Get your Penn and Paper for El Chapo

Actor Sean Penn with the help of Mexican actress, Kate del Castillo, interviewed the most powerful drug trafficker in the world, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who was a fugitive at the time of the interview.

We are joined by Professor Peter Fray, a professor of journalism practice at UTS.
