My Guest today is:Brian O'Dea
By the early 1980s, he was operating a $100 million a year 120-man business, and had developed a terrifying cocaine  addiction. Under increasing threat from the DEA in 1986, he quit  the trade–and the drugs–and began working with recovering addicts in Santa Barbara. Despite his life change, the authorities caught up with him years later and Brian was arrested, tried, and sentenced to ten years at Terminal Island Federal Penitentiary in Los Angeles Harbor. A born storyteller,  Brian O’Dea candidly recounts his incredible experiences in the streets of Bogotá with a false-bottom suitcase lined with cocaine, to the engine compartment of an old DC-6 whose engines  were failing over the Pacific, to the cell blocks overcrowded with small-time dealers who had fallen victim to the justice system’s perverse bureaucracy of drug sentencing. Weaving  together extracts from his prison diary with the vivid recounting of his outlaw years and the dawning recognition of those things in his life that were worth living for, High tells  the remarkable story of a remarkable man in the late-1980s drug business
Every American needs to understand that the entire national press is controlled, and is simply giving you the "news" you are supposed to have.  Very soon, all alternative sources of news, including this website, will be shut down.  That time draws ever closer.
