In today’s episode of This Day in Miami History, we break format a bit to talk with Roben Farzad, the host of NPR’s “Full Disclosure” and author of “Hotel Scarface: Where Cocaine Cowboys Partied and Plotted to Control Miami.” Farzad joins us to talk about Michael Borkin and Charles Pfeiffer, who on June 23, 1980, climbed down the side of The Mutiny Hotel after setting the room on fire. This small moment offers the opportunity to look at a much wilder time in Miami’s history.
