin and heavyweights a selection of the month on sports. Byline and i urge you to check it out. You will not be able to put down. This book sean. Let's talk about what you had to go through to get the information that you were able to get this book because as you pointed out in the last segment when people get to seventy or eighty years old they may remember some things but they may not remember. It added exactly was how challenging. Was that for you. Well it's really challenging and what you know. What you should know is that i write this book. Like it's a fast paced thriller fiction. Every word is true. And and you'll see where i try to be transparent about. Who said what they what they remembered. It went documents back them up. And i use the used every bit of the resource. The las vegas review journal to You know double check where. I could transcripts but also you. I mean what what. You'll read this book that you won't see anywhere else. Is that at the time he died. Sonny liston was under active investigation by the feds for drug theon. They they'd already met with him. An undercover officer met with into stinging. I talked to that lead agent and his plan was a month after sunny bef- although suddenly died a month later the the the agent was going to set up a by the wire sunny and wanted to make sunny route of friends. So that's the kind of trouble that he was in. He was dealing cocaine from the chemo. Room of the international. He was dealing with level. Not not big weight but then the less. That's a targeted him if he had worn wiring his friends. That's the kind of thing in las vegas gotcha killed. But that wasn't the only thing. I also found out and you won't anywhere else that A local drug dealer for ticket a contract out on his life why because he thought that sunny had ratted out to the cops. You'll also won't be anywhere else that that the whole second rematch the whole rematch with muhammad ali phantom punch fight Did sunny take a dive. I've become convinced the answer. Yes why because i met somebody who a very prominent figure former nevada assemblyman who is also the cpi what the time hanging around nineteen seventy liquor store where they would get drunker and drunker and drunker and boasted in one thousand nine hundred seventy that he was owed a cut of all of these mohammed. Ali's future earnings y. He said because he took a dive in nineteen sixty five for those earnings. Why does that matter. Nineteen seventy because ali was about to say still frazier and what was the fight of the century for five million dollars the biggest purse in boxing history who needed to have been talking about a five from nineteen sixty five to get in the way of all of that so the more i reported around the more i developed what i thought was an overwhelming case for the fact that there are a lot of people who wanted in dead. But that's still didn't tip the scales for me skills for me was when somebody sent me an envelope with no return. Address that contained two hundred seventy page. Transcript of an interview with the las vegas. Police niche and that's niche dozen years. After sonny's death pointed the finger at one man in the book. I call him suspect number one and it was a hero cop who broke bad and this niche said that that cop admitted to hand and he killed sunny listed in the last third of the book is what happens when i find that cop and i knock on. His door was the motivation for him. Killing him well The the story that gets told. I don't want to give too much away. Because i want there to be a certain amount of tension and surprise the reader but in the scenes of las vegas. This story was this hero. Cop who was breaking bad took a contract From somebody who very much wanted somebody dead. You know you talk in the book also about the relationship between listen and ali and you say listen felt that ali owed him money for a fix and that just doesn't jive with mohammed ali in any particular way. Can you go into that. A little deeper. Well what you'll notice. I didn't say. Muhammad ali knew that now. There's there's there's a couple of levels here right so you have. You have written walking around in nineteen seventy saying he's owed money from the sixty five site well number one. Was it the nation of islam. That that that you know. Elisha muhammadu struck a deal without telling ali possibly was his greatest recruiter to have ali win that second. Five minutes that the nation of islam would have its best recruiter in marketer championship title. But maybe that didn't even happen. Maybe he just believed that maybe somebody sonny's managers told him that it's all murky but the fact that the the fact is that semi believed it and he believed that and he was talking about it and that made a mark on your investigative reporter. And you're doing so in today's atmosphere. And i would think that there would be an impossibility of of keeping something like this under wraps. Was it just part of the times that it was easier for people to either bury or change the facts or do what they did that kept all of this unrecovered about sonny liston and his death it starts with the medical examiner's report right. I mean the medical examiner had to jump through hoops. And i'm not the first one to report the tasha. The mazing book called the devil and sunny. Listen i mean. He took a different approach than i did there. Different books but he noted You know a decade ago that the carters report makes no sense right so the the finding of natural causes makes no sense at all to did. Sonny's it was popularly believed accidentally overdosed on heroin. I don't believe that either there was a balloon with heroin found in his house. And that's not pretty much drove that theory. But i after careful study ron. I believe that balloon of heroin was planted by the cops so that they can get a search warrant his wife geraldine been in the house for two hours prior cleaned it up. There's no issue would have left something. Obviously balloons of heroin laying on the kitchen table. It's exactly the kind of thing the cops would have done. So i think that this whole thing was designed to keep A lot of stuff covered up. I think you would reopen this case. You'd find more than a killer of sonny liston who benefited the most from his death. Well you know you can. You can go big or small. I mean clearly clearly. The the people who are promoting ali frazier in mind. The fact that sunny wasn't around shooting his mouth off You know a local drug dealer seeking revenge casino executive. Who's tired of sunday coming after him. Asking for money You know somebody who perhaps heard that the feds were las vegas week placing law enforcement. They'd be seventy hers. The feds were on sunny. And what is the silence and before he could he could wear a wire or maybe it was something i didn't find but the title of the book suggests to me means that the preponderance of the evidence i've found ways to murder as a more likely explanation of either natural causes or an accidental. Did you go into the investigation of this subject Not thinking about whether it had been or not. And where was the tipping point for you. Sean in your investigation. That made you then believe that he was murdered. The tipping point was finding the the the story that that berlin peter's las vegas niche tells because at this point the the story had holes in it but it was so detailed that it couldn't just be made up of whole cloth there had to have been threads of if that were true and whether or not the cop who you who he fingers was the person or not it was just too much there for it not to have at least a ring of truth and frankly there was just too many people that study was running with were bad people Who had reason to one in debt and you know is this. Is this an utterly complete forensic You know book that's raise convicts somebody no but it is a template from for somebody who law enforcement if they wanted to reexamine this case and by the way. I'm not even sure that the book the last word as a today. I'm getting new information so this this examination goes on also did This story or the book that you've written did it. Change anything back in the seventies in las vegas or in boxing or in any other area his death so his death changed thing in las vegas. Right i mean obviously people were looking into it. Obviously they were unhappy with them. I mean it was. It was part of the times i mean. Boxing was a slimy business back. Then and i just wondered if anything that happened with him you know and how he died Changed anything either in the sport or in the city of las vegas. I don't believe so it's interesting because it was really the period on an era said it was raised by the mob in the nineteen fifties and the mob kept control of of boxing pretty much through his life. And and you never quite escape. those shackles. Fascinating is whether it was obvious frazier or whether it was the fact that you know so was buying of hotels in las vegas and and you saw corporate interests coming in. It was a really transitional time. But for las vegas and for boxing so in some respects the guts sunny. Listen the murder of somebody. Listen was was capstone to an era. Yeah that's what i thought i know. You're i hear in your voice the passion that you have for this book and how proud you of writing this particular book. Tell me a little bit about that passion and why this story means.

