If you were a fan of the Breaking Bad TV series, get ready to listen to the real version in Texas.
The TV series featured a fictional high school chemistry teacher named Walter White diagnosed with a deadly brain tumor who manufactures high-grade meth in order to put away cash for his family’s future.
It is not far from the truth.
During the 1980s, Central and East Texas were dotted with illicit meth labs set up in remote farmhouses.
