The tall-but-true tale of a charismatic outlaw, an iconic small-town sheriff, and the record-setting drug bust that ensnared them both. Set in the rugged Texas borderlands, host Rob  D’Amico transports listeners back to the U.S. side of the border for the opening salvo of the War on Drugs … where so much dirty money was swirling across the Rio Grande that even the most incorruptible citizens would be tempted. In the tradition of films like No Country for Old Men and Charles Portis novels, Witnessed: Borderlands mashes up the shockingly real and the deeply surreal, chronicling not just the events  of a crime, but digging deep into the mystery and aura of one of  America’s most myth-soaked regions.

Once called “the miracle on the beach,”  Synanon began in the 1960s as an experimental rehab facility in Santa  Monica, California with a radical  claim: It could cure heroin addiction. Before long, it would make an  even bolder claim: It could cure any of your problems. All you had to do  was move in. What started in a house on the beach, soon spread to  compounds across the country. The man who made the  miracle happen, Charles E. Dederich, aka “Chuck,” would be the one to  destroy it all, along with the lives of many of his followers and  millions of dollars in assets. The Sunshine Place tells the  mind-blowing, true-story of Synanon - one of America’s most  cutting edge social experiments, turned into one of its most dangerous  and violent cults - as it’s never been told before: by the people who  lived it. Executive Produced by Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey, and  Emily Barclay Ford for Team Downey and C13Originals,  together with Josh McLaughlin for Wink Pictures and written, produced,  and directed by Peabody-nominated C13Originals, a Cadence13 Studio.

really disturbing that Feds wished the sheriff had lied and presented that it was a rogue sting operation rather than be thrown in jail for the crime he committed or that they didn't follow the money to figure out how he was able to afford all the property he owned to show he had been doing this for a while.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This podcast was so well told! It was just like being there with the people in that part of TX in those days! I was completely absorbed into the story! I do not believe for a second that it was that only time for "el Puerto"! It seemed like too much of a level of comfort IMHO. While they did break the law I am so glad it ended the way it did. Changes in sentencing was a blessing for people that while they did do bad things, they did not deserve that many min/man years in prison. What a waste of money on us taxpayers! Excellent podcast team! I look forward for more!

I loved this story and the story teller. I could see the desert, the dusty small towns, the wild country, the big sky. The best element of this story, and many like it, is the human one. How the people lived this story; how they felt about these towns, their environment, themselves, and the characters who changed it all. Thanks!
