"pablo escobar" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM

"Would you spell right now looks like Pablo Escobar was here a lot of the sugar you put your team normally I put a month not long but something that's called monk not in here absolutely you're a state half of those wonderful sounds appetizing who named after okay what's called multi not that sounds very very plus and this is the Gatos and Chad show straight up with the the the media here and I know that it's your job to ask the tough questions but there's no there's no magical decision or or golden a government action that will stop this virus it is among us it is widespread and it is growing to see yesterday that got Chad Benson here get us in Chad Gaydos not so much Lloyd price I think it is a trying to get the job today I think it is this is it this could be his this big huge day we wish him all the best in that and no executive orders you see in some places the Scottsdale say we're gonna we're gonna chill for the weekend got what thirty four plus hundred again today we're sitting around here thinking to ourselves we're watching taxes roll back some of their stuff Florida rolling back some of their stuff and we're through with the yellow light here in Arizona as what the governor said yesterday we're on pause when you heard that what you think although it was a joke and the way he explains it no I was sitting at home watching it yesterday I was working from home and I texted a few people here at work and I said the governor sounds deflated and desperate and you could throw depressed in there too he he sounded all those things and it sounded to me like this is exactly like how he treated masks two weeks ago where he said Hey I want everybody to wear a mask but he didn't make that a big deal and it sounds to me like he wants everybody to stay home but he's not going to declare another executive order calling for a stay at home he does sure he could handle he can't but for the economy and for the people doing that is I wouldn't even write about the business owners who would be ticked at him too well the but on top of that I mean not only just the business wealthy you don't want that I don't want that nobody wants nobody wants any but Arizona's been going in the wrong direction again the last couple weeks and the governor says we can look forward to that next week and the week after that too how close are we going to get to that magical hundred percent number with the hospitals is like preparing us for the worse so the way I look at this why isn't that kind of his job kind of a job but once again yesterday and I and I said this on my my other little show I do that I hear all these governors and none of them have a forward thinking plan they know exactly what is the issue that needs to be dealt with whether it is the the elderly the people of compromised immune systems come morbidities all of these things they know yet I don't hear any concrete plans on how we're gonna do better at protecting them and yesterday I watched a guy who quite frankly I was I've been frustrated with I was that was the first time I said I was really disappointed I just think he he he doesn't have an answer I think he's disappointed because for all those tools in the tool belt that he talked about over the last month or two that Arizona could go to jail I think he's now realize that short of a stay at home order and short of the surge beds which he talked about in the past and if we get closer on hospitals will have to go to we don't have a lot of options the worry yes it does worry me I was looking at some models last night they're not now not those kind of model see if the models that you say that because you know throwing a dart at the board they do I mean they feel like it I mean I can't we we should appear so guess I'll sit and we've got our top yeah I'm watching Kelly Clarkson got your eighty five screens so we you know it's just like being in my house right so AT and I'll see one model appears as a hundred and forty seven thousand people that by mid July and it'll be it'll say two hundred twenty two thousand what about this model did you see this one it says twenty eight thousand new infections a day in Arizona by July eighteenth that worries me right now all right four hundred and twenty eight thousand a day do you realize that's that's the size of Florence every single day I find that hard to believe I do wanna know what it is why don't you know don't contest that many people I mean how many we have testing it I do know I mean what's the the average round about well if they're saying right now that isn't it roughly ten percent a little over ten percent like today it ticked up from ten point nine eleven point one but how many of the testing right so if you'd come out you can do math as well as I can about thirty five thousand so we're out to two hundred eighty thousand right that that's even if that's true I don't even know if we can test fifty thousand a day right now have you noticed the numbers have kind of peak right around the thirty five hundred four thousand mark we should get in that business manager that the night testing I don't want to hurt anybody who might have come of it so I don't attack woman CDC comes I answer that we twenty twenty million people probably have this I mean I could do a test if.

