Erik Aude:  Oh, these guys, these guards all started making crazy good money off of me because I needed things to help my time pass.
I wanted things to help my time pass. I needed books to learn the language. I needed law books so I can understand how to fight my case.
I wanted things like to make my time pass better. I wasn't dealing with drugs, women or alcohol. I was dealing with things that would make your time go by, but I was literally the first person to get a cell phone into that prison because there's no guarantee that you're going to get a reception.
The only time I was able to use a phone was up in the office and on the second story, standing on a box crate in the corner next to all these files and files and files to try and get reception that would keep dropping all the time.
We're in the middle of nowhere. This prison is surrounded by desert and so cell phone towers, it's hit or miss. A phone cost, bucks roughly over there.
So first I needed to get my money in. But I'm using that to win a deal, bribe people and start making my own stuff happen.
But also I took a gamble, I ordered a phone from the [Cantina] and I paid that guy a lot of money take a risk to get that phone in.
Phone gets in there, I can find a signal, but I can only find a signal at the top of this locker that I had brought over from B class that I can get on top of it.
And I would put the phone on like a little nail in the wall. So that was steady and then the cord would come there. So that Erik Aude:  Yeah.
So that I got a good signal in that one little spot that really helped me out though. So I can talk with my family and friends once a week.
But because I got that first cell phone in too, I could also do a lot of willing to deal in and out because the embassy wasn't bringing my money anymore.
I had to start hustling inside prison. I could rent that phone out, which I would run out all the time.
In case someone tries to rat me out though, I need to get another phone. I couldn't be bringing the phones in all the time because a [Cantina]  guy, if too many were coming in, he would get cold feet.
The hijackers were the Palestinian hijackers. These guys were responsible for 23 deaths back in on that US aircraft that they boarded in Karachi and they executed two people.
But the Pakistani command is boarded the plane and killed 21 other people in the crossfire. So they were convicted of two of the deaths.
But the Pakistani commandos were responsible for 21 other deaths. Erik Aude:  Very sloppy. But these guys had been in that prison since it opened up in Now when they were first there, they were under hour security.
Well, as time went by, they did a bunch of hunger strikes and they started to get little privileges, little by little. And over time by the time I get there, these guys are the most respected prisoners in the prison.
The guards had grown up with them. They were kids when they went there, but now the guards would have lunch, breakfast, and dinner with these guys.
They all had their own cells. They all were all left alone. They were celebrities in the prison, but they had the most privileges that they name and understand.
They just being left alone is considered a huge privilege. Having your own cell is considered a huge privilege, and anything they want for need, the guards would get without going out turning them in, without getting them in trouble, because the guard respected these guys and they'd grown up with them.
They eat with them all the time. Like if I dealt with the guards, the guards will fuck me over in a heartbeat, in a heartbeat. And I knew that.
So I took a stab with the hijackers. I met the hijackers through [IU] but just a random meeting.
It'd be cool. He thought it I was funny and that these guys are split to hate America. But these guys ended up becoming my best fucking friends in prison.
They end up becoming my brother's in prison. Now one of the hijackers, a guy named Ali, he wasn't actually on the plane.
He was the one who organized all the police uniform, the police van and all the weapons. And that's how he got caught. Because when they got arrested, they started ratting everyone out.
They mentioned his name. He stayed in the country because of a girl. Erik Aude:  And that had he left when it all happened, he would've gotten out in time.
But he stayed a couple of days because of a girl and that's how he got caught. Erik Aude:  Now Ali though, loved chess and love books, that man could read anything.
He was a speed reader, which kind of is not something you want to be in prison. You want something that's going to take your time. Do you have any books?
So they brought me like two huge boxes of just books, which I would end up devouring, and I would give them to Ali.
Do you have anything else? I've said read this Harry Potter book. You're going to fucking love it.
There's a Goblet of Fire. It's a huge book. You're going to like it. Just fucking read it. That's where I hid the cell phone.
Erik Aude:  Because it's so big. I was able to hide a cell phone in that book. Because of me, the hijackers were allowed to talk to their families for the first time in 17 years.
Erik Aude:  I got something from them that I absolutely needed. I got loyalty. I had loyalty and I needed their connections.
So those guys had my back for everything after that, because of me, they were able to speak to the family. It's the first time, 17 years now. I told the hijackers, now that they knew the phones would work, they all want to fill in as themselves.
