108. Viva La Mexico

May 5, 2023 Hola! In unbeknownst celebration of Cinco De Mayo today I'm going to talk about Mexico. First I recap what it was like riding my motorcycle from northern Nevada to Mexico. Next I talk about my experience in Mexico, some of the things I saw and places I went. Then we get into the nitty gritty of the drug wars in Mexico. I try to examine how the country became so violent, America's influence in the drug trade, human trafficking, drug trafficking, the CIA, Fast and Furious, Santa Muerte, mass graves, police corruption, political corruption, Mexican culture, the war in Ukraine, China's influence in Mexico, fentanyl, the drug crisis in America and how it relates to China and Mexico and much much more! Thanks for listening. Please support if you find value in what I do.
