On this episode we talk about one of the most dramatically interconnected men in conspiracy lore; a man who had more fingers in more pies than Mr Kipling and who was responsible for more rock than Dwayne Johnson. The king of cocaine and the reason anyone had something to toot throughout the 70s and 80s in America; this episode we are talking about Barry Seal.
You may have heard of Barry from the 2017 Tom Cruise movie 'American Made'; but he is much more than some haphazard drug mule that was coopted by the CIA for nefarious black ops; he was a tour de force as an aviator and, so it transpired, as an international arms and drugs dealer. He dealt with the top tier of both sides from Pablo Escobar to George HW Bush and operated at a level where Presidents and State Governors knew him by name (and even got him off a few crimes now and then)
His ultimately death is still a mystery; like, we know who shot him but the real question is WHY? Barry was so deep into so many dark corners of what we now call the Deep State operations and was a cash cow with the cocaine and arms dealing that he probably has a dossier as tall as the twin towers on all the movers and shakers behind the scenes.
In this episode we talk about all this and more with comedians Gerry McBride and Damian Clark. You know Gerry from the episode on Chris Benoit and Damian joined my for the Port Arthur Massacre episode. Laughs and facts all through this one and there are loads more to come!