"This is america's sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's ron bar jonah. Sale is joined us again on sports. Byline sean is an award. Winning investigative writer with espn. The magazine and his books include unauthorized biography of the wwe. Vince mcmahon. It was called sex lies and head locks which was a new york times bestseller in. His new book is a real sports. Who done it. It's called the murder of sonny liston. Las vegas heroin and the heavyweights and sean. What i liked about this book is that it's a real reflection of the times. Also stated boxing at that time and also the belly of sin city. Las vegas did those all appeal to you as well. I mean they really really did what happened. Run the novel and it was a novel about unsolved murder. And i thought well you know what. Why am i doing fiction when you're just that's really tugging at me. Put the novel inside. And i decided to do a true crime nonfiction story and it turned out to be even stranger than fiction. It's really the story of this last year. Sunny listens life and i made a conscious decision to To write it like good detective fiction again. This is a highly reported book but the reader knows what's going to happen to main character. Of course the main character doesn't see sunny hurtling towards an abyss. You also see the las vegas one thousand nine hundred seventy which is really a transformational year for the city. The mob was being chased out by corporate interests. And you had this this really between white and black. Las vegas point out. Funny live in a suburb. Called paradise palms that was created to give the illusion of stability in the town. That i write were dads came home with four in the morning with sex and booze on that breath and studied way but as neighbors would he ran into the golf course in the mornings but at night he would go into the shiftless soul of the ghetto. And that's the other part of vegas. Nobody ever talks about which is the part where that had been redlined urban neglect. It was blighted and year that i write about nineteen seventy. They were race riots. So i i went to. The library looked at every day of every newspaper of the las vegas review journal. Thousand nine hundred seventy and i was really able to transport myself back to that time and the most fascinating i found was that in this deeply divided city was one man who managed to bridge those two worlds and it was running in the way he bridged. It was bhai driving from one to the other in his pink cadillac convertible. What was the state of boxing at that. Time sean. well actually. That's a great question line because it was still a time when heavyweights roamed the earth and they were giant figures. They really were revered figures. It's not like today. I mean when. Joe louis max fought that were proxy for their country. Floyd patterson sunday i rest of the crown from was the face of an emerging civil rights movement later. Muhammad ali became. The voice of a generation and sunny was was thrown into that neither educated nor particularly well-spoken and as a result what he he didn't so much win the crown he it he grabbed it from floyd. Patterson i write in the book that he he had a jab that hit with the force of a government crash test but he also had these menacing. Is they actually look out at you. All these years later from my book jacket and they were is that had dead reckoning in there's no soul under them and they were the froze as opponents. Flip patterson famously who lost in the first round of both fights had a car waiting for him because he knew he was gonna lose so quickly. That's how scared he was a sunny. So you know sonny. Liston was a a major figure thrown into a time where he couldn't compete with the heavyweights allowed him for cultural credibility and as a result of america developed a hate relationship with white america. Hated him because they thought it was a monster and black american hated him because he wasn't a quote unquote. You know educated negro. They wanted to put the face of their of their new mo- movement and suddenly suddenly became very bitter about that. A little bit about the background because we got a lot of young listeners. That don't even know the name. Sonny liston but tell me a little bit about how he emerged to the level that he did as a boxer well. Sunny comes out of arkansas. The dirt dirt poverties the twenty four. Th of twenty five kids he He goes to st louis in the early fifties in search of his mother and winds of finding the mob as a family instead. He's a straight guy and he goes to prison. You know the team. And i write the book. Most people lose their lives livelihoods in prison sunny found his. He came out Exam boxing and he came out as as a golden gloves wiz the mob took him under their belt. They promoted him and some sunny suddenly started flooring people one after another after another as one observer said could knock the head off a water buffalo. He was a sensation and by the time he fled. Patterson in nineteen sixty two. The world was talking about sonny liston maybe be hard to imagine. But you know my my tyson pattern himself on sunny. Any number of of cultural figures. Look to sonny as a template for the original gangster. Sonny's within was america's monster and to some extent he played that role but he also deep is hard parts and they're right about. The book really wanted to rule as as more of a beloved champion. Just american never loved him. What was the introduction of drugs for him or was that something that happened with a lot of athletes particularly in boxing at that particular time. They've been in america in that particular time and midland. There's no shortage of people. Tell you that they were around sunny. While he was training for the sights. Smell the scotch at ten in the morning. Yes sunny like to drink. He he by by the you know mid sixties when it comes to las vegas share of cocaine. Everybody did in las vegas Later he began to deal with this year of cocaine. What was really debilitating. I write about in the book was when he started to turn to heroin and people say well. How can you fight on terror. Well maybe you can't. Although joe louis was quite the addict and his day but what he did was he really wants in the last year of his life so there was ample room for him to discover heroin as i i show you. You've never heard this before. But he