Kingpins Daily: Jhon Jairo Velasquez

"Today's quote is from Hitman. John Jairo Popeye Velazquez of the medicine drug cartel the less was Pablo Escobar's right hand. Man throughout the s until his arrest in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine upon his release. Velazquez started a new life. Leveraging his notoriety into a Popular Channel Book Deals and film roles in the two thousand seventeen interview. Velazquez defended his past life as a criminal saying with the politicians. We have in Columbia. Being abandoned is an honor. Velazquez delivered this incisive quote. Only a few years ago but the government corruption. He alludes to has a very long history one that is deeply entwined with the rise of the cartels in the Mid Nineteen Ninety s Columbia's then presidential candidate a Nesto. Some pair was accused of accepting six million dollars from a drug cartel though. Some pet narrowly won election and survive to impeachment proceedings. These signaled the corruption had reached the very highest levels of the Colombian government. It didn't end there in the two thousand six para political scandal. Five congressmen were arrested for collaborating with a paramilitary group that was responsible for killing thousands of Colombians civilians and as recently as two thousand eleven. Thirteen members of Columbia's Tax Authority were arrested for embezzling millions of dollars from the country's taxpayers. Over the US. This level of rampant corruption has undermined public faith in the Colombian government and election process within this context. One can see how Velazquez mine ocoee that compared to these politicians being abandoned is an honor however it must be pointed out that Popeye Alaska's was much more than just a bandit. He was a ruthless and prolific assassin. Beliefs Kaz began working for notorious drug lord. Pablo Escobar at the tender age of seventeen before joining the cartel. He had tried out the navy where he got the nickname Popeye for his strength and prominent jaw but Velazquez quickly left the service in search of a more thrilling line of work becoming Pablo. Escobar's enforcer was much more in line. With what Young Velasquez was looking for. He took to the bloody work with. Gusto over the course of his criminal career Velazquez claim to have personally murdered more than three hundred people as well as participating in the killings of thousands more in the midst of escalating violence Velazquez masterminded the deployment of upwards of two hundred car bombs against rival druglords and government officials and in Nineteen eighty-nine ve Alaska's targeted a Colombian presidential candidate by planting a suitcase bomb on a plane. Which killed all one hundred seven people aboard as well as three more on the ground he later described this mass murderer as a work of art. Even rampant government corruption begins to Pale in comparison to the level of Violence Velazquez. Took pleasure in meeting out. Presumably Popeye would have happily continued on as a hitman indefinitely but his exploits eventually caught up with him. In nineteen eighty. Nine Velasquez was sentenced to thirty years in prison for drug terrorism and the murder of a Colombian presidential candidate. He only served twenty two years before his release in two thousand fourteen with prison behind him. Velazquez publicly renounced his old ways and embarked on a new career as a kind of pundit and public figure he launched a youtube channel called Popeye Arab Pentito or remorseful Popeye in which he held court on various political issues affecting Columbia. The channel quickly racked up more than one point two million subscribers and Alaska's parlayed the online popularity into to book deals and a movie about his life which he directed and starred in Popeye also gave private tours of medicine highlighting the sites of cartel escapades though. Velazquez claimed to repent for his sins often and loudly. There is some evidence to suggest that his apology tour was more about attention and notoriety ben contrition in some videos. Popeye posted. He visited the graves of people he murdered and described in vivid detail. Exactly how he killed them. Perhaps as a way to relive his glory days also Velazquez reacted poorly when people didn't accept his apology for example when the son of a man who died in that plane bombing refused to forgive him. Popeye called him a bad man with an evil heart ultimately. There's no way to know pies true motivations but whatever Velasquez was he could certainly turn of phrase for example. Popeye once said it is better to die of a bullet than of a disease in bed. Ironically in February twenty twenty Alaska's passed away at age fifty seven from stomach cancer. It seems death is the great

