Ep. 13 Straight A’s in College to Drug-Running for the Cartel, Addiction, Prison, and the Road to Recovery with Megan Racer
Peter “Chappy” Meyerhoff sits down with Megan Racer. As Megan tells her story, she paints a picture of a girl, barely an adult, who relied on others—particularly the men she dated—for validation and a sense of identity. She entered relationships for the type of lifestyle they could afford her, not for the love she could share with her partner.
Finally unable to keep up appearances, Megan quit her job and, with no options left, jumped on an opportunity offered by her dope dealer, which involved her driving to and from Mexico to do odd jobs for the cartel—with her two kids in the backseat on each and every single trip.
It was a short-lived gig. Megan was finally arrested at the border with 89 pounds of methamphetamine in the back of her truck, and she was separated from her children. She was able to sign a plea and took a lesser charge of distribution.
Megan spent 14 months in prison—living out those months on the same grounds she toured when she was in college—and spent the next year in a drug program, where she was completely determined to change for the better.
Today, Megan works in recovery, and she loves every second of it. Megan closes the conversation this way:
