After she was caught trying to smuggle 5.8kg of cocaine out of Colombia in 2017, the media nicknamed her ‘Cocaine Cassie’. But Cassie Sainsbury’s life in a tough Colombian prison was so much more complicated. And interesting.

In this episode, she speaks to Mia Freedman about prison life: the abuse, the relationships, the sex. And what happened afterwards. 


Cassie Sainsbury has launched an online fitness programme, inspired by her time in Bogota. You can access here.