was working for a criminal can criminal gang and the you know the the son of the gang leader tells me that he would do heroin. With sonny sonny would sniff it and people said sunday was afraid of needles or stop and that didn't stop them from kierra when he dismissed it. So y'all dating junkie cocktail waitress. And all of this combined to create this figure that i portray in the book of a formerly great fighter a world of worldwide icon. Who was a very much a diminished figure in the last year it life and he was making enemies just about everywhere he went. We've seen movies about the los angeles and how the cops treated people the same thing. Of course you bring out in the book. The las vegas how it wasn't politicians and then you add the mob to that. Tell me a little bit about what the atmosphere was like when he was in las vegas. Well i mean you see you. Had you know you had the white las vegas and the black vegas and the cops were. We'll just brutally violent about having that level of segregation as one is one of the first african-american officers on the force told me they used to have a epa. They would right when a African american with found on the strip after after After dark they'd arrest him for vagrancy and they'd right. Mls on their booking sheet and that's stood for epithet on the strip so you know that was the way is that was the way that whites and blacks dealt with each other in those days and it was. It was a brutal time The mob was still in control but losing it was trying to hold on with everything they had..

"Eighties as we move forward. Well you know you took these things because you wanted to represent your country and it was a these things were as much a a weapon of the cold. War is as you know the You know nuclear weapons. Were i mean you know. The cold war was fought out on the olympic stage as much as it was fought out on the battlefield and and or or the political field and steroids were very much grew up through the olympics. And it was a matter. Each olympics was sort of a ya dress rehearsal of the greatest athletes and the greatest chemists and for the longest time countries. We're complicit in that and i write about this one of the characters. In my book is america's great olympic steroid hundred don catlin who was in the forefront from seoul and he watched ben johnson stripped and all the way forward. And you see how the scientists tried to keep pace. And i think that's one of the most interesting parts of the book really is to watch from the chief steroid hunters perspective. How each olympics was kind of a a a secret war unto itself. I'm going to get into the in the next section. The breakdown of the different People but i know that this story is part. Detective story part medical investigation and part sociological examination. Let's talk about the detective story as you were kind of peeling away. The layers of the onion here to write this story Take me through the detective part of this story. Well i mean you know one of the books primary characters. is the you know. The person who really did more than anything to popularize steroids in the early eighties author of the original underground steroid handbook and then was dan. Shane and you know he started with a noble intent which was to sort of try to create a constituency for this drug that he thought was a miracle drug. The olympics were coming into la nine hundred eighty four th. The disease. Aids was beginning. Its failed migration down the pacific coast and if he thought you know at that time that he was going to do something that could could really promote this miracle drug He also learned what i think is essential truth of the book which is steroids are like a smoldering fire and and they're very very hard to control. Which is why you absolutely need to be doing this with the doctor supervising because you know it will take you over and the drugs took him over and what you see is he became a smuggler. He became an international fugitive. He went through to prison terms and the cops. The cops basically chased him and you see through much of his life that he was a man on the run essentially it'd become a fugitive and some of the best detective scenes. Or when you see the there are you know Fbi agents who are realizing that steroid are much bigger than than they ever thought. And you you see this dawning on law enforcement you see ultimately the reaction which is some incredibly you know Intense cat and mouse games. What did you find through the medical investigation in this story. Well that that It's hard as the drug testers. Tried to catch Catch these these guys. There was always a chemist always a chemist ready to to one up them and while the belco scandal brought us infamous. Drug like t. h. g. and and Nor vodafone in fact. It's something that's gone on forever and you know one of the great scenes in the book is when the Seuss for the Stena cycling team in the tour de france is stopped by police in a little town near leone with with everything from heroin to epsco to You know bottles of vodka in the back of his car. I mean you know you realize that athletics is is is really just almost entirely pharmacological when you when you read some of these stories and the sociological examination turned up. What well that. I think It's it's increase sports reflection of life and that For all the people who are doing this stuff they wanna turn back the clock just as much as we do. And where is the dividing line between sports and life. And i think it's one of the fundamental questions of the book asks I think that that we have a compelling reason to regulate these drugs in sport that First of all. I mean you can talk about the effect on kids. Secondly you can talk about An even playing field. I think those are legitimate and compelling reasons to regulate the drug but once you talk about life and and you know people's desires to turn back the clock. I think that you know the idea. Of regulation is is a little murkier. Shouldn't do we have a right to do for our bodies.

Cover of a book Reduce the type. I'm assuming sean that this was maybe a very tough assignment in writing this book because looking just at the acknowledgments and the sources. It's a small book and itself. Ron i mean. It was a book that i felt i had to write. I mean coming off of the. Vince mcmahon by I got thrown right into the belco scandals free.

