CNN Audio expands podcast portfolio with ‘El Chapo: Two Faces of a Capo’

MIAMI, FL – July 15, 2020 – (LATINX NEWSWIRE) - CNN Audio expands CNN en Español’s podcast portfolio with the launch of "El Chapo: Two Faces of a Capo." Narrated by journalist and CNN en Español anchor Fernando del Rincón, the six-episode podcast series follows the trial of Joaquin Guzman Loera, publicly known by his drug cartel alias “El Chapo,” and his reputation as a ruthless drug trafficker.

The podcast, which is released during the week of the first anniversary of El Chapo's sentence, highlights new evidence and dramatic testimony through secretly recorded audio conversations, as well as through text messages and letters, that allowed the jury and the public to get an inside view of how El Chapo managed the inner workings of the Sinaloa Cartel. Audiences learn about the shocking details that came to light during his New York trial, his violent and unscrupulous methods, as well as other sides that, until now, have remained hidden.

All episodes are now available to listen at http://www.cnn.com/elchapo, across mobile devices via CNN’s apps for iOS and Android, and on all major podcast platforms.

  1. "Corruption and death, bricks of a company"