Christopher Lochhead on The Biggest Mistake Made in Marketing

"What's at the top of your list when you get up to face the day? Now what's taken up all your time as you get going. Where do you start well? It is surf season. So that's hugely important. You know so. There's always checking of the forecast and And seeing when and where and the tides and so forth. So the you know. That's always very important but I I think beyond that. Yeah My. It feels like both podcasts of of really Blown up in a very good way in the last three to six months or so so. That's super exciting. This episode we just dropped with the real. Da Narcos the two guys responsible. At least on the American side for partnering with the Colombians to Take Down Pablo. Escobar are incredible guys Steve Murphy and Heavier penna though the basis for the show narcos which is now. I think the number two or number three Netflix ever and so getting to meet those guys getting to hang out with them. And getting new record a special two part podcast series with was an absolute life. Thrill and just you know. There's podcasting thing is I I? It sounds Corny. But it's turned into this massive gift in my life. Get to have these incredible experiences that I wouldn't otherwise yeah well and then opens up because I think you said you've got two hours worth of stuff in the can with these guys so you're getting the whole story out of them. You get this fifteen minute puff piece you you get to dig in and the crazy things I mean. Those are the guys that actually did. They're putting their life on the line to make that come together and to get through. Wrap your mind around this. This is back in the late eighties early nineties. Escobar had a three hundred thousand dollar bounty on their heads and the heads of any agent open season on them. They're having to live that every day as part of their daily life Murph was there for three years and was there for six years and there was a point in time Escobar declared war on Columbia twice and almost a third time and there was a point in time where there were as many as thirty to fifty car bombings a day and so every time they opened the car door and it didn't blow up there like a meeting. Was that kind of situation. I mean he they were he was murdering police officers women and children. He blew up a bookstore full of women and children ahead of the school season one year. The numbers that he murdered are nobody knows for sure. But you know fifteen to fifty thousand people. I mean it's he was the world's first narcoterrorists in you know he was one of the most evil guys In history that's crazy and we'll have a link to that so you can get people can get straight to those shows to check those out to more on that but now and so. This is interesting because this plays into what we're talking about when we talk to you to books back talking about category design and how to put a market together. You are ranking on the dialogue podcast category. Which is actually something that you had. That was originally. What got you into the first podcast. So talk about that and where that came from and and how you've worked back into it it's been it's been amazing and here's the CIA. I've now been podcasting for three years. And how long has it been now for John? Remind me it's been like I don't know I think we're heading up on thirteen because two thousand five was the first stuff we address. Marketing over. Coffee didn't start till two thousand seven so that's only thirteen years. Yeah I knew you were over a decade but So that makes you one of the. Og's for sure old man gangster but you know it. So I got started much later than game of course and I think when I started there. Were six six hundred thousand podcasts. Something like that. I can't remember exactly but at the time what people were saying was. Hey look unless you're like a massive celebrity near incredibly well known which of course I am not or you're part of a major media company you know Fox or NPR or or you're an incredibly well funded startup in the podcast page. Wonder you're one of these types of outfits you can't make it so in other words the days of successful independent podcasters or over here and here. We sit three years in. I have two podcasts. That regularly chart the top two hundred overall. Today there are nine hundred thousand podcast and in the business category. We've hit number one here. Here's the hub. I love music and one of my favorite new artists. Is this Gal Lizardo? In the she was nominated for all these grammys and stuff this year and she's just incredibly creative and I think compelling and the songs are fun my wife got me into her and then you had this other young Gal Billy eyelash who won all the awards this year. And she's got all this great music and stuff and so whether you're liz O or Billy. Eyeless your whoever. Here's what they didn't do. They didn't sit there on. And say you know what? Paul McCartney's the greatest songwriter ever. He's sold more records than anybody will ever sell end so fuck it. I'M NOT GONNA be musician. I'm not gonNA write songs. I'm not gonNA perform because I can never compete with the with Paul McCartney. So there's no point he so when I hear this stupidity about Oh you know or nine hundred thousand podcasts. And it's about to go to a million and podcast is over and this and that I'm like well. They're still writing love songs right right. I think we're in the very beginning and I think the success that we've been able to have our team's been able to have. I'm incredibly proud of but I think it's important as it underscores the fact that a a no name with a great group of people can get together. And if you do something that you're committed to and you get your niece downright And we didn't get it right in the beginning. By the way we had to reese but my point is it's still possible. Of course it's still possible. I encourage anybody. Who's interested in podcasting to get into podcasting? If you got something important you want to contribute something of value on contribute or in the very early days and I think the future of podcasting is barely beginning a podcasting. This year might scratch a billion dollars in AD revenue. It's nothing it's mouse nuts. And it's way more compelling and radio and I think a lot of ways it's way more compelling than audio books and in some ways it's way more compelling than video and so I think we're in the very beginning I think there's been incredibly exciting new podcast that have come out. We can talk about if you like. But I think podcasting as a medium for creative people for entrepreneurs for for anybody who really wants to do something cool is wide open and I think for marketers and looking. I'm biased but listen. I'm a three time. Cmo I think I get to say this. I think you're nuts for not sponsoring podcast for not getting into podcasting and for not exploiting this exciting dynamic high growth super cool super creative New Medium.