Nineteen seventies arnold schwarzenegger pumping iron in right in the beginning of the book. You know at that point you gold's gym was like a A muscle head studio fifty. Four and i tried to trace the spread of steroids from there. Is it fair to say sean that this is a dirty little secret. That's finally come out. Yeah i think it's fair to say that it's a. It's a secret that we all we all want this. And we all wanted fountain of youth and you know this is a look at our culture. It's not just a sportsbook. It's a look at these anti aging doctors that that you know thousands and thousands of us are pouring into. It's a look at high school kids and and you know their their aspirations. And how this drug kind of you know really sours and it's a it's just a look at a performance our performance enhancing appetites before we go back and look back. Let me go forward for just a second. I mean now that you've written the book now that you've done the research. Is this genie. That's out of the bottle that i'll never be put back in that bottle. Never be put back in the bottle on. Never i mean you you know what the drug enforcement administration is trying mightily. But i think that for a lot of people look at at their body is personal choice and i think that's right now. The great debate that's going on almost reminiscent of the drug. Wars of the sixties you know. Is this something that in life we should be able to use. Is this something in sports that we should regulate is something that we should ban for kids. These are all these questions that are floating out there right now. Let's talk a little bit about the history of steroids. Because i think we have to have that as a foundation give a a primer on it. Well you know. I go back and actually in this book found doctor dr Zero i mean he was a doctor who was trying to help the united states Combat the russians and the olympics. Here the russians were using their own data back even the nazis and And he decided to make an american version of what they were using. It was called diana ball. it was sold To a drug company that made it in the olympians used it in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and it was a drug that started as a drug of optimism and as i write in the book it really meets the crossroads of optimism and africa's because it started getting used by weightlifters on the on the west coast football players on the east coast and by the time the seventy started. You know. Steroids really were america's little secrets. You know sean. The interesting thing about steroids is it has a good side and it has a bad side. Because if it's used in the proper way for the proper reasons it can be very very helpful healthwise explain a little bit about that. Then we'll get into the bad side. Yeah i mean you know. When when when joe biden the senator from delaware was holding hearings to criminalise steroids in a doctor from the american medical administrators association testified. Look these things have therapeutic uses They can they can help you With with everything from third degree burns and recovering from those all the way to. Just you know Recalibrating your hormones. If if you wind up you know being a An older person with with you know sort of hormonal shortages and under a doctor's supervision. There there are therapeutic reasons to take these things. The key is doctor supervision because you know left alone and and the guy in the back of the gym was going to tell you this is. This is great. You really are. You're you're you're playing russian roulette with your body. The thing that i find interesting about it is the complexity of the reasons. And what i mean by that is. There's a political component to all of this is they're not and i'm talking about the east germans and others Especially in the soviet bloc during political time in which sports was Giving you a kind of a stature that you couldn't get elsewhere so if you one then you were going to get notoriety meaning for our country. Our political system. And how did that play into all of this at the particular time. Back in the say the sixties seventies.

It was called Diana Ball. It was sold to a drug company that made it in the Olympia used it in nineteen, sixty four and it was a drug that started as a drug.

Well I mean the you know one of the books primary characters is the you know the person who really did more than anything to popularize steroids in the early eighties the author of the original underground steroid handbook name was Dan Duchenne.

Times bestseller and he has done it again he has a new book out called steroid nation juice home run totals, anti-aging miracles, and a Hercules in every high school the secret history of America's True Drug Addiction. How did you get all of that on a on the jacket cover of a book? Reduced the type. I'm assuming Sean that this was a very tough assignment and writing this book because in looking just at the acknowledgments and the sources, it's a small book and itself. Yeah Ron I mean it was a book that I felt I had to write I mean coming off of the Vince McMahon by. I got thrown right into the BELCO scandals in magazine and having spent three years in the middle of the PALCA scandals, Barry, bonds Marion Jones, Tim Montgomery I. I just wound up feeling like what's the story behind the headlines and you know that took me past. Vince. All the way back to the the gyms of Venice beach the in the late Nineteen Seventies Arnold Schwarzenegger pumping iron and as I right in the beginning of the book now at that Point Judy, gold? Gym. was like a a muscle head studio fifty four and I tried to trace the spread steroids from there. Is it fair to say Sean that this is a dirty little secret that's finally come out. Yeah I think it's fair to say that it's a it's a secret that we all we all want and and we all want that Fountain of Youth, and this is a look at our culture. It's not just a sportsbook. It's a look at these anti aging doctors that that you know thousands and thousands of us are pouring into a look at high school kids and and you know. Their their aspirations and how this drug kind of really shower some and it's a it's just a look at a performance, our performance enhancing appetites. Before we go back and look back let's go forward or for justice second. I mean now that you've written the book now that you've done the research, is this a genie that's out of the bottle that never be.

