362 – Tony Perrottet (Cuba Libre)

By January 28, 2019September 14th, 2019One Comment

Tony is an old friend of mine and the author of several books of sexy history: Napoleon’s Penis, The Naked Olympics, and most recently, Cuba Libre — a book that reads like an adventure novel, but is the juicy true story of the Cuban revolution. If you have any interest in Cuban history, political revolution, or hot Latin sex, you’ll dig this conversation and Tony’s book. If you don’t, what the hell is wrong with you?

  • Great conversation. Maybe you’ll find this interesting: The CIA’s ideas to get rid of Castro were so outlandish, they not only thought of spiking his cigars so he would lose his beard and poisoning his scuba diving suit, but they even considered using a nuclear submarine to project a hologram of Jesus Christ onto the clouds, which coupled with powerful loudspeakers would deliver an apocalyptic message on the terrified (and largely Catholic) population, coaxing them to rebel against Castro’s "diabolical" rule.

    Maybe some day I will take you and Peter to Café La Habana here in Mexico city, where Fidel and Ché used to hang out and plan their little revolution 🙂
