All culminating in the drive by murder of the business tycoon.

    Beautiful sunsets, fresh seafood, and a social scene that revolves around the ocean may be the first things you imagine when you thinks of the Florida Keys, but behind that picture postcard lays a seedy criminal underbelly. As a maritime smuggling route to the mainland, it's not uncommon for bails of drugs to wash up on shore and theres always an enterprising local ready to peddle the illegal find for some fast cash. But in the illegal drug trade, disagreements between business partners don’t get settled in courtrooms- they get sorted out with vicious street justice.

Very interesting, too many commercials

I started listening to this before my trip to Miami, bc apparently I like scaring myself. It’s so good! But WAY too many ads. I counted like 5 in one commercial break recently. No thank you. It’s the only podcast where I actively skip over ads.

SoFla nostalgia

As someone who grew up in South Florida it was interesting to learn the details of stories that were on the news.
Good work guys!
You can always skip ads.

Loved it

I’m from Miami, but no longer live there. Listening to the Podcast brought me back to the area and made connections of stories I had heard growing up. It was great, sad that there’s no more episodes.
