Surviving El Chapo: The Twins Who Brought Down A Drug Lord


Season 2 coming soon!

Speaking publicly for the first time ever, Chicago-born identical twins Jay and Peter Flores share the incredible story of how they went from dealing $2 billion worth of drugs across the country as North America’s most successful cocaine traffickers, to government informants who brought down the infamous drug lord, “El Chapo.”

Forever taunted by the gnawing question of “Did we do the right thing?” the brothers’ decision has cost them permanent exile from each other, their father’s life, 14 years in prison, and a life sentence of always looking over their shoulder, waiting for their enemies to take revenge. Was it all worth it?

Hosted and executive produced by award-winning artist and producer Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson and broadcaster and journalist Charlie Webster. Brought to you by Lionsgate Sound as a world exclusive with iHeartPodcasts.

    Great narration!
    Waiting for season 2!! I’ve listened twice! Love their story and hearing the other side of this!
  • cornbutter
    To get a glimpse, a perspective on what really happened and how they all lived their life before/after…you can’t phantom. My heart hurts for them. To change your life and to see that they wanted to live better and be a “family” in the middle of a drug war is astounding. Thank you for sharing this.

  • Juju0000000000000
    When does part 2 come out? I listen to season 1 like 5 times already it’s that good. Wish part 2 was out by now.
  • Def Squad
    Very Interesting and well thought
    Incredible story and the hosts were very good. I had a different view of these brothers until I heard this podcast. Now I have a very different perspective about the twins and their spouses.
  • Tinabp76
    Once I started this podcast, I could NOT stop listening! 50 and Charlie, bravo to you both on such a job well done! The twins tell their story in their own riveting way! I love the wives perspective as well! Everything about this story was just incredible. I can only imagine the life they live now, constantly looking over their shoulders. I just need to know when Season 2 will drop because I cannot wait!
  • Ayya Leticia
    Very well paced.
    Interesting and held my attention. Listened to all episodes in 2days!
  • Susan Adrianna
    I listened to the whole season in 2 days at work. LOVED it! Can’t wait for season 2.
  • Pretzi23
    When can we expect Season 2 ?
  • Chi.Chi.X0
    Soooo Good!!!
    Such a great podcast.. Start to finish! Can’t wait for season 2!
  • MeadowsTiger360
    Turned of their family
    Great story and really interesting, I know about the street life and it’s just crazy that they had all that respect from different cartels and had the cartel help them and was ready to go to war for them just for them to fold and turn on them because they didn’t want to pick and choose sides and didn’t want to deal with all the extra stuff that comes with that lifestyle. If your not ready to deal with all situations that come with that lifestyle etc… Do not get involved plain and simple, these guys just kept getting deeper and deeper and when they got in too deep they didn’t want to deal with it. I agree with the dad! Their decisions put a bullet on all their family name for life rather than to just keep their mouth shut and have their family/name good forever.
  • Whoshotcha11

    Liongsgate FIX THE AUDIO GLITCHES!!! Hands down BEST podcast I’ve ever heard
    This is the best podcast I’ve ever heard!! And I’ve listen to hundreds. BUT they need to fix the Audi glitches across their platform. Scamanda is having the same issues!!!!!!!!!!! Please it ruins the atmosphere they worked so hard to create during the story. One episode of SEC just ended!! Please address this!!
  • Derms96
    Great until the end
    The last episode was horrible they were crying during the entire episode and was very hard to getting into the story with all the sobbing other then the last episode it was a great show
  • CassieDollFace
    Hooked, but will there be a Season 2?
    Got super hooked and listened to it while at work. There’s some parts where the editing seems to repeat itself but I didn’t mind much considering it’s pretty great. BUT… will we ever get a season 2? Felt like I was left hanging off the edge of my seat. Definitely understandable if it was put on pause due to the current investigation/ on going case that the wives are facing…. The question still stands: will we get a Season 2 when it comes to a close?
  • imhimheisi

  • KimGoldmanfollower
    Too long of a delay
    Podcast kept me engaged, but then we were ghosted! What happened the the rest of the story!! This happened to come up as a reminder, but seems like a distant memory! Will you ever complete the story! Disappointed
  • monafea85