Erik Aude:  So I said, use your connections. So they started bringing in phones for me. And so the guards didn't know I was getting them in.
They figured the hijackers are getting them. Erik Aude:  So the hijackers were my protection basically, but I was the one who was in charge of everything.
So yes, all the hijackers got the phones in, but I was selling them all over the prison because now everyone knew I was the guy to go to for cell phones, and that was how I was able to start making my money in prison.
I was able to use the money that my mom would send, but I was able to start making money and ends meet there.
So I was the guy who kept you for cell phones, for VCD players, for work. All the guards started working for me in that prison.
I was running poker tournaments. Jordan Harbinger:  You were running poker tournaments in prison. So you started playing poker in prison.
Erik Aude:  The first time I ever picked up a hand of poker was on death row. Erik Aude:  In Pakistan. Jordan Harbinger:  Right, yeah, just clarifying how weird this is that you're playing Texas Hold Em with Palestinian hijackers.
Erik Aude:  It is the Pakistani. So the Palestinians weren't on death row. The Palestinians were one cell. I was in -- eventually after I got moved off the death row, I got moved off the death row after nine and a half months to two cell.
By that time though, I had already become friends with Ali through the letter network through the books, because he wanted my books and my magazines, and then when I got moved to two cell, I could talk to these guys over the wall and our relationships struck more of a chord and I go over and eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner with them.
Maraud was my best friend on death row. He was a man that knew very little English but more English than anyone else.
And it was through him that I started learning Urdu a lot quicker. He would always correct me. He always answered my questions.
Just a friendly, friendly, friendly guy. And he taught me the game of Texas Hold 'Em Poker and it's because of what he taught me to this day that I still make a living playing.
We'll be right back. Jordan Harbinger:  This episode is sponsored in part by Calm. A new year brings an opportunity to reset, establish new habits for our happiest, healthiest selves, joining a gym, eating better.
You know the drill. But improving physical health isn't the only resolution to consider. We can resolve to improve our mental wellbeing too, and God knows I do that every year.
That's why we're excited to partner with Calm, which I've been using for a long time. I love this app.
It's the number one app to help you sleep. And trust me, it works for that. Meditate and relax. If you had to calm. And what I like about this is, it's not just like think of nothing, block everything out of your mind.
Don't think of anything at all. You want to focus, whatever. They've got stuff for that. There's also sleep stories, which are bedtime stories for adults and they're designed to help you relax before you doze off.
You can head to the lavender fields of France with Stephen Fry, which by the way is an awesome way to go to sleep, or explore New Zealand with Jerome Flynn from Game of Thrones.
Bob Ross is in there too. I mean this is, they know what they're doing when it comes to this. They're soothing music, breathing exercises, gentle stretches to relax your body and all that stuff.
Jason, tell them how to grab some calm and their lives. Give yourself the gift of Calm and a happy and healthy Jordan Harbinger:  This episode is sponsored in part by HotelTonight.

Boom, business trips, last minute ski trips is awesome. No long endless lists of a zillion hotel choices and they're really good about not having like divey crap holes in the app.
If you have a bad experience, let them know they do actually care. I've done that before where I'm like they shouldn't be in the app.
They'll take it out. They have short profiles of the hotel, they've got pictures of what the hotel actually looks like, not just like marketing stuff.

Erik Aude:  Yeah, he was in prison for killing his wife's family members, and then all of you, how in depth do you want me to go on that, but Jordan Harbinger:  If we can talk about that, I thought that was pretty interesting because at first you think this is a horrible person and then you realize that he I think he did what any man on this planet would do.
Him and his wife were in love and in Pakistan, that's the big, no, no. You need to -- it's all arranged marriages, who your families want you to be with.
It's not who you want to be with. Well, him, his wife fell in love on their own and they had to go into hiding to be together and while they were in hiding and their families refuting, it was Romeo and Juliet, and each family was accusing the other one of hiding the couple and they were killing each other.
They were just doing everything, demoralizing and humane to one another. What brought him out of hiding was his mother and sister were both kidnapped, gang raped and murdered by his wife's family members.
What happened to him. His whole situation is not isolated. It happens a lot in Pakistan, it's the way things are.
