Funzing is incredibly excited to announce that Shaun Attwood is returning to talk about being banged up abroad in one of America’s most dangerous prisons.
Shaun went from recreational drug user and stock-market millionaire to becoming an Ecstasy kingpin in America. He got caught and was sent to maximum security prison in Arizona. His story has been broadcast worldwide on the National Geographic program “Banged Up Abroad”. His trailer is here.
In this amazing talk, Shaun is going to tell you what it was like making millions of dollars and reaching God like status throwing raves and selling Ecstasy, to ending up in one of America’s most dangerous prisons, where gang members and even guards were murdering inmates.
“Shaun’s story is the Manchester rave scene meets The Wolf of Wall Street and ends in The Shawshank Redemption” — Jon Ronson author of The Psychopath Test