Pablo Escobar's Hippos Could Endanger Colombian Ecology

"Around one hundred and fifteen miles east of medicine in Colombia since the enormous Hacienda built by the drug Lord Pablo Escobar. Who had his own personal zoo? Which included hippos when Escobar's empire fell most of the exotic animals were safely relocated except for the hippos who eventually escaped to eat right four from as you in the US to Columbia and they lived at his ranch and they've grown slowly but steadily Jonathan suren ecologists from the University of California in San Diego. The original population of four in nineteen eighty one is estimated to be at least eighty. Now Hippos have tremendous influence on their native ecosystems in Africa so sure and wanted to see how they might be affecting their new ecosystem in Columbia. Shouldn't surprise anybody hippos poop in the water South America Africa Hippos on both Continents Wallow in ponds and lakes where their droppings release a tremendous amount of nutrients into the water that imported materials stimulates photosynthesis of algae and aquatic plants and also microbial battery production of bacteria. That are living off your Ganic matter. That's imported have mass. The hippos can cause ecological trouble if there is too much photosynthesis occurring in the water becomes full of oxygen during the daytime but at night when the sun goes down and the plants and algae stop releasing oxygen into the water a phenomenon called eutrophication occurs all the creatures that consume oxygen keep consuming it and the overall amount of oxygen dissolved in the water becomes critically low dropping. Low enough you can help. All the fish SORTA croaking going belly up. The researchers also say the situation provides a unique glimpse into the way that massive mammals like mammoths and mastodons. Long extinct in the new world may have influenced their habitats prior to their extinction but they also know that unless we can somehow curtail their population growth. The hippo population could explode in the next couple decades at which point they will disrupt larger and wild river systems. The study is in the Journal. Ecology lethal control isn't the popular management strategy among people who love hippos or see them as valuable tourism attraction but the question is when not if the hippos become detrimental to Colombian ecology which means that folks should be thinking about the best way to solve the problem now when there are fewer than a hundred hippos to manage and not thousands.

If Pablo was running his own operation he would be able to call. shots without directly handling illegal goods more power and money less risk he'd made enough money working for Rafael that he could other people to do the dirty work so he invested in an emerging market cocaine in nineteen seventy the United States government undesignated cocaine a controlled substance the new government rules made cocaine riskier to produce and distribute the higher risk meant the price ace skyrocketed for Pablo a single truck load of cocaine could make him as much money as an entire convoy of trucks full

is a mixture of pulverized coca leaves and other chemicals including kerosene sulfuric acid and sodium bicarbonate combined these substances form the active ingredient in white powder cocaine deep in the Peruvian jungle the cockroach introduced Pablo and Gustavo into their coca paste supplier further I order Pablo and Gustavo negotiated a price of sixty dollars per kilo the only had a small compartment in the front right fender of their yellow Renault four to smuggle the paced back to medicine so they only purchased a few kilos wants the coca paste was safely stowed Pablo Gustavo headed for the Ecuadorian border but a few miles before the border crossing they pulled over they drove into the jungle up ahead partially obscured in the jungle foliage was an identical yellow Renault for