Maraud was just another dude to me, he was a good dude to me, and he was kind to me, and he would end up sharing his last meal with me and having it prepared, so that I'd enjoy it, not him.
And he didn't even tell me that it was his last meal. He had it prepared so nothing was spicy, and I hated spicy food, but he had it prepared so that I enjoyed it and he didn't even tell me.
And till this day, it's still the nicest thing anyone's ever done for me. And it was by a man named Maraud on death row. Erik Aude:  Yeah, no, he was, he was, he was.
I mean, I don't know how he didn't tell me. Jordan Harbinger:  He didn't want you to feel bad or be emotionally. He wanted to enjoy his last day on Earth with his friend.
Erik Aude:  We were just boys that day. We ate, we played chess, we played poker, we talked about life and when I said, I'll see you next week.
He says, inshallah. And I never saw him again. He was hung in the next morning. Jordan Harbinger:  Yeah.
Oh man. So while you're in prison, what's going on with Rai Gharizian back in fricking Glendale or whatever in your case.
What's going on with this guy who clearly set you up? What's happening with this guy? All mugshots. That's Rai Gharizian. But she continued on her itinerary to LAX.
They found in the walls of her suitcase professionally concealed also opium. So they set up this thing. They arrested both her and Rai Gharizian, except he posted bail under the name Razmik Minasian.
So when he posted bail, my mom's private investigator, my mom's private investigator at this time was the only one looking for this guy because these guys are like, well, Eric's a drug smuggler.
We can't find this guy. It made no sense why they couldn't find them. It really didn't because I had his name. Everyone at the gym knew him.
So why was it so difficult to find this man? Well, it was difficult because it wasn't his real name. I'd known this man for years.
I consider him one of my best fucking friends and I never even knew his real name. Why would he lie to me about his name?
Because he was setting me up from the beginning. He was setting everyone up from the beginning and the only way we were able to find out because this dickhead didn't miss a beat.
He continued to go on having people unknowingly smuggle opium from. So that Swedish woman got caught, got arrested, but with him and he was able to pose bell.
But when my mom was proud, investigator brought it to the investigators in charge of this case. They go that always got different aliases.
They rearrested him simply on that information, denied him bell knowing now that he's got different aliases, they let the Swedish girl go back to your country without being charged with in less than two weeks.
Simply because her story matched mine and several others, they deemed her a dupe. A dupe is someone who has no idea they're being used to smuggle anything illegal.
A mule is somebody who knows they're smuggling something illegal. Erik Aude:  A mule is in on it. A dupe has no fucking clue and it happens all the time.
So when I got that information, I was happy. I was like, all right, my being in jail helped a woman not be in jail.
So something good finally came from some from this holy shit, something good probably came from this. So I said to the guy, now that you got the real guy, what's going to happen?
When do I get to go home? And I can tell from the DEA is an expression. Everyone but Christy, the new counselors, Christy was cool.
She was respectful, but everyone else had made fun of me. Maybe next time you'll pack a little lighter. Maybe next time you won't get so greedy. They see you in jail.
So they assume you're there because you deserve to be there because that's what they want to do. I've never seen someone that was actually innocent.
So here he is sitting across the table from me telling me he knows I'm innocent and that he can't do anything for me. So fucked up. The embassy, the embassy likes to make fun of you.
They like to put it on you, but the truth is it's on them. They could do something. They could have done something. Even if I had been guilty, they could have done something, but now that they knew that I was innocent, it's not that they could do something that's that they won't because they don't want to muddy the waters as they say.
They don't want to drip. They said if it was a visa violation or a murder case, they can get involved. They need to be way the fuck flexible on that because I percent believe that a lot of people go to jail for shit they don't do sure, especially in narcotics related, especially in our narcotics related, and the embassy just doesn't give a shit.
They were criminals in there, they were rapists in there, they were murderers in there, they were drug smugglers in there.
His net worth began to rise. All contributed to his net worth. All contributed to his wealth. Aude has also served as a stuntman in numerous film and television projects, which enabled him to establish a decent level of fame and a considerable net worth.
Reportedly, an Armenian man named Razmik Minasian used Aude to smuggle opium, without revealing his intentions to him.
Aude was convicted in and sentenced to seven years in Pakistani prison. Aude has since continued with his acting career, but in addition, he plays poker around the world, and is also a part owner of five Californian restaurants, which have contributed to his net worth.
