#120 - Rusty Young On Colombiano, The Wild Lands & The War On Drugs

Rusty Young is an Australian-born writer known for his book, Marching Powder. Rusty was also recruited as a Program Director of the US government's Anti-Kidnapping Program in Colombia.

Rusty comes on and he talks about his new book, Colombiano. Doc gets into specifics and asks about what genre it would fall under, after which Rusty goes into more details of his book such as with child soldiers, a female’s perspective on things, and his research and stay in Colombia.

The boys lighten up the mood a bit by discussing their possible pornstar names right before throwing it back to Rusty’s work with the US government. A lot more interesting topics come up such as the experience of being in a war-torn country, Western culture, and even about the war on drugs and legalization.

Definitely a stellar podcast for all of you to tune in to. Lots of great points and stuff to take away. Give us a listen because we’re sure you guys will enjoy this one!