"Thinking it was like I can wear like those roby things like girls where you're just like hang out because it's an on the one hand that could be healthy but on the other hand it might not be. Jonah sales skyrocketed. I saw that yesterday. But but I would say one thing that I noticed with with the this sense of alienate or whatever start sounding Marxist. But as a as mom. I went to graduate school so I was. I know I can't. I owe a person's ideas you can't that's okay with you. You're not going to be offended but I I went to graduate school so I was like thirty and I was an investment. Pay Or stuff like that and like something in me. Wanted to be a stay at home. Mom just always since I was a little girl wanted to be a mom and so I really would never pursue that kind of a career because I wanted to stay home and I noticed when I did stay home. Maybe this is just me. Maybe this isn't a universal phenomenon but for me like I got so much more satisfaction out of like setting my own schedule and keep it like I joke. I was like I keep the cave. I wrote the antelope. He kills the antelope. You know nothing has changed at all the dogs like you know they alert and they keep the thing clean and I just. I felt a much greater sense of satisfaction. I started to realize why people would want to quote work for themselves or that kind of thing and and then I started to realize like there is a certain primitive value and autonomy in what I'm doing that is highly connected so the value I'm nurturing my offspring and it's it feels right and I feel the same thing about people get so excited. They grow a single freaking tomato takes a year and they're just like that. Let us let us honor and cherish this tomato about about the satisfaction of doing something correct. When I just feel like that's that the antithesis is what we're what we're all being directed into and they have such a stranglehold over the mind of the use so one of the things I wanted to ask you like coming around to what Pete Ken Otis said like He. He's no longer calling himself. An anarchist is gonNA call himself in or he has become an address which I still. I don't I don't know enough about. It's actually label myself such an aspiring actress day. Think and I feel like maybe kind of too old to learn how to grow an avocado tree or or wait for a pear tree to bear fruit. They say pear tree our grandchildren. I don't know if you've ever heard that but my kids are teenagers and they could walk the path that you're walking if you can't plug an Xbox to that pear tree you ain't getting my kid anytime soon. So what's the what's the what's the awakening? You sound like you gotTa wake and Quite Young. But what do you do? You See. This whole thing is moving us in any kind of more like deeply. Greenlee wokers direction is a good question. I mean I think in a lot of ways. Okay well I guess I. I don't know what camp you're in if you think you know. The viruses is a naturally occurring phenomenon as the official narrative is. Or if you think that there was you know that escaped from the lab lime even beyond any of that. I actually question the the what we're told about viruses in general and so from the very beginning of this thing. I was not really worried about it. As killing sixty five million people like the events. Hooah one scenario implied. Because I mean you have to be fundamentally weeks really that sick from what they call a virus so I don't think it came from a lab. I think that I do think that there's a narrative that is not true around it but I'm not like fundamentally fearful of the sickness are you an HIV skeptic. Is My brother died of AIDS? They say and he insisted it was. Act HAD NO SYMPTOMS. He took azt and ever since then. I've noticed that I don't know anybody who died of AIDS who did not take. Azt So yes. I'm a bit of an HIV skeptic. I'm reading your book. Reinventing the AIDS virus right now. I can't speak to any of this because it's not something I've studied. I do think that the the idea of pandemics as a as a general phenomenon whether you whatever one thinks about this particular one. It is kind of implicitly. Green anarchist friendly says big phenomenon. In that what what? Many of us have been saying for years. Is this idea that you can't have this deeply unnatural way of life and this highly dense will population centers and that sort of thing without eventually getting some kind of major blowback just as a result of ecological feedback. So I would like to say that I actually think that's closer to what I think AIDS is that I think that these things that makes us so sick are a a function of the artificial environment. I don't think that it's a standalone microbial phenomenon. I think that we are weak. And and we are bombarded by these artificial things. We've just not designed to deal with them and we also are not next to guard against them and we're not even. I don't think there ever being honest with us about about it. And so we were doubly armed yeah I mean you get. These strange diseases like chronic fatigue syndrome. You know it's as if you're just sort of generally screwed up in your body and you get these mental illnesses like I said depression before and you have at least some set of people who come from this very materialist perspective. Who Say oh you know. Depression is just a problem with your brain chemistry. I mean it's not problem with your brain chemistry that we are giving people a way of life that is bereft of meaning. We're giving people a way of life. That doesn't actually meet the deepest human needs and someone is reacting to that in this global psychological way even if they don't know exactly what the problem is even if they can name at themselves as for whether this will wake people in a way that I would like to. I don't know because it unfortunately I'm seeing how much it's just like everything. It get sucked into his culture wars narrative. Yes and I think the culture wars narrative is one of the most powerful psychological weapons that the have and it's as if there's almost nothing that can happen that maybe against Jeffrey up Stein's death is one of the only recent events that kind of escaped the culture. Wars almost everything. Just get sucked into the vacuum of you know One set of people are protesting. All those people are fascists and trump supporters. And they're gonNA killed. And then you know the flip side of it is. Oh you're afraid of the disease will cause you're a some sort of sentimental wimp and so forth yet it just doesn't it it it ruins and the revelatory potential of these phenomena by obfuscating them into okay. You can have two or maybe three views about this and it has to be tied to your political tribe. It's a brilliant way for them to cover up any contribution. They make to the catastrophe by kind of owning this idea of hoax. Or conspiracy theory putting things out there that touch on some of the truths in the theory that they were behind. It's not basically advertise the fact. So it's I barely theory but they certainly but then they take that and they they assign that to one of the sides and and put that next person with a swastika and then you've got I. It's just a disaster but before I just WANNA say one thing. I read an article recently. About how working in dirt is it has is correlated with the Reduced Depression. So like if. I take PROZAC. You're allergic garden. And I just thought yes. Scratching further study is needed etcetera. Like I it I think one of the funniest things for me recently has been this. You know in a in a sort of new agey type circles than I think. This term has come up forest bathing. They're it's literally this idea of how you go out in the woods and it will make you feel better and the idea that this has to be understood as this niche health exercise that you can do for yourself that to me shows how deeply can use the word alienated. We are from the natural world that you would think of. Oh I'm GonNa go do some forest bathing as if it's this eccentric idiosyncratic activity that you do for your health rather than just being part of what it means to him being and I and I wondered too if that makes it quite elite in that I saw the same thing when I was growing up in New York upstate New York and for Rockland County and behind my house. We weren't rich report but like I'm a little house was a lot of woods and I can still see the woods behind my mother's aspen if you walk like three feet in if it were if it's in the winter you can see that it's just all houses behind there now and and so. When I was little I could go into the woods and we would find old couches and drag him back there. And you know there's disgusting but we had some kind of sense of that but now it seems that anything that would be like large and foresty is is land either owned by the government or by Warren Buffett or. There's these beauty strips that are just alongside that there's actually almost no way and then the environmental movement talk about like having I the culture war it makes it. I was raised to be a conservationist father would say not an environmentalist but like to have that respect for God's creation kind of and it it makes people immediately turn off who are on one side of the political spectrum or the other that environmentalists will call attention to the. They'll say we need more national parks. And I I don't because I don't trust the government. I don't really think that's the answer I feel like that's taking everything. Actually offline and what you need is a more decentralized ownership of this stuff and I feel like we just don't feel like we don't have access to forest bathing. It has to be a destination. It has to be vacation. You have to make an appointment. Probably have to pay for it. What they've done a little bit to prevent people from going out into nature especially right now. Is they're promoting stuff like virtual trails virtual rivers experienced nature. Virtually there were there. Therefore you don't have to actually go outside and you still forget your murder warriors things that I didn't even know about and there's murder Hornets and they're telling you that had this argument..

