Insight with Ioan Grillo – Gangster Warlords: Drug Dollars, Killing Fields, and the New Politics of Latin America

While the head of the Sinaloa drug cartel, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán, seems to have captured the attention of Hollywood – meeting with actor Sean Penn before his recent recapture – there is a brutal reality to the war on drugs that we don’t see in the Hollywood interpretation. Ioan Grillo, author of the critically acclaimed El Narco who has covered Latin America since 2001, will be joining us to share what he has discovered – a disturbing new understanding of a war that has spiralled out of control and urgently needs to be confronted.
