SUMMARY

If you’ve seen the incredible 2001 film Blow starring Johnny Depp, then you’re already familiar with Bobby’s guest this week—the man the movie was based on, “Boston” George Jung. Perhaps the biggest and most infamous drug smuggler of of the 1970s and 80s, Jung was part of Pablo Escobar’s Medellin narco cartel that was responsible for importing over 85% of the cocaine in the country and lived a life of excitement and riches scarcely imaginable to the average person. But before he rose to the level of international “coke star,” Boston George was just a young pot smoker looking to make a buck. Now, after two decades, he is out of prison and telling his story without all of the Hollywood hooplah.