and remodeled it to suit his specific illegal needs the entire first floor had been transformed armed into a single giant industrial lab space to cook the coca paste into cocaine the second floor served as a live in apartment for the Workers who Pablo referred to as the cooks Pablo had the kitchen outfitted with several old refrigerators re purposed as ovens so the hokey paste could be cooked in large batches according to Pablo's brother Roberto the several step chemical process of transforming the paste into powdered cocoa cain quote is no more difficult than baking a cake all the windows in the house were covered to avoid alerting the neighbors but there's nothing Pablo could do about the intense chemical smell that wafted from the house even though Pablo was only making his first batch of cocaine he could already see that this house wasn't sustainable long term he was already thinking bigger once Pablo's first batch of cocaine was synthesis is he had to get it to the United States Pablo organized a system of trucks to transport the drugs from the laboratory and Belan to the airport at the airport workers would package the cocaine and label it with brand names of Pablo's choice usually gems like emerald and diamond and once the cocaine was packaged it was packed inside scrapped airplane tires each tire could hold twenty two four forty kilos the tires were loaded inside a small single propeller airplane a Piper Cub Pablo had gotten the plane stripped down so that the interior was basically just a pilot seat and console he also added an extra compartment for additional fuel the setup maximum is the load the plane could carry without having to stop to refuel a single pilot would fly the plane all the way to Miami at a low altitude loyd radar detection after landing the tires would be offloaded and taken to a dump unknown to the garbage truck driver a Miami the employees of Pablo's would follow the truck to the dump collect the tires and bringing

They were dumb eighteen year olds who signed up to a thing because they didn't seem like they had another option.

Thank Pablo Escobar. No, no, no, no, they're not. They're not hero figures really. To me, they're, you know, they did what they thought they could do to move their families and themselves and their people ahead it's much more than I've seen any American politician do more than I've seen what I see a movie on or TV series on Pablo. It's always the guys, you know, that's that's the millionaire. Obviously the family's doing well too. But the wife is just yelling to get out of the business.

Why are you wearing sandals and socks stage right now? And I saw a guy go onstage with a backpack on. Oh yeah, yeah. What what are we doing? I don't know. That's what I'm saying. There's no, they think, and here's the thing that they think there's something honorable to being like. It's my words that matter Sophie, through my words, it was like, well, okay, but nobody's gonna put you on TV so figured out how to get somewhere to the middle of that would be a great podcast. You going over submissions. Oh, my. Jamie flam. Yeah, yes. So he had a podcast right before dynasty typewriter open that he completely abandoned because he started venue and you know, he's one of those too many projects guys. I recorded a podcast with him. They was entirely about tapes like it was just about what makes it good tape in a bad tape where my worst horror stories are he never released. He just went, moved onto opening. Do you write him? Say, one of us has to get better. You're dead worked for Pablo Escobar my God. Yes. How great is that? Exciting. If you watch the show narcos you ever see that. Are you like ready know who? Well, so I started watching it with my mom and we watch three episodes and just we could not stop laughing at ho- bed. It was really. Yeah. No, it's really, really bad. What's bad about it's so bad in so many ways, Keith. Yeah. I know I know fucking meat for white people to love it. It's fucking terrible. It's true. It's okay. Is it because everything so simplified, let's with the number one film. Well, okay. I guess maybe I don't. I didn't follow the storyline line if bail them third episode. So I have no idea where they went with it. Okay. But the first thing was the fact that they recorded it in Spanish and put vitals that is some fucking manipulate white people. Shit. All right. Because what they were doing was playing for us into city being like we're gonna show you the authentic story in the language that it actually have accepted. None of the fucking actors Colombian. Okay. The guy that plane Pablo Escobar is Brazilian. Do you know what language Brazilian speak Portuguese. Okay. So now we got Brazilian mangle in Spanish, and I'm listening to this and it's like what? The who is this dude, the head Mexican. Cartel guy is very firm, famous, Puerto Rican actor, forget his name because I'm good with names, but he is from New York. He's like a Puerto Rican with a New York, and he doesn't speak Spanish. Literally, none of the actors had a Colombian accent until two two in when they get stopped by some cops at a roadblock. And then all the fucking cops had Colombian. It's like the first time that I'm hearing my comforting, you know, home accent and it's the cups. I felt so dirty is like, what the fuck. So if they actually were trying to make something authentic, they would have given a fuck about how it sounds to me. Imagine, I know you'll get imagine if you watch a movie about the civil war and all of the southern soldiers have an Australian accent and an English accent like, yeah, but they're speak English, so it's fine. Right. What the fucking talking about this horrible. Then there's just factual inaccuracies. There's just. Like all this stuff about his mom. Again, I only saw the first three about mom? Yeah. Yeah, because his mom was actually like middle class as close as you can get to middle class in Columbia, and she was very against everything that he did, and she didn't take money from him. And so I remember that there was a whole part of the beginning about how she would hide his money in her house under her couch cushions or something. And my mom was like that bitch hated him. What? Yeah. So we just couldn't handle it and it's not, you know, it's not interesting. It's glorified. Soprano shit for white people enjoy. Was there any accuracy? I didn't see it, but is there any accuracy? No, not all. Marcos. Never heard any of that story. Now, what is your, what did your dad do for Pablo. Well, I told the whole story on our Asia fears podcast. If anybody's interested in trying to be like trying to move on with well, not move on..