"Some extent he he played that role but he also Defense Harken they write about. This book really wanted to rule as as more of a you know. Beloved champion just American Erkin. Never loved him. What was the introduction of drugs for him or was that just something that happened with a lot of athletes particularly in boxing at that particular time in America in that particular time and there's no shortage of people tell you that they were around sunny while he was trained for various sites and smell the Scotch ten in the morning? Yeah Sunny liked to drink by by the you know mid sixties when it comes to Las Vegas also like to do is share of cocaine. Everybody did in Las Vegas Later began to deal to share of cocaine what was really debilitating. The book was when he started to Turn to heroin and and people say well how can you fight on heroin. Well maybe you can't although Joe Louis was quite the addict and his day but he did. was He really only fought once in the last year of his life. So there's ample room for him to discover heroin and as I show you. You've never heard this before. But he was working for a criminal can criminal gang and and and the you know this is the son of the gang leader tells me that he would Carolina Sunny and seventy what's sniffing and people said. Sunday was afraid of needles. Well that doesn't stop and that didn't stop them from doing heroin. Stiffed it so you also dating a junkie cocktail waitress. And all of this combines to create this figure AH portraying the book of a formerly great fighter a world worldwide icon who was a very much diminished figure in the last your life if he was making enemies just about everywhere he went. You know we've seen movies about Los Angeles and how the cops treated people the same thing. Of course you bring out in the booked looked Las Vegas how it wasn't politicians and then you add the mob to that. Tell me a little bit about what the atmosphere was like when he was in Las Vegas. Well when you say you had you had the White Las Vegas and the blacklist Vegas and the cops were were just brutally violent about maintaining that level of segregation as a AH was one of the first African American officers On the force told me they used to have a epithet that would right when a African American was found on the Strip after after you know after dark. They'd arrested for vagrancy and they'd right in less booking sheet and that's stood for at the on the Strip so you know that was the way that was the way the whites and blacks dealt with each other in those days and it was. It was a brutal time The mob Bob was still in control but losing trying to hold on with everything they had. Meanwhile you had these these icons figures and I write about it in the book. I recreate that world. The Frank Sinatra's playing with the fans Elvis's at the International Howard Hughes running empire from the task of the desert. And as a matter of fact. There's a great scene with Howard Hughes that I won't give away here but you know it just it just combined from sort of cinematic feel I'm trying to create. I hope that created in the book I mean. I think it's like watching a movie except it's all real. We've got about two minutes left before we have to break. But Sean when you take a look at the whole story what was it. That intrigued you. The most that made you think this this was a homicide not an heroin overdose. Well I you know it was the preponderance of the information. I was turning up. There's been a lot of information that's been turned up about sunny. But my idea going in was if I took a laser light to their last year of his life. What would I find what I found down with? Constellation of characters that he was dealing with and a lot of them had good reason to want him out of the way in dead and I write about who they are and how he had stumbled with them and the we talk more about that but the bottom line is Sonny Liston in the final year it was like living carelessly recklessly and he had his foot on the gas time where he should have been wise enough to know that it was time to take it off in about a minute was there anything and you started to do. You know unravel the onion onion a little bit here. was there anything that surprised you in that investigation. Well everything's surprised me. I think really surprised me was how many secrets were. Ah The cat that people now in their seventies and early eighties or finally sort of willing to talk about But look I mean there. There were wildly corrupt town and and what was perhaps most surprising with away sunny managed to weave his way through it. I mean he's character is one of these he's trying to get redemption and he can't. He can't seem to find a way to be the man Dan he wants to be and so he just turns his back on life and just screw it. I won't try to be the band. America wants me to be. I'll be the man I WANNA be. That's what you see. You see him returning to his Gangsta Routine uh-huh complexity that I found seventy listed was what kept driving me wanting to know him better wanting to understand more and wanting to understand why he drove himself to the bitch.

