It was a tremendously different interview, and when we went down to visit him in.

So Hanoch help me understand what happened to incest. Well, it's a long story, but this isn't a big Pharma Company. Might that this small company in Arizona and they make this tiny, really powerful Fenton spray. Really interests me about them. Is the actually they you know they get this drug approved in two thousand twelve, which is a really long time into the OPIOID crisis, right? Officially crisis began in the late ninety s so they get. It approved despite a lot of knowledge about event. How damaging opioids being in the US and how they all being over prescribed MIS marketed? But. They managed to get it, but then when they get it on the Muck, the sales had just doing very well and Kapoor wants his investment back. He's very frustrated and so he ends up turning to Burlakov with according to bellicose a fairly. Explicit understanding that you know he was being hired to bribe people in with that in mind Tom. Can you tell me about John Kapoor? The CEO of Insys an also you know how he relates to Alec Burlakov. What's their relationship like? Schorr, John Kapoor is originally from a small Indian city in north India. He's now in his seventies He came to the United States to go to college in in the nineteen sixties at the University of Buffalo. He got a graduate degree in suitable sciences.

And it was one of more than a dozen companies that ended up. He ended up starting or investing in and over the next twenty twenty five years he he really developed this amazing reputation for developing what's called Specialty Pharma drug which are focused drugs on one particular kind of ailment, and they usually have a high amount of revenue. And then he had a little twist to it, and that twist would be a marketing gimmick almost, but it would be affected. It'd be real science, but it still separate his products from anything else. That was out there on the market and one of the things that you developed was a spray. It's like a spray version of a drug. So the starts out with a heart drug, and then it was very successful for and China, and then he got the idea after his wife, who had metastatic breast cancer apparently died very difficult death. He was motivated to help her by developing a painkilling drug, and he gravitated towards spent knowing turned into spray. And, then he came to market with that vow was the basis of incest insys, therapeutics, and the drug was called subsidies. so that's that's like foundation. That's the origin story of incest and this drug substance where Alec Burlakov comes in is after the launch of subsists in two thousand twelve, when it doesn't meet expectations I'm coming in there. People are getting fired left to right the. Why are they getting fired? My basic understanding is lack of sales results, so they're not making the money that. Kapoor wants them to make correct. They're hurting real bad. They're on a fast track to go and under, and he says I want my money back and I want at least a two to one return on my investment.

So what they did is they use this system speaker's fees. Speaker programs are supposed to be a way of doctors finding out about new drugs and treatments for their patience and so pharmaceutical companies.

But what insisted just crossed every in the book, so the brew it very clearly into illegality because they asked was, they said we pay a little money, and sometimes we don't even hold the events, and we expect you therefore to prescribe more. They even had this spreadsheet. And whether you know which the prosecutors could a smoking gun where they'd put on the return on investment, you know this is how much we paid in fees. This is how much getting out in prescriptions and it is dramatically successful. The speaker program just has a huge consequence for insects, and it goes through the roof. Substance Sales.

Guy had no idea the feds Tauron to him and just how much they had traced back to him. The good news of this story is that some vendors have been rooted out and stopped. This is seriously messed up drug. That has no business in any drug dealers hands. I know I've mentioned Fitna a few times in this episode but I'm not sure you fully understand. The Dangers. Offers of it. Footnote was first prescribed by doctors. Specifically if you're suffering from some extreme pain due to cancer and there's no other opioids that are actually working on you. The doctor might prescribe you a patch or lollipop but this is a potent drug the smallest pinch of Sentinel is lethal to give you a better idea. A typical all single pill of ibuprofen is two hundred. Milligrams a lethal dose of one milligram. so that one tablet is two hundred times a lethal dose. It was phenomenal in. Yes people are dying from overdosing on prescription opioid based drugs. And if they can't find knows they'll find heroin and possibly overdose on that right but fitna is in a whole nother league because it's so potent. It's so easy to die from which has killed over ninety five thousand people in the last five years which is about sixty percent of all opioid debts. I mean just listen to what happened in this small town in West Virginia Huntington once a arriving industrial hub had been crippled by years of job loss rising crime and sixteen hundred overdoses the previous year. The calls started coming in at three twenty one on a warm August afternoon. It just four hours twenty. Six people had overdosed on a batch of feno laced heroin. Why dysfunctional all of a sudden the leading cause of OPIOID deaths? One big reason is because it's synthetically made anyone can just order a bunch of it from China and get it shipped to you and from there you can try your a hand and making heroin leased Feno for much much cheaper which results in a lot of money for drug dealers but can I switch gears here and just rant for a second when young people are making huge bank off the sale of Feno. And I'm mad about it because they're doing it recklessly the US government has tried to make policies policies to make sure doctors only prescribed sentinel to patients who really need it to patients who have pain so severe. That no other opioids work anymore but the group that controls this regulation regulation is mckesson one of the largest drug distributors and they didn't control the distribution of fennel very well they made it easy for doctors to prescribe and this mismanaged program resulted in major manufacturers like Johnson and Johnson and Cecil on to go nuts encouraging doctors to prescribe bribe Feno. These companies made hundreds of millions of dollars from that single drug which resulted in many deaths and addictions and deaths from addictions. And things got so bad that both cephlon and Johnson and Johnson were investigated by the US government and find massive amounts. Johnson and Johnson faced a multi billion dollar lawsuit it for misrepresenting. The dangers of opioids to doctors and CEPHLON was hit with a two hundred and fifty million dollar lawsuit trying to turn into a routine pain management drug. These are the legal filmmakers and pushers making huge amounts of money from these drugs in reckless ways and illegal ways but in my opinion the worst of these drugmakers makers was insists. Listen to this clip from NBC News. That explains the trouble. They got into drug company executive and found guilty in a bribery case involving the OPIOID Buick. Sentinel the multi billionaire founder of insys therapeutics and four other top executives convicted of racketeering prosecutors. Say Their scheme involved Paul bribes kickbacks even left dances for physicians who prescribed large amounts of the company's federal spray to patients. Who did not need it? You see this this.

Now Sylvia's an interesting case in point because she's actually prepared to use her sexuality to get advantage, and she does it in the elevator signing up to two Vincent. So are women as sort of guilty as men in this instance? Yes. Lovie is he's playing the game and she uses her sexuality, and she also is among probably of all of them. The one who kind of suppresses Sarah. She sees her as a threat and you know there, there are some women in some corporate environments who do that to women as February of research on that will soon be has the opportunity to support Sarah but doesn't go through with it.

So you know, you'll you it's very fleeting and you're asked to give a lot of loyalty to the company, but the company doesn't give loyalty back to you and your job can be made redundant that a turn of the hat. You know, you contracts only for as long as necessary. The other thing here then is you so quite soon, sue and the art of war. The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting, and this is what actually happens inside the elevator. Somebody is getting a form of revenge on the others, and it's so easy for these. This sort of attitude to be turned back on the people themselves, putting them in a concentrated environment. What are you saying about human nature and people generally? Well, certainly in this book, I think Justice was poetic that I'm yes, they the fact that they are in an elevator brings out the worst in them and they went very nice people when they got into the elevator and we actually find out because by the time we get to the end of the elevators sigma almost to the end, we find out who has committed the murders, the reasons they've committed the