Doesn't make any sense, it's very schizophrenic on one, hand applaud it which is the actual implementation of the policy on. The other hand I abhor. It when, he says his is not a. Killer I know, for fact that Putin is a killer and. So you actually compare him to Pablo Escobar Yeah he's he's he's, an organized criminal on massive proportions the only difference between Putin. And Escobar is that, Putin has got nuclear weapons. He's a gangster a mafia gangster with nuclear weapons So, what do you. What, do, you hope pin come out of this what. Are you what what is there anything that the US they could happen today. That you would say okay well that was okay Well Trump gets tough on tudent and says that you know you should withdraw. From Ukraine you should you should not bomb many said women and children in Syria that you will be eviscerated if you get involved in. Any kind of political meddling, in the United States or allied countries if you continue to assassinating. People. Using chemical weapons, in our allied countries and we're gonna come down? On you like? A? Ton of bricks if he doesn't say that then then all this stuff is just, completely. Empowering, Putin to do I don't see any of that happening, I see maybe Syria I think he would like to wrap up. Syria but I don't think, he cares about Ukraine unfortunately he was just over in England but That was a little, dicey and I can't imagine him saying that. NATO, is going to get tough on, him If you know if he doesn't stop killing people in in NATO countries but? Do you I mean do you see. What I see is that that there's effectively no upside to the summit it shouldn't. Have happened as only downside I'm waiting with baited breath to see what the any public announcements are. To see you, know to to see how much damage is done and what how the damage can be mitigated it's just it's it's dealing with bladder Putin is like dealing with the mafia. Gangster and and that's not, the the. Tone. That this summit has been approached so far by? By President Trump how does how does Russia's but Putin's Russia and do you think Well Putin is going to see in place for as long as you can there's there's. Not gonna be it's not, gonna retire. To. The Putin presidential library Inches now that's. Not gonna happen what he he has to stay, in place because all this money will be taken away you'll probably. Go to jail, and could even worse things happened in that he's no longer in power and so. He's going to in power until the very bitter end and, you know I I say that the the best comparable is what I call the Mugabe's scenario Mugabe was the president of Zimbabwe for for like thirty years and he. Just stayed and stayed, in state and create created more and more nationalism and more and. More of a best until the currency became worthless kind of us and and and that's. That's Putin's, only only play here and that's what he's, gonna do and the worst the economy gets the more angry and nationalistic guests in the more trouble he's gonna, call him for the rest of the. World and this is a absolute. Villainous, character that needs to be contained and anybody who knows him including some. Very, very good people in. The Trump administration totally agree with me on this Bill I. I wish, you the, best and I pray for you and your and your family that. You stay safe I don't know how I don't know how or why you would travel. Over to, Europe leave the safety of the United States, but we wish you all the best and thanks for being on the program and thank you for being brave, enough to stand up I mean was. There wizar- are you married Bill I am, I don't mind? Talking about my family I just I just wanted to know did you was there ever a time that, you? And your wife or that you just thought. Man I, don't know if I can do this I mean you put up the stakes are..