"Again on Sports Byline Sean is an award winning investigative writer with Espn the magazine and his books looks included an unauthorized biography of the WWe's Vince McMahon. It was called sex lies and head locks which was a New York Times bestseller in his new. You book is a real sports who done it. It's called the murder of Sonny Liston Las Vegas heroin and the heavyweights and Sean what I liked about. This book is that it's a real real reflection of the times also the state of boxing at that time and also the underbelly of Sin City Las Vegas those all appeal to you as well. I mean they really really did well. What happened the novel and it was a novel about an unsolved murder and I thought well you know what why am I doing fiction? When there's other taste? It's really been tugging at me. Put the novel inside and I decided to do a true crime nonfiction story and it turned out to be even stranger than fiction. It's really the story of this last year. Sunny listens life and I made a conscious decision to to write like good detective fiction again. This is a highly reported book but the reader knows what's going to happen to main character of course the main character doesn't see you see sunny hurtling towards an abyss. You'll also see the Las Vegas of nineteen eighteen seventy which was really a transformational year for the city. The mob was being chased out by corporate interests and you had this really the schism between white and Black Las Vegas and as I pointed out sonny lived in a suburb Paul Paradise Palms that was created to give me a loser stability the town. I'm good I write we're we're dads came home with four in the morning with sex and booze on their breath and study wave it is it is neighbors when he ran at the golf course in the mornings but at night he would go into the shiftless so of a ghetto and that's the other part of Las Vegas and nobody ever talks about which is the part where that have been redlined redlined into urban neglect it was blighted and in the year that I write about nineteen seventy. There were race riots so I I went to the the library he looked at every day of every newspaper of Las Vegas Review Journal for Nineteen Seventy and I was really able to transport myself back to that time and the most fascinating thing I found was that in deeply divided city was one man who managed to bridge those two worlds and it was something in the way he bridged it was by driving from from one to the other in his pink Cadillac convertible. What was this data boxing at that time Sean well actually that's a great question she wanted because it was still a time? When heavyweights roamed the earth and they were giant figgers they really were revered figures? It's not like today I mean when Joe Louis Max schmeling fought they were proxy for their country Floyd. Patterson study first wrested the crown from was the face of an emerging civil rights movement later Muhammad Ali became the voice of the generation and sunny was was thrown into that and he was neither educated nor particularly well-spoken and as a result where he he didn't win the crown as is he stole it. He grabbed it from Floyd Patterson. I write in the Book that he had a jab that that hit with the force of government crash test but he also also had these medicine is actually looked out at you all these years later from my book jacket and there were is that had dead reckoning in there's no soul under them and is it froze his opponents flip patterson famously who lost the first round of both fights had a car waiting for him because he knew he was Lusa quickly. That's how scared he was sunny so you know Sonny liston was a a major figure thrown into a time where he couldn't compete with the heavyweights around him for for cultural credibility and as a result America developed a relationship with White America hated him thought he was a monster on Sir and Black America heated because he wasn't a quote unquote. You know educated need where they wanted to put a face of their of their new movement and Sunny Sunday became very very bitter about that. Tell me a little bit about the background because we got a lot of young listeners that don't even know the name Sonny Liston but tell me a little bit about how he emerged to the level that he did as a boxer sir well it comes out of Arkansas you know the dirt dirt poverties the twenty four th of twenty five kids he he goes to say Louis in the early sixties in search of his mother and winds up finding the mob is a family instead. He's a straight guy and he goes to prison. You know the teen and you you know I read the book. Most people lose their lives livelihoods in prison sunny found his he came out boxing and he came out as as a golden gloves wiz. The mob took him under their belt. They promoted him and some semi suddenly started flooring people one after another after another one observers said he could knock the head off a water buffalo. He was a sensation and by the time he he met Floyd Patterson. In nineteen sixty two the world was talking about Sonny Liston and maybe hard to imagine but you know Mike Mike Tyson patterned himself on Sunday on any number of of cultural figures look to Sonny as a template for the original gangster Sonny Sonny Liston was America's monster and dishonesty played that role but he also Dita's harder parks worried about this in the book really wanted to rule as as more of a you know beloved champion America Never Loved Him. What was the introduction of drugs for him or was that just something that happened with a lot of athletes particularly in boxing at that particular time they've been in America in that particular time the midland is no shortage of people who will tell you that they were around funny while he was training for various sites and smell the scotch ten in the morning? You know sunny liked to drink he by I by the mid sixties when he comes to Las Vegas he also do sheriff cocaine. Everybody did Las Vegas later. He began to deal to share of cocaine. What was really debilitating? Whatever about the book was when he started to turn to heroin and people say well? How can you fight on heroin well? Maybe maybe you can't although Joe Louis was quite the addict and his day but what study did was really only fought once in the last year of his life so there was ample room for him to discover heroin and that's why I show you you've never heard this before but he was working for criminal can criminal gang and the you know the the thought of the gang leader tells tells me that he would do terrible with Sonny Sonny would sniff it and people said Sunday was afraid of needles stop and that didn't stop them from doing hair when he just sniffed it so so Yeltsin was dating a junkie cocktail waitress and all of this combines to create this figure that I portray in the book of a formerly arrate fighter a world worldwide icon who was very much diminished figure in the last year of life and he was making enemies just about everywhere he went you know we've seen movies about Los Angeles and how the cops treated people the same thing of course you bring out in the Book Las Vegas how it wasn't politicians and then you add the mob to that. Tell me a little bit about what the atmosphere was like when he was in Las Vegas well. I mean you see you had you. You know you had the White Las Vegas and the Black Las Vegas and the cops were we'll just brutally violent about maintaining that level of segregation one. There's one of the first African American officers on the forest told me they used to have a epic that they would write a African American was found on the Strip after after you know after dark they'd arrest him for vagrancy and they'd right. NMLS booking sheet and that stood for Epithet on the Strip so you know that was the way is it that was the way that whites and blacks dealt with each other in those days and it was a brutal time the mob was still in control but losing it was trying to hold hold on with everything they had meanwhile you had these these that connick figures and they write about it in the book. I recreate that world or Frank Sinatra's playing with the fans eldest is at the International Howard Hughes running his empire from the Pentastar the desert and as a matter of fact. There's a great scene with our youth and I won't give away a year but you you know it just it just combined for sort of cinematic feel trying to create. I hope I created in the book. I mean I do think it's like watching a movie except it's all real. We've got about two minutes left before we have to break Sean. When you take a look at the whole story what was it that intrigued you? The most that made you think this was a homicide and not an in heroin overdose well. I you know it was the preponderance of the information I was turning up. There's been a lot of information that's been turned up about Sunny Onyx but my idea going in was if I took a laser light to the last year of his life. What would I find what I found was a constellation of characters that he was dealing with breath and a lot of them had good reason to want him out of the way in dead and I write about who they are and how he had stumbled with them and to talk talk more about that but the bottom line is that somebody lives in in the final year of his life was living carelessly recklessly and he had his foot on the gas at a time where he should could have been wise enough to know that it was time to take it off in about a minute was there anything you started to do. You know unraveled the onion a little bit here. was there anything that surprised you in that investigation investigation well. Everything's surprised me what I think really most surprised me with some of these secrets were had kept that people now now in their seventies and early eighties or finally sort of willing to talk about but look I mean th th there there were I. It was a wildly corrupt town and and what was perhaps most surprising was the way you manage to leave his way through it. I mean he's character is one of these. He's trying to get redemption and he can't. He can't seem to find a way to be the man he wants to be and so he just turns his back on life and just screw America wants to be to be. I'll be I wanna be that's what you see you see him returning to his gangster routes to the complexity that I found semi listed could with what kept driving me wanting him better wanting to understand him more and wanting to understand why he drove himself to ditch that he did Jonah sale is with US Again Award Award winning investigative writer with ESPN the magazine.

