Undercover with the DEA in Mexico
Manage episode 357575565 series 1146660
This month’s guest is Michael S. Vigil, a former undercover DEA agent in Mexico, who rose to be Chief of International Operations worldwide.
One of his favorite accolades is a narcocorrido tribute from a famous Mexican musician, Alberto Angel, the ballad elevating his fame to rival those of the international drug lords he pursued. But why choose to be an undercover agent and what is it like living on the knife’s edge of danger? Host Stephen Spitz will explore this along with the escalating violence of the Mexican Cartels, and what can be done to stop them?
