President Trump has ordered the Pentagon not to remove Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher from the Navy SEALs. Gallagher was at the center of a high-profile war crimes case where he was convicted of posing for photographs with the body of a teenage ISIS captive. Navy Secretary Richard Spencer also resigned over the issue because he reportedly proposed a private compromise with the White House that would have let Gallagher retire despite the outcome of an upcoming peer-review process. Wesley Morgan, military affairs reporter for Politico, joins us for all the details. Next, we will tell you about El Mencho, the most powerful drug kingpin you’ve never heard of. Now that El Chapo is behind bars for good, authorities have turned their attention to the leader of the CJNG cartel which has 5,000 members spread across every continent except Antarctica. Reports say the cartel uses ruthless tactics including acid baths, decapitations, and even cannibalism. Beth Warren, investigative reporter for the Louisville Courier Journal, joins us for more on drug kingpin, El Mencho.

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.