How much can I borrow how will pay for me? How much? Will I be able to pay? How much should I pay? Do I have to manage this on my own where can I get? How can I get my savings? So I, I think need advisers and will do for some time. But, but also people facing different situation divorcing moving from an apartment to a house often need someone to talk to, but more and more of the advice could be given by chapels using SMS sending mails just a phone. So fewer person than person's than earlier customers than earlier really need this person needs to talk to Mr. something so but that's about us being able to be more and more transparent. Being more efficient and being more customer Centric first of all, so, so people aren't just yet. I, we could probably who podcast on what being human and having that kind of pass. No feeling.

"Day of April coming on here. And we'll get more other travelers weather jump right in big Ed was asking about indeed he is one hundred percent, correct. The ports would not be equipped by no means at this point to pick up on all of the cargo that's coming in via trucking because based on the numbers right now about two thirds of the the cross cut free trade comes in via truck solely about thirteen percent coming in by sea cargo containers in about the same about coming in by by rail, but a report from about eight months ago from the journal of commerce says importers from Mexico are increasingly turning to ocean services. Connecting to Florida ports to serve central Florida in the southeast avoiding the risk of higher cost longer. Transits and sharper delays from your conventional land routes across the US, Mexico border, L what most surprised me about this is you can actually. We get the cargo there quicker, which I would have never guessed using contained reports from Mexico to Florida. The port of Tampa said cargo volume on two routes started about two years ago. And have increased dramatically by two hundred thirty two percent in two thousand seventeen ninety percent increase in two thousand eighteen a large part serving the central Florida market, but they're looking to leverage that business to encourage shippers to consider moving cargo into Atlanta, South Carolina, even the northeast from the port. The port of Miami started investigating ways to increase their Mexican business about five years ago. But the progress really picked up when Grupo Mexico Transportes purchased Florida east coast railway in two thousand seventeen. Now, the the port of Miami director of global trade and business cited an example of moving a container from central Mexico to Atlanta explaining how this could be attractive. If we do it all trucking, it would take six days cost you about six thousand dollars. If you go to the coast and send it from either Veracruz or Tampico to Miami, then up to Atlanta, it would be four days in the cost would be say thirty five hundred to four thousand dollars, you're saving both time and money. The see also offers a simpler move, according to the ports cross-border freight by land is a thriving business. But it involves multiple trucks multiple stopping points. A lot of paperwork and a third party logistics company to handle the process, and then they go into the amount at least as of about eight months ago. That's when the numbers cited about two thirds of all the border trade comes in via truck. But yeah, it looks like based on the cost if you're gonna save two thousand dollars per container. Yeah. Going from say six thousand under four thousand that's just get it to Atlanta. That's not getting into the northeast or into the mid west and things like that. But that's kinda surprising. How about that? Big, ed. Yeah. Stay right now that kind of information they'd be out here in the public. Doc and see what President Trump Trump suit, but they're gonna to set and they're going to try to great beer, what happened when you create fear. Then the marketers I start playing with the money Roger start shoot-em-up based on what you read the whole lot. Jay. I see. No reason why Mexico situated around over to California. Some of the mid west and the Pacific northwest. Based on. Florida. And go around Tampa, Florida Jonah sale up halfway up at east coast drop off up Carolina Virginia that would cover that to be county. And then. Now now. Older. Now, my lead. What I would watch the news early that morning. I will what I would picking up all. And maybe I'm wrong, correct? Got a lot of people are now coming up. The actual order geic, correct? Yep. Walk at a crawl stopping tonight. We wanna file right turn it literally turning themselves into border officials. Okay. And that's what President Trump's trying to stop my correct now. Wait about the wall. I'm talking about that why won't shut the motor now. Yes. Now, let's go to rail so Updike and. Sure, they can steal stuff up. The center of the country. Up on up into the mid west like Montana, Minnesota, whatever was got me absolutely though. But this has got at so. Brent that Trump can do this and still tape our economy from gone erratic and crazy, but they information you just read state public has got to be educated owner say I. I. I was watching it this morning. I'm thinking there is no reason because the news media are going to go. We're gonna have a shortage shortage of that. And I'm thinking, whoa. What my that's not my thing. Especially when you got that big Gulf of Mexico. Right. I can start port some of that stuff by walk. Down right. Route across area. View all the not appreciate that information. You really? All right. Ed. That's what we try to do. They went on talking about the reliability factor. If at the end of.
